It felt like a quick summer in Swarthmore this year: children dashing past the office with the first of the Baskin Robbins ice cream cones, the 4th of July decorations going up and the magnificent parade, the return of the Farmers Market, Co-op cookouts, First Fridays, the Puppet Festival.
Suddenly this week the 4th of July flair disappeared from downtown. The blooms in the big planters are beginning to fade. The evenings are cooler. It’s hard to say good-bye to summer but we have so much to look forward to this fall!
