I had a few pleasant surprises this past week. I discovered a tiny fawn lying in my flower bed. I thought it might be abandoned, it was so close to traffic. But checking the next morning it was gone. It must have been rescued by its mother.

The Capon Valley Ruritan has decided to have a reduced version of their 4th of July celebration, no sit-down dinner, no auction and no live music. There will be an opening ceremony at 11 a.m. Barbecued chicken halves and a carryout meal of barbecued chicken with 2 sides and a roll for sale beginning at 10 a.m. The antique car and tractor show will be held. Please come out and support the club, which remains active in the community. They awarded 4 scholarships to graduates this year.

Free COVID-19 testing is being offered in the county. Testing sites, dates and locations will be updated weekly.
