PERU - There will be a hometown celebration for Peru Olympian Sophie Caldwell on Wednesday, March 19, beginning at 3:45 p.m. at town center.

Students will meet at the Peru Town Office and follow the fire truck down the street to JJ Hapgood store for a reception to honor Caldwell - who had the best U.S. finish ever by a female athlete in the women's cross-country sprint final at the Sochi Olym pics. There will be homemade posters, cowbells and some homemade finger food.
