Plenty to do this weekend in and around Beacon! The shops we stopped into today are full (Luxe Optique, Zakka Joy, Darryl's Clothing Boutique, Beacon Barkery) though you wouldn't have thought, as the sidewalk was light with walkers. It was because the shoppers were inside. There is so much you will find in Beacon. Tag us during your adventures!

Antalek & Moore Antalek & Moore Insurance Agency has a special reminder for you regarding kid and bus safety now that school has started: "Share the road with school buses. We know the first few days take a little longer to get the kids loaded but be patient! Who doesn't love a good first day back to school picture with their kids waving from the bus? According to the National Safety Council, the most dangerous area for children is within 10 feet of their bus. Give them space to load and unload. This is especially true in the first few weeks of school as kids are excited and getting used to this year's routine."
