Sue's Views: Making an effort makes it worth it to shop local
The last few weeks have been wildly busy in Morris and it is the stuff that makes small town living worthwhile. Helping Eul's Hardware Hank celebrate 85 years in business with a picnic lunch and cake is just about the best way to spend part of a Saturday afternoon that I know of. A...
