As the weather stays mild, get out and enjoy late summer: LaVonne Ackerman

Posted

Happy last full week of summer coming up. 

Yes. Fall is upon us. Mark your calendars for Friday, Sept. 22. Autumn begins. September is just about half over. The regular routine of attending school and doing homework has hopefully set in. We look back and ask ourselves, where did the summer go? 

Hopefully we have a few more weeks of mild weather to do some things we may have missed out on doing in June, July and August. 

Many of us like the cooler temperatures and really enjoy this beautiful time of year. If you know of any good bike trails, please share! If you see beautiful foliage, please share! Do you have a fun fall activity or place you like to go? Please share!

Have a wonderful week.
