HARRISTOWN NEWS: Church continues outreach

Summer is a great time for family reunions, outings, socialization and travel. It’s also, unfortunately, a time of increased drownings. Please practice water safety rules. With the shortage of lifeguards it is imperative to be extra vigilant with children around water.

Johnnie Harris writes the Harristown News.

Continue to stay safe and enjoy your summer activities.
