Buy Local! Summer's Bountiful Harvest, Music & More await You at Mount Airy Main Street Farmers' Market, Wed, June 29, 3-7PM
"Sunshine on the water looks so lovely, Sunshine almost always makes me high. If I had a tale that I could tell you,
I'd tell a tale sure to make you smile. If I had a wish that I could wish for you, I'd make a wish for sunshine all the while."
~ John Denver, Sunshine on My Shoulders
