From the community members that make up the Colony Days Committee, we are honored to put on the annual celebration that brings us all together to appreciate the place we call home. This year will be a bit creative, but very special as we safely celebrate.  Join us as we honor the strength of women of 100 years ago with the foresight to shape the future, fighting for their rights, founding our Library and enhancing lives through art.
