Midsummer Nights (and Days)

And just like that summer begins its exit. Children are back to school, evenings are cooler, and Labor Day is just around the corner. August at Talking Rock is one of our favorite months with a wide variety of events and celebrations that exemplify everything we strive to provide our members- outdoor activities, culinary adventures, educational opportunities and general community goodwill. We look forward to seeing you!
