Amazing how the year is going by. June has brought us the heat and humidity. Along with that are sightings of the new fawn crop. We hope all are delighted with these amazing births of nature’s wonders. Please use caution as you mow, the fawns may be hidden in the tall grass. What will July and August bestow upon us?
UPCOMING EVENTS – You are all invited to the ORWMA Ice Cream Social on Saturday, July 20th at 6 PM. Bring a lawn chair and your ice cream bucket to Lynne Bigelow’s back yard (1287 Oakridge Road).
