Now that school’s out and summer has officially arrived, there’s no need to wonder how to fill your time or that of your kids.
Town recreation programs offer children days spent in the company of other kids, making crafts, playing games, visiting nearby sites, and generally having fun. Athletic camps are offered in myriad sports, and summer reading programs at local libraries offer a two-for-one benefit: they’re free, and they encourage reading. Who can think of a more wonderful way to wile away a summer day?
For all ages, town concerts are offered for free in several of our communities. Consider them a good excuse to get out of the house for the evening, away from the canned entertainment on TV or the video games on the computer. Prepare a picnic or pick up some take-out food at your favorite shop, put the lawn chairs and a blanket in the car, grab the mosquito and tick repellant, and head out for some relaxed evening entertainment and a chance to get to know your neighbors a little better. Check out our calendar listings each week and plan to enjoy some fun close to home.
