The website says camps are cancelled but also says specialty camps are only cancelled for June 15-19 and June 22-26. Does this mean the specialty camps will still run in July & August? Thanks!
Please take a moment to sign this petition to block the destruction of forest next to Radcliff Park!
I have not seen an advertisement for it, so I wanted to pass it along for anyone looking for something to do this weekend: There is an indoor flea market and craft fair happening at Sherwood Community center this Saturday!! It is from 9am to 2pm. Come and see all the goodies people are bringing - maybe you'll even complete some early Christmas shopping 😁😁

Why is the splash pad closing for a private wedding, and why is the wedding planner telling us all she is turning off the water at 5 when the generic signs say that the splash pad will close from 5:30-8:15?
I own a tree service and will be working in the area soon. Does anyone know where I can post an ad to hire a CDL driver?
