Date and Time: Monday, March 6th
5pm - Doors will be open and you can stop by to view Tom's hiking gear
6pm - Talk begins

Program description: Are you looking for an adventure? Tom Brewer Sr. will share his experience hiking the Appalachian Trail, a 2184 mile trek across 14 states from Georgia to Maine. He will provide slides, video, and a backpacking equipment display. This presentation is suitable for all ages from children to seniors.

Last December the students of Tremont Grade School wrote letters and sent Christmas cards to our troops. This past week we received a surprise from the "Exile 15" Alpha Company, 2nd Battalion. This flag was flown by the aviation regiment on a combat mission in Afghanistan. The flag, along with the certificate and picture of the crew, will be displayed in the Grade School as a reminder of the men and women who make sacrifices for us on a daily basis.
