Many local towns have decided to extend the summer season, and the list seems to continue to be growing.

There is nothing normal about this summer, so why should it end when it normally does? The answer is in many towns it's not ending this weekend. Each town has different schedules for the extension, so you should check with your town for details.

But this is welcome news for so many locals, and so many local businesses who have suffered through a very difficult summer season. There are a lot of reasons why the extension is good news. Here are a few of them.

We hope the summer extension turns out to be a help on so many levels, and we continue to pull for all local businesses. Let's try to end this summer on the highest note possible.
