Spring has officially sprung …so it’s time to think about shaking off that winter hibernation. The Main Line and surrounding areas come alive with events that will get you out and about and loving local!
If you want to pay it forward — Consider volunteering some time at a local animal shelter or even becoming a 4-legged foster parent; use your experience to be a Mentor to high school or college students; check in with your church for Seniors who may be home bound and in need of companionship — not only will you be contributing to the community, but it can enrich your heart and soul as well!
In the meantime, check out some of these fun events happening on and around the Main Line and let us know what you think! If you have any event you’d like us to share with our Visitors, send it to email@example.com. We’ll keep adding, so check back often – Enjoy! Click on event name for more details.
