A New Year….

News
January always seems like one of the longest months of the year; however this year it seems to have flown by. I think it's because we've only experienced a true taste of winter the last couple of weeks. We've kicked off our year already with our general meeting on January 9th! However it's way too cold outside to get too much done; so you won't hear a lot from us until Spring. If you're looking for an advanced list we hope to have those posted soon, so check back often. Save the Date for September 16-18, 2016 and join us for another fair. "Keep Calm & Plow On"
