Marian's Notes: Due to circumstances beyond our control, we are swapping contests.  Instead of our Win a LunchBox stuffed with school supplies and goodies, our next contest will be to win tickets to Gilroy Gardens.  The contest begins next week.  I will send an email.

 

Lots of summer fun notes this week so fewer events.  But check the Facebook page and Twitter stream for more family fun this week.
