Comming up for the 4th of July weeekend.

Joann gives a talk on tablescapes on Wednesday. We have a Gallery walk on Thursday, an opening of an exciting show by Jim Casper, and the Cross village Parade on Saturday at 1:00pm. The Walshs have their 40th on Saturday also. Busy weekend to start the season.

They say no tax increase but about the fact that state road money has been going down. A four cent a gal tax would only restore the funds so really not an increase. We need the infrastructure.

They say that corporations have rights but with no morals or ethics. They have the right to buy any election I guess.
