The Prentiss Police Department held its annual Extravaganza on Saturday, June 4.

People from counties across the state traveled great distances to participate in the car show and other events.

“I appreciate everyone’s kindness and generosity,” said Chief Joe Bullock, “We had a great turn out this year.”

The chief conveyed that this year the Prentiss Police Department raised over $3,000.

Most of these funds came from the raffle, live and silent auctions.

“I would like to thank everyone who donated to our auction.”  I would also like to thank the Mayor and Board of Aldermen for their continuous support. This would have never been possible without everyone’s help,” Bullock added.

The crowd was entertained by local singing talent Tanner Stuart. Stuart is the son of Anthony and Holli Stuart of Carson.

Alderman Keith Bridges and the Farm Bureau Team donated this year’s raffle item, a yeti cooler.

Ronnie Shivers won first place and people’s choice in the motorcycle show. Randy Broom won first place in modern cars. Adriana Broom placed second and Keith Bridges placed third in that category.

Pam Shivers was awarded first place in the classic car show. Randy Stamps won second and Ronnie Shivers won third. People’s choice for the car show was awarded to Randy Broom.

Along with car and motorcycle shows, Douglas Farms also hosted a dog show.

Kristen Bullock, extravaganza committee member and member of Douglas Farm’s Show Club stated, “I was thrilled that Billy Douglas and the rest of our show club family was part of this year’s event. Both children and adults had a great time. We hope to include them again next year.”

As always, the event will be held on the first Saturday in June 2017.
