Great Localism posts highlighting all these events. I am certainly a pool fan myself because it does get hoot here in Texas in the summer!

Leesa, a wealth of information...and a sure sign of summer when the community pool opens for the season. Memorial day kicks it off for the mountains as well. Your posts are a great way to keep up on all the local activities in Wake Forest.
