The kids are out of school, the sunshine seems never-ending and there’s no shortage of adventures that await. For many, summer evokes fond memories of childhood—sleepaway camp, family vacations and swimming until your fingers shriveled like prunes. We also celebrate our nation’s independence, host parties for our friends and family and, if we’re lucky, take a scenic road trip.

In this issue of Green Valley Lifestyle, we want to remind you why summer is a season of opportunity. This month is also a great opportunity to discover our local music scene at various venues. With so much to see and do this month, we only scratched the surface of what Green Valley has to offer—but we hope this issue gets you off to a good start.

Happy exploring, Green Valley. We hope to see you around!
