Sumner to host many downtown events

You don’t need a GPS tracking system to navigate through all the fun downtown events that are scheduled for 2009. That’s right. The new annual Downtown Event calendar is at the printers right now receiving the final graphic touches and will be available in the next week or two. Many of you already know that the best place to pick up a copy of the much sought after calendar that graces the front of many a Sumner refrigerator is at your local downtown merchants. Rumor has it that many families are reluctant to plan their vacations until they see the dates for the events so they don’t miss anything fun. Ha!
