The Week Ahead: Friday, September 2 through Thursday, September 8, 2016
September 2, 2016
Welcome to the first week of September. The month started with a day of much needed rain creating a let’s-kick-back atmosphere that I think we all appreciated. Next up is a long and fun-filled Labor Day weekend followed by school reopening and a much deserved break for some Island businesses. But that doesn’t mean the Island lacks for activities! Check out the Week Ahead and enjoy the Monday holiday!
