~My Reason For Our Blog~
"You will have significant experiences. I hope that you will write them down and keep record of them, that you will read them from time to time and refresh your memory of those meaningful and significant things. Some may be funny. Some may be significant only to you. Some of them may be sacred and quietly beautiful. Some may build one upon another until they represent a lifetime of special experiences." — Gordon B. Hinckley

~New In Town~

It only took 396 days to get from groundbreaking to the
Grand Opening!!!
We finally have our new library.
It is wonderful.
We wentwith some friends to the Grand Opening Celebration.
We stood out in the cool beautiful Fall day and listened to the
opening remarks about the new library and patiently waited
to see the inside. There were so many people also waiting to
get a look inside that we decided to go the the craft show out
of town for the morning and then see the inside in the afternoon.
It was well worth the wait!!!
