Traffic
Still no delays to report on Beaver Island.

Hey, let’s be careful out there. Especially in the school zone.
To Lucas, Sophia and all our listeners, becoming an expert won’t make you perfect, but it will help you avoid mistakes better than others in your field.

On a lighter note, how many apples grow on a tree? That would be all of them!!!

That’s the WVBI Community Calendar for Monday May 7th, 2018.
