Summer Is Nearly Here

As the warm weather rolls in and the end of school approaches (20 more days woo!), everyone’s starting to wonder what they should do over the hot summer days.  I’m here to give you some fun ideas!

Well, if you want to be responsible and have some extra cash to do some of these activities, picking up a summer job never hurts. A lot of students here at Foran work at the summer recreation camps and get to spend hours out in the sun playing games with kids. It’s funnier than it sounds. Trust me! A current employee, Drew Lenz, says, “The kids are the best! I love getting up every morning and spending my summer days with them.”  Others get jobs at ice cream shops like Scoopy Doos and The Sundae House. There are a lot of opportunities so get out there and make some money to spend on summer fun!

Now on to the obligation-free summer ideas. We’re so lucky to live in a place surrounded by fun beach spots. You should all plan a trip to Misquamicut, East Beach, or Block Island. They’re easy day trips that pack a lot of fun. Avid beach goer, Jacqueline Fernous says “I love beach days with my friends, Block Island this past summer was so much fun!”  I definitely recommend planning a trip. It’ll be worth it! We also live in a town filled with awesome beaches so try not to spend every day inside watching Netflix and go get a great tan.
