The town was full of festival-goers over last week through the weekend bringing good music to folks from near and far, and boosting the town’s economy. Besides the lessons, they enjoyed tubing, swimming, playing, jumping, dancing, eating, etc. The downtown area was congested all weekend with hardly a place to park. All enjoyed their stay in Lyons.

Another week gone by! Only one month until school. We hope everyone got to do something exciting this summer.
The opening free concert in the park was postponed due to rain. The only rain of the week, and had to be on that day and time. Plan to attend this Thursday, at 6:30 p.m., in Sandstone Park. A great concert is in store with the Danny Shafer Band, plus the Farmer’s Market and food truck. The Blue Canyon Boys will be featured on Thursday, August 1.

We notice most of our lawns could stand a lot of water, but it’s too expensive. We praise those who are spending $300 to $400 a month for a nice green lawn!
