A special thank you to all who helped organize and rode in the annual 9/11 motorcycle ride. The event was a tremendous success. It was wonderful to see that such a tragic event in our country’s history is being honored in such a worthwhile way. Be sure to thank a veteran.

August was the last month for Second Saturday events in Montgomery this year. There will still be one more live concert in the Montgomery heritage park behind the Library during September. It will be held on Thursday, September 24 in the park. Live band to be announced and be sure to bring your lawn chairs. September has been a wonderful month for weather!
