September 1 – “An once of accomplishment is worth a ton or more of good intentions.”

“Good Neighbor Day” – what a wonderful day this has been. It is such a joy to see the look on a person's face when you give them a rose. Thanks to Rochette's Florist and Carter's Florist and all the sponsors for making this wonderful day possible.

The Prospect Historical Society will meet on Tuesday night September 7, at 7:30 p.m. in the Old Post Office. Please bring a chair.
