First Place! Yabba Dabba Doo!
The library's Flinstone mobile with Fred, Wilma, Barney, Betty and members of the Royal Order of Water Buffalos won first place for creativity (non-commercial category) in the July 4 parade. This is the fifth year that we can claim this distinction thanks to the talents of Information Technology Manager Mike Driskell and his family and friends who built the float.
