The first weigh-in is Monday, Jan. 16 when the team picture will be taken. Times to be weighed in are from 5 to 9 a.m. and 5 to 7 p.m.

PLYMOUTH â€” This weekendâ€™s Christmas program at Plymouth High School will be quite a production â€” more than 250 students will be donning wacky costumes and singing or playing fun holiday music compilations as part of the show.
This year, the audience will travel to the North Pole, where Santa and his elves are experiencing a little holiday stress in the last few days before Christmas.
â€śThere are definitely sections that are hysterical,â€ť said band director Bryan Ames. â€śThe entire jazz section is dressed as elves.â€ť
ARGOS â€” The Argos Public Library was originally begun by three women, members of what was called the Monday Club.
â€śI think they met on Mondays,â€ť explained current library director Jane Hall.
Hall explained that the three women decided that Argos needed its own library in 1935. A year later, the library opened in a small room near the town clerkâ€™s office. Since this was before taxes funded libraries, the local Boy Scouts went door to door collecting books.
