Good Morning!

Mike is on vacation for the next few days, so I (Sarah) will be taking over the note writing…. ENJOY! 😊

Today’s weather will be mostly sunny, with a high near 78 and a low around 64.

The local State Parks each have several pretty cool-sounding activities happening today:

And/or, play a fun-filled game of Tree Jeopardy at Herrington Manor State Park beginning at 6:30pm.

Take the whole family to Downtown Oakland this evening for the Pocket Park movie beginning at 8:00pm. Tonight’s movie is Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle sponsored by Rob Michael – State Farm Insurance.

There is a new Garrett Grower’s Cooperative Farmer’s Market that will be held weekly in McHenry! The market will be set up on Friday’s from 4:30 to 7:00pm and Saturday’s from 11:00am to 5:00pm at High Mountain Sports next to Slopeside Market.
