Here we are September 1oth, can you believe that summer is over and that we are three weeks into the school year.  I guess summer is only over if you go by what you see on the calendar, as our days have been filled with summer heat. 

What are your plans this weekend?  There are, as always are quite a few things on our Ramona docket that are sure to be fun and keep you local. But before I list them off to you I would just like to say that if you haven’t already stopped at our newest restaurant in town, The Main Course Restaurant you need to do it this weekend.  The food is AMAZING and the whole place from staff to interior is wonderful!  Do yourself a favor and go!  You won’t be sorry you did!
