WOW! The May Calender of Events is packed to say the least! I’m a member of AAA (American Automobile Association) and each month they put out a magazine called Going Places. In it is a calendar of events of happenings in the Atlanta and surrounding areas. There is some pretty interesting things to do, and wanted to share them with you!
