One of the truly amazing annual exhibitions has arrived delivering a world of wonder and the promise of spring.

NC Clerk Jason Vanderstelt is looking to get some younger citizens involved in the process as Election Inspectors and to recruit these potential officials he is holding an Election Inspector training this Friday from 4:30-7:30pm at the county administration building in White Cloud.

There you go.
Keep in touch.
