Hughesville Locals Aug. 15, 2018

By Staff | Aug 15, 2018

I would like to propose that we add an extra 2 weeks to the beginning of August. We could make up some of those 31sts of December, January, and March, and maybe shave some time off of the February doldrums, too. I am just not ready for summer to end. Who do you suppose I should talk to about this? Is there an official Office of the Calendar? Perhaps a Ministry of Time Management?

If none of that works, we will have to accept that August is halfway done and for those who follow a school calendar, the final week of summer break is here. College students, also, are preparing for the start of their classes, so by the time Labor Day rolls around they will all have had several days of classes, practices, and catching up with friends. Let’s hope we can enjoy some good weather all the rest of this month.
