This Week in Little News 6/10/2022
Hi, Little News fam! Next weekend is Father’s Day! Have you thought on the gift(s) yet? Some of the unusual gifts we were able to come up with: a family photo shoot (basically, it’s a gift for the whole family but who cares?!), mushroom log kit (dad will be able to grow mushrooms!), BBQ kit or grill master set (for those BBQ lovers). What have you decided to gift next weekend?
