Many downtown activities on Alumni Saturday

Alumni weekend will soon be in Albion, and plenty of activities and events are planned for Saturday, June 18.
Unfortunately, a special event planned for Friday, June 17, had to be canceled at Valley View Flowers east of Albion, because the June 6 hail storm wiped out many of their flowers. This event was planned to include live music.
Saturday’s outdoor activities are subject to weather conditions.
