The Halloween Season Is Here!

We had a beautiful day for the Halloween Parade! This year's parade featured a half-dozen area Bands, which I like to see. The kids in costumes joined in on Main Street for the judging. Maybe it was the wonderful weather, but there was a good crowd gathered along the route.

I'm Still Here!

I know, I've been fairly quiet here lately, just occasionally updating the events corner, but hopefully I'll start getting some more photos posted. Anyway, to start, here are the new Dairy Coolers at S&W! It's been a mess all week, but hopefully it'll be worth it. Thanks to our customers for putting up with us!
