The heavy snowfall last Friday dampened the planned clean up at the Lilly-Washington War Memorial field. The cleanup day will be held March 28 starting at 8:00 AM. Parents, coaches, team members and board members are ask to help out during the morning.

The Lilly-Washington Public Library will be hosting its annual Easter Egg Hunt this Saturday, March 28 at 1:00 PM at the firemen’s pavilion on Rail Road Street.
