What a glorious bike ride along the lakes to Hawk I had last week. Warm sun, cool breeze, & shimmering water. Not much traffic, so it was really ideal. So nice to be able to make that ride – the first time in almost 2 years! Please note that Camp Plymouth State Park will open through Columbus Day weekend.
I was blessed to be able to officiate at the wedding of Staci Gebhardt & Rob Bishop at the church on Sunday evening. The dinner at the Echo Lake Inn after the ceremony was delightful!
Well, school is back in session & with it sports events. I understand that Holli Olsen scored a goal for the WUHS field hockey team in their game against Otter Valley, which they won – way to go!
