Good Afternoon Westminster! What an eventful week we are having here at Westminster! Thanks to all of you who came to the JoAnn Reafsnyder Memorial Library dedication on Tuesday. I hope that you find it a place to come study, research, and gather with one another on a regular basis. There are a lot of awesome books for all of us to check out and read!
