Memorial Day Weekend and Beyond!

Hi folks!  Here is your list for some Memorial Weekend activities and beyond!  I hope everyone finds something to make their week more memorable, to connect with friends or family, or expand their horizons a bit!

As always, if there is an event you know about this week that I have missed, please feel free to comment with the information so that all may enjoy!  If you have an upcoming event, please send me the details and I’ll make sure to add it to my upcoming datasheet.

Word to the wise, I will be out of town over the end of May and beginning of June. I plan on scheduling a post ahead of time for the events for June 1 – 8. However, if there is a technical glitch and it doesn’t work, I’m going to be off the grid and won’t be able to fix it. But hopefully all will go according to plan!

On to the fun!
