how to celebrate

Comments 2 by Rebecca Bollwitt
So it’s our nation’s 139th birthday on Saturday – what are you doing to celebrate? I think our main focus this weekend (as it was last weekend and will be going forward) is beach. Not just beach, walks through the park to get to the beach, sunshine, food, slurpees, hanging out and enjoying the city. If you need any suggestions on organized events here are a couple:
