Suzanne's Around Town
New Seasons Grand Opening, Oktoberfest, & Rose City Rhythmic!

Hi! Everyone-

Well, it's been a toasty start to the school year! Hope re-entry wasn't too traumatic for those of you who jumped back onto the treadmill of school activities!

There's a new New Seasons in town and library storytimes are running again.

Stay cool!

Suzanne
