Dare to Dream


Back in the day, Ginny and her late husband raised Tennessee Walking Horses and she has many wonderful memories of this. She has pictures of her horses in her apartment and will sometimes share those memories with the staff at Prairie Hills Independence. We thought being able to see and pet a horse again would be an awesome surprise for her.


It had been three long years that Kate had been to her daughter’s home in Sarasota, Florida. So Kate and Prairie Hills Life Enrichment Coordinator boarded an airplane at the Eastern Iowa Airport and headed for the coast.


Chief Dave Niedert of the Independence Police Department honored Larry with a ride in his car as a Dare to Dream experience. It has been a while since Larry was a police officer in Waterloo, Iowa, but he still has many stories to share of when he was.
