May we tell you about May?

by Shea Klein

 

May has started off with a bang! The Appomattox Vintage and Artisans Market on May 5th saw over 350 shoppers! The event was not dampened by the grey skies and threat of rain, and I for one enjoyed the breeze! 

Below is just a small list of the things to do for the rest of this month! Check out the Facebook page for other events to be shared daily. Not into crowds? Grab a good book and find a bench at one of the parks! Take a hike or have a picnic. Or just stroll through our beautiful town and take in the flowering trees and beautiful homes.
