Join our Presidential Parade Everyday at NOON!

In honor of President's Day, the 200th birthday of Abraham Lincoln, and the recent inauguration of our new president, we are celebrating for 44 days!

Every day at NOON we hear a local person speak the words of our president. We started on Jan 18th with George Washington and will go until March 2 with Barack Obama. Our readers are from the local community, read for about 10 minutes, and are giving some fascinating background information as well.

We've had participants from all parts of our community including a very articulate and informed middle school student, judges, realators, teachers, writers, a bailiff, bankers, attorneys, retired & active professors, a reverend, a pastor, a doctor, small business owners, students....well as you can see, from all parts of our community.

Here is the entire schedule of readers.
Please join us to hear these speakers bring our presidents to life.
Bring your lunch or grab a coffee & a snack here.
