You’ll never know until you try! That was our motto over the summer of 2021. With pandemic restrictions still in place, we found new ways to bring the community together. With fun outdoor movie nights, Music at the Market, and reimagined versions of our annual Cruising on King and Kidspark events, it truly was a ‘Summer Like No Other’. Thanks to everyone who helped to make it memorable! Check out the video to see the highlights.
