As the weather continues to warm up – and we feel the familiar draw of summer just around the corner – our communities are opening up once more.
Last summer, many of our beloved summer traditions were canceled or postponed, and then canceled. I think it’s safe to say a valuable lesson emerged from the safety of isolation in Summer 2020: Sometimes, you don’t know what you’ll miss until it’s gone.
Now, the opportunities to take part in our thriving, local communities are back – and we should all vow not to take it for granted!
This month there are a lot of exciting events happening, all following safety protocols put forth by governing agencies, which continue to be ever-evolving. As we embark on the journey of transitioning back to what is familiar (and what makes our local communities great!) I recommend keeping these upcoming events in mind as you continue to support local.
Running now through late October, the Clarendon Hills Farmer’s Market is open every Thursday from 7 am – 1 pm. We have a new location on the Village Hall lawn (1 S. Prospect Ave), which helps in facilitating COVID-19 safety precautions. This is a great way to support our local businesses and get delicious food for your home!
The Mike McCurry Group is excited to sponsor the Farmer’s Market on Thursday, June 10th
. We promise you won’t want to miss the event, as there are fun surprises in store! Our community thrives off of local support and participation, so we appreciate everyone who attends and plays a role in making this Farmer’s Market a success.
Looking for something fun, free, and socially distanced to enjoy with family and friends? Join “Lunch on the Lawn” at Burlington Park in Hinsdale on Wednesday, June 16th from 12:30 pm – 1:15 pm. Bring your picnic blanket, pack a lunch, and get ready for a fun performance! This event will feature Super Stolie Music Show, entertainment that’s sure to be a hit for everyone.
Lunch on the Lawn is a great way to break up the week and get everyone outdoors for some fresh air. This is a monthly series, with additional events hosted in July and August. Keep this in mind as you are planning summer activities for your family!
We are so excited that Dancin’ in the Street is back this July! This highly anticipated, family-friendly event is a great way to enjoy summer evenings with your family and community. The first concert is Wednesday, July 7th on Prospect Avenue with food and beverage tents opening at 6:30 pm, and music starting at 7:00 pm. Bring your lawn chairs and blankets and get ready for a relaxing evening!
The Mike McCurry Group is proud to serve as a sponsor again this year, so be sure to find us and say hello while you’re enjoying the music. We are thankful to see our community continue to adapt and thrive during these unusual times, and it is exciting to get back to a beloved favorite like Dancin’ in the Street!
While we anticipate summer 2021 will still look a little different than “normal” summers of the past, we are thankful that our community is working together to re-introduce activities in a safe and responsible way. Thank you for your continued support of our local businesses and communities, and we hope you enjoy everything this summer has to offer!
