  3. This community has come together during this bizarre time. We are small. Nothing like this is supposed to happen, or so we thought. This weekend we hold an annual festival, but this has placed an unusual twist to our otherwise festive mood. We miss Tara and are searching everywhere we can. Our students and teachers are at a loss for words. All we have is prayer and each other. Please pray for her family and her safe return.
