WELCOME – Wow, it is August already.

This upcoming Monday is the first of the month, so the senior citizens will meet for their potluck and fellowship at noon.

All area senior citizens are invited to join them.


Welcome Library continues the Summer Reading Program through August but suggests the children pick up any prizes and finish up the books they are reading.

Toward the end of August, they will have a special event coordinated with the DNR, so watch for more details.
