    Would love to receive more details on the Bemis Heritage Days event. I’ve always wanted to get there and explore the history of the community and am wondering if this event would be a good time to do so.

      Bemis Days will be May 15-16 this year. We would love for you to come and be a part of the celebration. The schedule of events is on the home page of the website. Are you a descendent of Judson Moss Bemis?
