It's time to look ahead to warm-weather activities

Lockport Union-Sun & Journal — I know the snow has hardly melted, but we need to be looking ahead to the green growing season and the delights of spring and summer in Somerset. We have an official opening date for the Barker Farmers Market, so look ahead and get involved. We will open with a classic car cruise and community night on June 12 in the village park. The Barker Jazz Band will be performing. We have so many talented musicians in this community; it would be nice to see more local talent in the gazebo on market nights. If you are interested, contact market director Jo Ann Greenwald at 795-3787.

Thank you to all who came out for the Optimists’ wagon ride on Saturday. We were lucky enough to get in a fun afternoon before the snowstorm hit Barker. Thank you to Dale Jenks and Hartland Carriage for the fun ride with their magnificent horses.
