    Have you seen our new Digital Message Board?

    By the time you are reading this newsletter, we hope to have power to our new message board. The board was purchased with a portion of a large donation we received from the estate of John and Olive Lyman.  The message board will serve many purposes and will keep us on the up and up with this new technology for years to come.  Be sure to check it out next time you stop by!
