June means strawberries! 🍓 The Annual Strawberry Festival from the Beacon Sloop Club is this Sunday. It will be a nice way to relax and take it easy after buying (or selling) at the Beacon Yard Sale on Saturday.
This will be a good weekend to be out in the community. Say "Hello!" to your neighbors and enjoy some dry weather!
Going to art gallery openings will be easy this weekend also as it is Second Saturday in Beacon! Discover new artwork, artists and thoughts. Visit A Little Beacon Blog's Second Saturday Guide now to get your map of every gallery opening in Beacon!
