Fun is set to return to the England Prairie Pioneer Club this summer as the group is planning their usual activities and planting others.

The group started out the season Monday, May 3, by planting potatoes in one of the fields on site. They plan to harvest those potatoes during the last of the club's show days Sunday, Aug. 22. You can come see if there's a potato for you.
