Cool nights bring cooler news

The wonderful nip in the air this weekend was a nice change of pace and a great teaser for what’s to come this fall.

The cooler temperatures also made for a more pleasant start to Fall Pilgrimage, which began Friday. We hope our tourists are enjoying the beautiful days.

Plenty of good news filled the community during last week of September. Let’s review a few headlines.
