Ah, July – one of my favorite months. I love summer. I love the 4th of July festivities. I love the warm air. I love beach days. I love Sunday Fundays on the lake. I love dining outside. I love community festivals. I love Hartland Kids Day.

We asked on FACEBOOK {in 2021} what some of your favorite events of the month were, and loved reading the responses. Please continue the conversation THERE or tell us in the comments below what you love about this month.

Experience the daily lives of the people who called these buildings home as you meet the farm animals, help with chores and cooking, try your hand at crafts and trades, and play – yes, even the grownups!
