Roadwork on Center City's agenda

There were members who felt quotes were still possible for this year and some wanted to get estimates and proceed now on correcting hill issues. Others thought the city should get the “simpler” straightforward projects out of the way first.

Stacy Daze was fun, Threshing Show opens this weekend, art show next
We made our way up to Stacy this weekend.  But, I feel bad, this is two years in a row they have had rain during Stacy Daze.   But, just like last year, the rain subsided just in time to have a grande day parade.  People were having a blast not getting wet and eating candy from the parade to their hearts’ content.  The car show on Friday had a great turnout as it was a spectacular evening and even the fireworks and street dance were rain free.
