This Friday will see the return of Final Friday for the month of June.

Also from 5 to 7 p.m., Flowers by Irene will be having a summer theme with spiked watermelon lemonade and s'mores.
The 2nd Ave Art Guild will be showcasing artwork from Phil Gonzales of New Mexico.
"I never had any formal training in art, although I had some random art classes here and there," Gonzales said in an email. "In my early years I primarily painted portraits.
"My primary interest in painting then was to make money since I was young and my children were still small. I had a fairly lucrative business for several years painting portraits in my home town of Albuquerque, New Mexico.
"Each portrait would sell another and another, and this kept me very busy since I also had a full time job.
"I love art, any kind of art.
"I am grateful to the Second Avenue Art Guild for the opportunity to display some of the art I've painted in the last 2 or 2 years."
Gonzales, 68, has been painting since 1973 and is an alumni of Eastern New Mexico University of Portales, New Mexico.
Also, according to Jennifer Nolan of Second Avenue Art Guild, for the first time for Final Friday, people will be randomly decorating rocks and hiding them around Dodge City for others to find and brighten their day.
"I did not start it but I did have my ceramics class at DCCC participate," Nolan said. "We made ceramic rocks with encouraging phrases on them. They will be hidden along the Final Friday locations outside where anyone is welcome to pick them up, re-hide them for someone else to find, or keep one and be inspired to make and hide their own.
"They won’t be hidden until Friday afternoon, so there will plenty to find when the festivities begin."
The Home of Stone Museum will be hosting "Snapshots of the Past" from 6 to 8 p.m.
The snapshots will be a collection of early 1900's-1970's Dodge City, Kansas postcards.
"Snapshots of the Past" is a free event with freewill donations accepted.
