They say March comes in like a lion and out like a lamb. That saying couldn't be more true in Idaho. Once again we are reminded of the tremendous power and beauty of mother nature as we welcome the month of March. Regardless of the weather that accompanies the beginning of Spring there are plenty of events and activities in our thriving small town.
Come and join us in celebrating Dr. Seuss' birthday. We will have games for the whole family, door prizes, and refreshments! March 1 at 4pm-5:30pm. Check out the Homedale Public Library for lots of activities for the whole family!
