August 2012 Events

Posted by Your Community Mama at 7:00 AM

Happy August Friends,

I can hardly believe that August is here.  Is it just me or did July fly by?  This summer sure has been fun, busy, hectic, crazy and everything else in between.  As we enter August I know that several of you are preparing your kids to go back to school or to even start school for the very first time.  I hope that before you do send the kids back that you will have an opportunity to get out as a family and have some FUN!  There are several FREE events and other low cost events that I know you will enjoy.  Know of an event that you would like to share?  Please email me at placerplaytime@yahoo.com.  Also, don't forget to check out all of the great events, businesses, non-profits and more in the special tabs above.  There's a lot there for you, so I hope you'll check it out.

Have a fantastic August!

Hugs,

Your Community Mama
