The Department of Veterans Affairs holds a listening session today for the Salem area. This is one of fifty sessions taking place across the country.

Today kicks off the second and final weekend of the Maple Festival at Southernmost Maple in Highland County. It’s hosting several events today and tomorrow, with pancakes to go, baked goods, furniture, vendors and more.
