If you’re a ‘beach person’, you’ve probably enjoyed the weather over the last two days. I like going to the beach as well – as long as there are trees close by. Access to shade is an important part of any outdoor activity for me. Unlike my brother who could tan at the drop of a hat, I usually spend my summers looking like an overcooked lobster! Nevertheless, summer is finally here so whatever activity you choose to participate in, I hope you enjoy it.
The month of July is almost upon us so I want to remind everyone that our annual 4th of July Craft Fair is coming up next weekend. Hours are 10:00 – 5:00 this coming Saturday and Sunday June 30th and July 1st. If we’re lucky the weather will be fair and you’ll have a great opportunity to stop by the center and look over some of the fine crafts on display. Once again Karen has a wide range of crafters coming. There will be pottery and stained glass, fine jewelry and art, woodcrafts,Adirondack chairs and much more. We hope to see you there.
