Good afternoon. In the newsletter today: Philomath Family Medicine’s new digs look pretty cool and we have a story about about a celebration that took place Tuesday afternoon. It was also a busy day for sports with the Warriors winning at home in girls soccer and volleyball and on the road for boys soccer. Plus, read about an interesting new event coming to Summit (and if you’re interested, make your reservation by this weekend).

Thanks for reading!
