Annual Open House.  On November 9, our community gathered for the unveiling of the 2020 Byron Historical Society exhibit and calendar, commemorating farm memories in the Town of Byron.  Visitors enjoyed light refreshments and a presentation of the colors in honor of Veterans Day conducted by the Bintzler-Waehler American Legion Post No. 347 of Lomira and the Veterans of Foreign Wars Post No. 8092 of Oakfield.  Thanks to these groups and all veterans for their service.  Thanks, too, to all who attended our event.
