May 2020 Enjoy — Adventure Awaits
Adventure Awaits - May 2020
Adventure Awaits – and while some of our adventures have been put on pause for now, a little creativity goes a long way while we’re spending more time at home.
For the past few years, we’ve topped the national charts for our participation in Bike Month. While bike commuting isn’t an option for many of us, you can still take time with your family for some bike-powered errand-running, exercise or fun. Record your numbers and let’s see if we can maintain our status as some of America’s most prolific cyclists.
With social activities and community events on hold, many are struggling with loneliness. While your kids are doing distance learning, consider creating an impromptu art lesson where you each write out an encouraging quote, embellish it with bright colors and pop it into the mail for someone you know could use a pick-me-up. We have collected a handful of inspirational quotes that can give you a head start.
Another way to build our community’s strength is to support our local businesses. The weather is perfect to enjoy a backyard picnic – grab a take-out meal from a local restaurant owned by our friends and neighbors. It’s more important than ever.
For the first time ever, this magazine doesn’t have a calendar in the back. We look forward to bringing that feature back just as soon as our community is able to resume holding the diverse local activities that we enjoy so much.
If there’s one thing we know about the North State, it’s that we are strong, resilient and generous. Please take care of your physical, mental and spiritual health, and practice kindness in all you do. We will get through this together.
