Okay, let's take a break from all the news and goings on and lighten up, let down our hair and enjoy our nice, White, Community! Who said there wasn't anything to do in a small "vanilla white bread" town? There's plenty! There's cribbage and bingo for the little old ladies, dancing and arts, Music Jams, photo exibits, farmers markets and plenty of good clubs and grills to eat at. There's even a haunted house!
