After the Spring and Summer rains flooded our area many people from the community came out to clean up the parks that provides a greenbelt for our area - It is always nice to see people "Giving" back to their communities! *Recent storms have once again flooded this area - Currently the lakes are 14 feet over the banks and it is still coming - The homes are safe right now but the wildlife is having to find higher ground....
