The first day of summer is HERE! While you might feel inclined to think that summer is the season for kids on school break… we happen to think that sunny days and popsicles are something to cherish at any age! We would like to encourage those aged 50 and over to enjoy summer just as much as you did (if not more so!) than when you were kids. We have included 3 links below to help make memories that shine all year long!
