The deadline for the History book is fast approaching so make sure you’re not missed. On June 4th, you will have the opportunity to get your family picture taken at the playground by the hall from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. If the weather is bad, they will have pictures at the seniors’ center. The cost for this is $20.
