Make Your Summer Funner, River Valley

Happy Summer,

ok maybe it’s not officially summer yet, but school is officially out, so we can start the party!

Awesome Alexis *photo cred me :)
This is our Awesome Alexis

Alexis has worked for you to compile an exhaustive list of everything to do in the River Valley this summer.
I am posting it below & we will continue to work to add to it every week. If you know of any activity left off the list please email me, and I’ll get it added to the list.

We will also shake it up each week with fun giveaways, including season passes to Parrot Island, passes to local museums, and other fun things to do this summer.

If you would like to donate anything to include in these giveaways please contact me. The more the merrier.
