The Fourth in the Finger Lakes!

Jane Morgan's Little House in Aurora

Summer in the Finger Lakes means pleasant summer nights spent on the patio and deck. It can also mean day trips exploring the countryside and discovering lesser-known places. Projects around the house and yard become activities filled with anticipation and satisfaction. A holiday weekend is upon us, and we are so lucky to be able to participate in many activities in this region. Our advertisers have great information about products and services they offer, to help make your next week a pleasant and productive one. Make the most of it, and enjoy your Fourth of July celebration!
