CASS COUNTY - PHOTO OF THE WEEK

     This sleepy little town in the southeast part of the county has a major highway running right through main street. It actually becomes main street. The town may only have 200 people, but the kids (and the adults that still act like kids) just recently got new playground equipment as seen in the photo above. With the new equipment, the old equipment, the baseball field, the park spaces, the little library, and the large outdoor pavilion - plenty of summer activities will be taking place once the school year is over. Have you been here, and do you remember what was pictured in the photo of the week from 2022 wherein this town was originally featured?
