Tedious govenment paperwork?

Well, probably yes. But not for you, because you can check out the BARC Field Day on Saturday, June 6, 10AM-4PM. According to their website, they’ll have “hay rides, an animal exhibit, farm machinery, research exhibits and hands-on demonstrations.” Bring the family! It’s about 2 miles from Cherry Hill Park.
