Ever notice how once Labor Day weekend hits, everything turns into a new season? It’s as if summer shifts to fall the moment you realize it’s September. You change out the tank tops and shorts for jeans and layered sweaters. You go from rooting for the baseball team to cheering for the football team. And your weekend hiking adventures become fall color excursions.
But don’t mourn the end of summer – get excited about the new beginnings of the autumn season! And Stepping Stone residents have a lot to look forward to this month:
