    Shoreline Social Report: August 19 – August 23

    local events

    We’re in the last few weeks of summer, but there’s still plenty of fun to be had! Schedule a babysitter if you’re comfortable and enjoy a little adult fun with dinner and drinks out before distance, hybrid, full school, home school, etc. begins. I’m personally eyeing up the Adult Corn Maze!
