SUMMER PROGRAM EVENTS HERE
We have a tortoise hiding around town this year! Keep an eye out for him in shop windows and see what book he is reading! Come back sometime that week to tell us and get entered into a raffle for fun local foods and activities.
Starts June 11 and ends when he’s raffled off on August 13th at the summer celebration. He moves every Tuesday!
