HARRISTOWN NEWS: Sounds of music fills area

Believe it or not, It is summer. You probably haven’t been able to take part in many summer activities yet because of the deluge of rain that we have experienced.

Johnnie Harris writes the Harristown News.

Hopefully, that weather pattern is over and cookouts, fun in the park, family reunions and many other activities can begin.
Whatever activity you’re taking part in, please be safe.
