Welcome to summer! Though the summer equinox is officially next month, society’s start to summer is usually considered to be Memorial Day weekend. As we gear up for the hot months ahead, it is still important to take a few minutes to start thinking about health & safety during your summertime activities. Our Spring into Health! health fair tomorrow (Saturday, May 13) aims to start this conversation with different local organizations providing everything from free bike helmets to recommendations from the local farmer’s market. Read on to learn more!
