Hot Off the Presses
Getting Your Body Beach Ready For the Summer
Enjoy a Weekend's Worth of Fun with Friends & Family
Memorial Day weekend is supposed to be the unofficial start to summer.  This year Mother Nature had us in sweatshirts rather than swimsuits.  We were luckier than those in upstate New York and Vermont who got close to 3 feet of snow.  Killington offered free skiing over the long weekend.  But real summer weather will be arriving this week. As we embark on these sunny days equipped with sunscreen, beach towels, and the seasonally appropriate white wardrobe...Is your body ready to step onto the beach or go poolside?
