Beautiful fall day on tap for tomorrow…

It sounds like a truly delightful Fall day tomorrow – sunny and warm. Spend a little time at the market between Inauguration weekend events (volunteer activities from 9-11, alumni tree planting at 11, and the Presidential Inauguration ceremony at 1:30PM). Stock up on fresh produce and snacks!
