Thank you to the Madison Baseball Association for hosting another great tournament.  Tournaments like these bring many people and a boon to our local economy.  We appreciate the Madison Baseball Association as do our local businesses.


If you haven’t visited Rexburg Rapids yet, please do.  It’s a great way to spend an afternoon!  We also suggest a visit to the Legacy Flight Museum, Teton Dam Flood Museum and the Carousel.  We do have lots of fun and educational things to do.


Have a great summer and as always – May business be good!
