Going Back to My House

Dear Lyons Community,
This weekend I am going back to my house in Lyons with my family. We have been going to Lyons a lot this fall to visit our house and to go to church in Lyons. It was very nice going to our house again. I can’t wait to go back home. Whoever helped turn on the electricity and turn on the water, THANK YOU VERY MUCH!
