LHS Friday Flyer- March 31, 2017

Good evening,

As we look out the window and see snow falling, we may find it hard to believe that spring is here and the Red Sox Opening Day at Fenway is Monday.  Let's hope the snow clears quickly for spring sports and outdoor activities.

When you find a moment, please take a look at updates from LHS.
