Stay cool! Rocky Point Weekend Rundown!

Hellloooo August! Yes, you, with your sultry embrace and humidity ridden dribbles of moisture running down my back. August.  Local schools will start up again about mid-month, and families are hitting area beaches before class is back in session. Looking for what to do this weekend? Well, keep cool with live music – maybe in A/C or perhaps a pool beckons. Let’s run down the weekend and take a look ahead.

Baseball?

Thanks to the Tiburones for a fun-filled season, and gratitude to all the fans. Tiburones held their final 2018 game on July 26th .  Gracias!

Giving back

There’s still time before school starts! Planning a trip to Rocky Point and wanting to give back to the community? Here are some ideas: AIM School Supply drive  (drop off spots at Satisfied Frog, Hacienda del Sol furniture store, Las Conchas office) or how about new/lightly used school items for the Club Ecologico school packets (please contact info@rockypoint360.com) GRACIAS!
