Summertime in the Village  

"June... the time of perfect young summer, the fulfillment of the promise of earlier months, no sign to remind us its fresh young beauty will ever fade."
This quote, by British garden designer Gertrude Jekyll (1843-1932) captures perfectly my sentiments of the season -- and this period in our Village. So much has brought us here, there is so much ahead, everything to accomplish -- and we have all summer to do it! i invite you to read on for details on Summer Camp, Summer education at Thalatta Estate, and details on our first-ever Independence Day Celebration. Enjoy this time. And please remember to drive with caution -- school's out. (Photo above: Students celebrate last day of class at Coral Reef Park.)
