Nearly everyone came in the kitchen to look at the new freezer donated by Helen Ricco to the seniors and the grange. Thanks! Please do not wash the outside with soap or detergent, or it will change color.
Someone had left a light on in the basement. Were you looking for mice? Who turned on the overhead fan in the kitchen? It was cold in there this morning!
Here is hoping everyone is in better spirits next week.
