School has started, but that doesn’t summer has ended. We are holding on a bit longer with a few more great events in August. This weekend see some great movies, have a good steak, drop off some tires and give some blood. Not that is a well rounded weekend. The weather seems stubborn and will stay hot in Phelan/Pinon Hills in the mid 90s all weekend and Wrightwood in the Mid 80s. Look out for Thunder storms, it’s that time of the year. Be sure to share your events with us. We would love to hear about them. Enjoy your weekend!
