Notes from the Nurse

Welcome back!!! The new year came in “hot” and it seems summer wants to hang around a bit yet!!

Riceville has a new addition- the splash pad at the Library City Park- due to the hard work from our awesome Riceville Community Club members through donations from grants, fundraisers, individuals, businesses, banks, and organizations and many hours of “sweat equity” from the members and individuals in the community. What a wonderful addition to our little town!!

Get out and enjoy this new addition and have a great weekend!
