DCL Weekly: Community Calendar of Events Featured

Here’s wishing all our Druid City Living readers a great week, filled with all kinds of outstanding local events. Get out, get involved, and above all else: Have fun.  This week’s calendar is decidedly thinner than usual – but with game week upon us (Roll Tide!) and Labor Day coming this weekend, that’s to be expected. For those of you traveling to see the big Bama vs. Florida State game on Saturday, be safe and cheer loudly!
