Hello, everybody! To say we’ve gotten a lot of rain lately is an underestimate. No kidding, the puddles in the road leading to Casa Webster have started sprouting crawdads, and rumor has it some lake trout are looking to set up housekeeping in the front yard.
Happy hometown birthday wishes go out to Vickie Brown of nearby Glen Allen, sporting a paper party hat May 29, and to Allyson Elliott and Patricia Greer, both cutting cakes on June 1.
As you head out to the backyard grill, the pool, or to a festive holiday get-together this upcoming weekend, take a moment to reflect on the true reason for Memorial Day. Remember, kids, freedom isn’t free. Thank a soldier for his or her willingness to protect our great nation and way of life, salute a vet, and remember those who’ve made the ultimate sacrifice.
This just in: Patrick Henry High School’s PHun Run Color 5k Walk/Run originally scheduled for last Saturday, May 21, has been rescheduled to Saturday, June 4 due to the inclement weather. The race still starts at 9 a.m. at the school grounds on Route 54. Fingers crossed for a sunny day!
Bring the whole gang to the Cochrane Rockville Library Friday, June 3 for First Friday Films.

Call (804) 749-3146 for the film’s title.
The Summer Reading Program returns to the library beginning Saturday, June 4.

There are special clubs for pre-readers, grade schoolers, teens and adults, too. Don’t miss it!
Learn to protect yourself and those you love from the perils of identity theft and fraud at a special library program Thursday, June 9, at 6:30 p.m. Find out who’s more likely to be targeted and pick up tips on staying one step ahead of crooks. Light refreshments will be served.
