Dryden Junior Fire Day; development plans can improve

Cathy Wakeman's Dryden Town Talk visits Junior Fire Academy, a week of drills, training, and competition for 10 to 16-year-olds. She also reports on Music in the Park and Music in the Hollow, plus the opening of the 4-H Fair today and the upcoming Healing Harps service at Reach Out for Christ Church.

We'll see if Stephen Lucente's upcoming announcements for Varna carry any such similar improvements.
