Our 2015 Summer Bucket List

By Laura Bennett

Sweet summertime is almost here and after an incredibly busy first half of the year, we can’t wait to sit back, relax and soak in all that the warm days and sunshine have in store for us during the next few months. Summer is the perfect time to take an adventure, catch up on some reading, get organized or try something new, so we (the Erwin Center marketing department) decided to make a bucket list of things we hope to do before Labor Day in September. Throughout the summer, we’ll share updates on the status of our list so we can see how many we actually accomplish!

Check out our collective 2015 Summer Bucket List, then tell us what’s on yours!
