WORD OF THE DAY: Our Merriam Webster word of the day is Factotum

A factotum is a person who has many diverse activities or responsibilities, and especially one whose work involves a wide variety of tasks.

// After graduating from college, Natalia worked for several years as an office factotum.


Now, to wrap up for this Beaver Island Friday…
