Community Events for the Weekend of May 28-31

MEMORIAL DAY WEEKEND is “code” for the opening of pools, yard sales galore, the beginning of farmer’s markets, and a full calendar of concerts.  We could fill an entire blog calendar (blogendar?) with things that are happening this weekend in the Southern Indiana, Greater Louisville, and Elizabethtown areas.  We won’t attempt to do that, but we will highlight a few events that may cure your cabin fever.
