Be careful and prepared for the upcoming winter months!

  • Keep driveways and sidewalks salted to avoid possible injuries
  • A tip for parents: Keep a bottle of 2 parts rubbing alcohol and 1 part cool water handy to defrost your windshield without scraping!
  • Make sure you bundle up before going out. Its better to have more layers than you need than needing more layers and not having any!

Be safe, but don't forget to have fun!

Birthdays:

*In the month of January, dont forget to wish a happy birthday to Kara Hockenbery and Xavier Nichols!
