With this week being so very hot, people stayed close to home and enjoyed their air conditioning. However, several garage sales were held during the week and weekend, including the Fall Rummage Sale at the United Church of Crawfordsville, which once again was a great success. A large crowd is always present with people traveling to Old Thresher’s.
