June 2015 Newsletter
We have some great events planned for the month of June to kick your summer off right, especially for the brave residents that’ll be staying with us while they go to summer school! For those who are going home or on vacation, we wish you safe travels! If you are leaving for the summer, be sure to stop by the office and let us know so we are aware who will be around.
If you lose power, check your fuse box. It could be as simple as resetting a breaker that has tripped.

Summer Like a Local
Whether you are going home or staying put for the summer, take advantage of all our community has to offer! Summers can be a great chance to enjoy the area in some new and different ways. With the hectic pace of school, many students miss out on the opportunities to get involved and have fun in their local community during the academic year — it’s time to change that! From festivals to parks and local attractions, below are some ways you can summer like a local. As a bonus, most of them are either free or very affordable!
- Do something touristy
- Visit a farmers market
- Check out a local sporting event
- Visit your Chamber of Commerce website to find out about local attractions
- Find a calendar of nearby fairs and festivals
- Enjoy Fourth of July festivities and fireworks
- Hike or bike a nearby trail
- Volunteer with a local organization
- Have a picnic
- Go to an outdoor movie or concert
- Run or walk a local 5K
We’ll also be planning events and activities for you throughout the summer, and if you need ideas for other fun things to do in the area, please let us know. We have information on area resources and a local calendar of events on hand to give you plenty of options. Have a memorable and fun summer!
