Honoring Our Community Award Winners!

02 Aug 2019 3:05 PM | Anonymous member (Administrator)

We are happy to see the weekend rapidly approaching! There is so much to be thankful for today.  We have another little kitten that showed up this week.  We have him ready to go home with someone who is looking for a baby kitty. SWEET LITTLE BABY kitty.  

We are also getting ready for our 97th Annual Chamber of Commerce Awards Banquet.  We have a great group of folks receiving awards on Tuesday night at the American Legion Hall. These are local citizens who have given their time, talent, and treasure over the years. We are blessed to be able to honor them with a small token of appreciation. We have sold out of tickets this year and are so excited to see everyone. 

DID YOU KNOW SCHOOL STARTS IN TWO WEEKS? Where did the summer go?

Just got a phone call from the Judge's office.  We are under a County Wide EMERGENCY BURN BAN!
