Week of 10/16 - 10/20/17

Hello Panthers! Guess what? I hope you had a wonderful weekend! You knew that was coming! Either that or you thought I was going to use a phrase starting with chicken and rhyming with what:) I loved the cooler weather on Sunday. Looks like it will be going up and down this week. Hopefully it will be a little easier to stay outside longer, at least it will if the mosquitos go away. We are getting ready for an extremely busy next two weeks. Please check out the “Upcoming Events” and “Other News to Know” to stay on top of everything.

Hello Panthers! I hope you had a great weekend + extra. I could have used a day off, but it was nice to get caught up on things yesterday.
