It’s time for April events!  Butler County is a beautiful place to live and gets more beautiful as the trees and flowers bloom. There are things to do all over the county. Join your friends and neighbors to enjoy all the events and talent in our community.  Make sure to thank the volunteers and coordinators of these events – big events are a lot of work, but our county wouldn’t be what it is without them.
