Doesn't seem possible school is starting already. Where has the summer gone.
Seems good to see the Village Store opened again as Breaus Too. Best wishes to them.
Sorry to see the Feeding Friendzy is closed with such hard feeling toward the town. The problem was probably on both sides and maybe could have been fixed.
I remember when the town was thriving with four stores, two mills, a barber shop and Birch Villa Inn. Now we have one store. Is this progress?
Anyone having old flags to retire, please leave them at Ken and Alice Hoyts or any member of the Daughters of Union Veterans of the Civil War as they are having a flag retiring ceremony at their September 13 meeting.
Sympathy is extended to the family of James J. Roberts
