I have been helping at the Event Center in May with all of the events we had. Whew! I’m tired! So it looks like I might get a little bit of a break in June as we don’t have any June events at the Event Center. Of course, that doesn’t mean we don’t have a lot going on, including special events, in June. They’re just not at the Event Center.
Special June Events
