Can you believe that we’re nearing the end of summer already? Osage School District kids started back to school yesterday. It feels like we just celebrated the 4th of July with fireworks and fun all around the lake. And wasn’t it only a minute before that we watched a fabulous pyrotechnic show over Memorial Day weekend? Who wants to wait until New Year’s Eve for the skies above to illuminate in bursts of color? I know we don’t! You don’t have to wait either. Watch the Labor Day weekend fireworks over the lake and feel like a kid again when you “ooh” and “aah” with delight.
