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.

We Have a Choice

Dear Lyons Community,

We have a choice as a community. We can choose to build the future Lyons. We can stand up, dust ourselves off and create what we want Lyons to be. Or, we can contract, hunker down and think only about our losses.
