President’s Message

School is in session so make sure you take extra caution for kids running in the road. With all the rain we had take extreme caution on the roads. As of today (September 6th) we have two to three weeks with no rain – so go out and let’s hit the road.

If you have not done a Ride & Dine, it is a great experience. Let’s try to have a few more “Ride & Dine’s” before the snow falls.
