Our phone system has been experiencing sporadic outages during the past week or so. CenturyTel has been dispatched several times, but we are sorry to report that we continue to experience intermittent outages. However, our email system is still up and running if you need to contact us, bearing in mind our Winter Break schedule (see notice below).
Want to help your community, but not sure how?

It's that time of year again ... .
