The Blooming Prairie Chamber and the 4th of July committee extend a big thanks to those who purchased 150th anniversary buttons to help fund this past holiday's festivities. Time to get out your buttons and see if you're the winner.

Winners of 50 Blooming Prairie bucks are numbers: 1080, 1097, 45, 1098

Winners of 100 Blooming Prairie bucks are numbers: 500, 819, 1000

I wonder what the odds are of both 500 and 1,000 being pulled out. I was kind of close as I had button 51. Maybe I'll keep wearing my button and people will think 51 is my age.

Those who have any of the winning numbers above may bring their button into the Farmers and Merchants Bank in Blooming Prairie to collect their Blooming Prairie bucks.

Thanks again for your support of the 150th and 4th of July celebration. Extra kudos to the weatherman who cooperated for the most all four days of the big event.
