Editor’s Note

Schools is out, which means summer has officially begun! With more flexible schedules and generally more relaxed moods, there are so many ways to get active and take advantage of the Princeton area now. In our June issue of Princeton Perspectives, Connecting with the Community for a Safe, Joyful Summer, we share with you a variety of ways to do so.

To kick off with ideas of how to connect, we went downtown and asked people what outdoor summer activity they enjoy most. Watch our Pulse of Princeton now to hear what locals are excited for!

And…all that jazz! The rise in outdoor concerts that bring out some of the best local talent is one thing summer months bring. The article When You Want to Hear Jazz, Someone is Playing! examines the history of local jazz and shares some of the talent and locales offering it up in the area.

As you’re traveling there, or really anywhere, it should be safety, first! It is June, so an apropos time for the article, National Safety Month – All You Need to Know. There have been some incidents in the area, so read on to learn ways to ensure you don’t become a local statistic.

If you love music, but jazz isn’t your scene, there is such variety offered in the open-air concert season. For Free or Very Little, Get Outside and Enjoy All That’s Offered shares more about that as well as ideas for the more active amongst us!

It is easy to connect to your community when you take advantage of all the summer season offers, but sometimes you may want a more personal touch. Connecting with elected officials can be an important part of creating community, and If You Have Something to Share, Leighton is Listening. This article shows you how easy it is to connect, personally.

Lastly, in this month’s Perspectives Revisited we revisited two stories about joining communities together! You can read them now.

Though this week is set to bring high heat to the area, there are still so many ways to connect, get outside and enjoy all the Princeton area offers. We hope we help guide you to take advantage and wish you a great start to this wonderful, outdoor season!
