Beating the Summer Heat

Seems like we went directly from winter into summer – skipping spring altogether this year.  For many of us – turning on the A/C cuts the the high temperatures and humidity, but what did people do in the early 1900s to escape the heat?

Go Boating!


Grab some friends and go on a hayride!

Try your luck fishing.

Head to the lake or pool!


Hang out by yourself or with family, friends, coworkers …


Just try to keep cool!
