"Adopt-a-Grave" - The TAHS will again offer the "Adopt-a-Grave" program.

Flower arrangements are provided by Flowerland in Prophetstown. Contact president Joan Johnson to order. 815-438-7581, (c) 815-622-8705 or garyjoan@thewisp.net. Small, $5.00, Med., $10, Lg., $15 or a saddle for $25. Flyers will be posted around Tampico & Prophetstown with pictures of arrangements.
