MILDRED — Sure, the Mildred Store still offers a Norman Rockwellian oasis in today’s breakneck-paced, 21st century climate.

From their monthly music night jamborees, to other community events such as prom dress sales and a fundraiser for a local softball player, Loren and Regena Lance strive to offer much more than groceries.
