It's June, and you know what that means. Dairy Month, of course. Every year a farm in Pierce County hosts the Dairy Breakfast. This year, it's happening on June 15 and is being hosted by Bev Peterson and her family. "We just find that it's important to help promote the dairy industry," said Bev's daughter Michelle Peterson. A farm in the Pierce County area has hosted this event every June for about the last decade, and Petersons last were hosts in 2015.

Project SEARCH interns started working at River Falls Area Hospital in September 2018. On Tuesday, June 4 they graduated. "This year, the interns have all grown so much in their confidence, as well as their social skills," said Project SEARCH instructor Natasha Herum.

Project SEARCH is an organization for 18-30 year-old adults with disabilities that hires applicants as interns and helps get their career paths started after high school.
