Well the weather folks say it’s going to get pretty cold next week, but we have another beautiful fall weekend at Grand Lake to get through before that happens.

And, there is plenty going on in Grove this weekend to keep you busy and take your mind of the impending cold.

So, here’s what’s going on:
