May is an awesome month — especially if you’re a kid. It’s the start of summer break, and pools are open everywhere! As an adult, you have Mother’s Day brunches, Derby Day hats, and Cinco De Mayo happy hours to look forward to. And Memorial Day weekend usually means you’re headed to the mountains, a lake, or the ocean for a 3-day vacay.
May is also an awesome month if you’re a Stepping Stone resident! Here’s a rundown of fun happenings for the next few weeks. Hope to see you around!
