Happy Days Are Here Again!! Not the extremely happy days of 2004, but definitely happier than the past 5 years!!

At our monthly Milestone meeting on Thursday, Mike Wheatley gave his statistical report which showed improvement on all fronts.

Now is the time to start planning and preparing your garden for the colder months ahead. Taking the time to clean up your lawn and garden now will save you time and money when it comes time to plant in the Spring.
