Good morning from Florence. It looks like another hot summer day.

The American Cancer Society Relay will be Saturday June 25th. It will start at noon with the survivors lunch and the first lap at the Ogle Park. Come support your friends teams. Buy balloons for the balloon release at the end of the day. The balloons are $5.00 and take the place of the candles this year. Its a good way to remember your loved ones.
