NEW THIS WEEK!
The trustees have a lot of florescent light bulbs stored in the basement, which will not work with our current lighting system. They are FREE for the asking. The bulbs are 4 feet long and have two prongs. Some of the bulbs are large and some small. If not picked up by the middle of April we will be disposing of them. Contact Folmer for pickup of the FREE bulbs.
