For the past few days, the Southern Tier has been under an Air Quality Alert but it looks like it might clear up by this weekend. We are all going to want to go outside and enjoy some fresh, clean air.

If your looking for something to do outside, then I have the perfect suggestion because Saturday, June 10th is "Get Outdoors & Get Together" Day in New York. Parks throughout New York will be having free events to help bring people together with nature and provide fun, healthy activities.
