If you’re bored this summer, we’ve got a whole list of things to do to keep the summer fun and interesting!

Smile at a stranger.
Start a running (or walking) program.
Read that book you’ve been meaning to read. The Will Rogers Library has plenty of options!
Call an old friend.
Order a dish at a restaurant that you have never tried before. Even better if it’s a local restaurant!
Pay for someone’s meal out. It’s easy to pay it forward, especially in the drive-thru.
