It’s officially the dog days of summer.

This week, celebrate the season with the Deutschtown Music Festival, a classic car show, and an ice cream party.

While it’s a good time for revelry, it’s also a good time to stay cool inside and be a part of important conversations about everything from parole to the draft.
