The annual New Albin Days celebration is scheduled to take place in the community of New Albin this weekend, Friday and Saturday, June 13 and 14. A wide variety of events is being scheduled, with a schedule of events available on Page 12A of this week's issue of The Standard.
This year's New Albin Days button (pictured with this article) that can be purchased for admission to most any of this year's events was designed by Jonah Reinke. The buttons are available for purchase at most New Albin businesses and on the festgrounds at this year's event.
