2019 Bike to School Day
Bike to School Day was delayed a week because of the rainy weather. Kids love bicycling to school and physical activity helps them form healthy habits that can last a lifetime. It also helps them build strong bones, muscles and joints, and it decreases the risk of obesity. Plus, it's a lot fun! View more photos here .
You Won!
If you get a call from someone who tells you you've won $2.4 million but you have to buy a $500 gift card and send it to them in order to confirm you want the prize, don't believe them! This is just the latest telephone scam to be received by a Spring Grove resident. Other scams might say you owe back taxes, there’s a problem with your credit card account, or your computer is infected with a virus that the caller can fix if you give them access to your computer. Learn how to identify and avoid phone scams here .
