From the CEO
It was an active spring in northeast Kansas, as it was in several areas of the Midwest. While following weather coverage, I noticed the amount of people taking an interest in some of these massive storms. 

I couldn’t help but think of the danger some of these folks were in, but more importantly how dangerous the conditions may become for not only first responders but line workers like our FreeState crews. 


Right on Target with the help of Operation Round-Up ®
Lexie Welsh ( pictured with her mom, Dianna ) got her first bow for her fifth birthday. At just shy of knee-high to a grasshopper, she took a challenge to hit a balloon hanging from a tree. With the snap of the bow and the pop of that balloon, a love of archery was born. Now, the 9-year-old Valley Victors 4-H’er is in her second year of the archery project where her love for shooting her bow is being molded into a passion. 

“I love doing archery,” says Lexie. “It’s hard though.”
