The Heart of the Blog

What’s Up Wednesday is really the core of this blog.  It provides a calendar of events for the next week. Usually, the events listed will be for the next week beginning Sunday, but since this is the first one and there are a few fun things before then I will include them here also.Please make sure to call ahead or check the website as things can change.  Have a wonderful week!

11 Wednesday – 15 Sunday

Sparta Town and Country Days.  This is a good, old-fashioned small town fair complete with a parade, car show, and craft fair.  It’s worth the short drive to Sparta even if you are on the other side of town. Schedule and details are online.
