December 6, 2016.  We are finally able to edit our web site again after many years of not having access
due to an out of date web page building program.  The entire site is being reviewed and put into a more
useable format.  This project was headed by Logan Wenzel, who is studying Computer Science in college. 
Take a moment to read about Logan's excellent work on this project, just simply click here.
