by Alice Magdziak • April 1, 2016 • EventsComments (0)1567

There are so many events this week that we couldn’t possibly attend them all! We want to, though!

We’ve been hearing from more and more friends and readers that they’d like to know where we’re going each week so they can join us.  We get invited to events, hear about fun exhibits and are interested in lots of different places all the time.  Here’s what is on our radar this week. We can’t guarantee that we’ll go to all these places but there’s a good chance we’ll be at some of these.  Support local arts or get outside and do something with us.
