North Pike District Library in Griggsville treated GP students to a free snow cone from Midwest Snowie of Pittsfield last Thursday as an end-of-year treat! What a fun way to spend the last day of school and a great way to kick off summer! Thank you, NPDL!

The Pike County Health Department will be collecting dead birds from May 1-October 15. Why, you ask? The PCHD will be sending the dead birds to the Illinois Department of Public Health to be tested for West Nile Virus (WNV). Monitoring the bird and mosquito populations helps predict when and where humans will be at risk for WNV infection. The health department is looking for these most wanted birds: blue jay, crow, house sparrow, robin, and house finch. Call 217-285-4407 x 117 to get more information on what to do if you find one of the above-mentioned birds as well as what makes a bird eligible.
