Fall Fun

Fall Fun

This fall is like no other, due to the pandemic. We may not be hosting the International Festival or the scarecrow making event at the Farmers’ Market this year and you may not be doing as many of your usual fall activities, but that doesn’t mean we can’t celebrate the season and have some fun.
