If you’re new to the area, or are thinking of joining our fantastic community, visit our blog each week to find out about events taking place nearby. This weekend, you can celebrate Father’s Day by taking Dad to a concert, an arts festival, or help him learn how to construct a bison from scratch! (Read on to learn more about that one!)
