Around Boonsboro

What a weekend!

Greetings, neighbors. What a beautiful weekend! I spent mine with some of my favorite people and doing some of my favorite things!

School honors fifth-grader

Nick Adams, a fifth-grader at Pleasant Valley Elementary School, has been named the Character Counts! Student of the Month.

Nick, who is in Mrs. Toms' class, exemplifies the six pillars of character: trustworthiness, respect, responsibility, fairness, caring and citizenship.

He is also an accomplished musician, playing both piano and trumpet.

He is the son of John and Mary Adams of Rohrersville. Congratulations to a fine young man!
