Thank you to everyone who helped with the Summer’s End picnic and to everyone who came. The Halsey Shedd RFD served up some great burgers and hotdogs, and the table was loaded with wonderful contributions from the community. We hope you all had a great time -- we certainly did. We’ve already heard great suggestions on things to add for next year.
