Weekend Roundup with Sara Bozich

Happy Weekend!

I don’t know how it went from being too hot to go outside to I left the windows open one night and haven’t been warm since.

Regardless, I embrace these changes of the seasons (fall is actually next week, so it’s cool, I just don’t like to rush things, I prefer to appreciate each season rather than wish time away), cleaning out my closets, planning for a chill fall and winter, wishing I’d planted some nice root vegetables.


Check out all these great things to do this weekend around Harrisburg. I’ll be taking walks with my kiddo and watching football, cooking a pot roast, and hopefully getting to the market.

Consider for your weekend planning:

  • September is Takeout Month
  • It also is Hunger Action Month, so maybe a donation to match that take-out bill?
  • Donate blood (look for drives near you)
  • Get outside! Explore the Hershey Harrisburg Adventure Trail.
  • September is also National Self-Care Awareness Month. A friend just sent me a big box of sheet masks — how do you do self-care?
  • It’s a good time to make sure you have a fitness plan in place for the fall/winter. Burn30 is celebrating 10 years this month — new members get 10% off their first month of training when they sign up in September.
  • See what else you missed on the blog.

Below are ample options for your weekend, whether you’re laying low (there is no shame in the stay home game!) or venturing out.
