Here's what's going on in town today.

Hello on this April Fool's weekend. While many may be celebrating the first weekend of April with a prank, we're celebrating with toast, sourdough toast. That's right, the first of April is more than merely an excuse to fool your friends, it's also National Sourdough Bread Day. So this weekend, instead of pulling a hoax, eat some toast.
