Ashland’s LOCAL Aflac agent – June Update

It’s been another excellent month, meeting my fellow Ashlanders, and connecting with so many of you, as Ashland’s LOCAL Aflac agent.

This month, I rediscovered the Tuesday Market! There is nothing like meeting face to face with the good people who grow and raise our food and flowers. And the artists are inspiring!

Lots of good stuff to eat while you’re there. Lovely local musicians round it all out. Our market is a one of a kind place. Do take in the lovely Spring weather while it lasts!
