Summer officially started on Sunday and I couldn’t be more thrilled! I’m sure most of you are, too.
While COVID-19 numbers are dropping and restrictions are easing, it’s good to think that life will start to become more normal again. No one knows how long it will be until COVID-19 goes away completely, if it ever does, but hopefully that day will come soon.
In the meantime, I hope that this summer will be one of the best and most memorable of your life. Use good judgement to avoid COVID, but for as much as you can safely have fun, please do. Go swimming, sit around the fire and make smores, enjoy time with your family and friends, listen to the Beach Boys, laugh, and have fun.
After this last year and a half, we all need some carefree days.
Montgomery Events and Announcements
