  • Celebrating 90 years of Summer Fun!

    Sixty Seconds with Judi In the 1920’s Arthur Linvill grabbed his horse and a scoop and dredged out the pond hidden in the hollow so the neighborhood families could have a decent swimming hole.

    Sixty Seconds with Judi Today, as I walked out of my house I noticed that my Lilacs were in bloom. My heart and mind immediately were flooded with memories of my mom.
