The final week of summer is upon us - and what a fine summer it has been.   There's still time to get out there and hit the beaches, visit Frog Pond, or gobble up the last of the sweet, delicious corn from the farmstands.  However, next week it will be September - time to get ready for the first day of school: new backpacks, new school supplies, and the early morning rush.... Are ya ready?
