Dear Neighbors,

I don’t know about you, but my family and I are
always looking for things to do. Local events are
a huge part of everyday life in Taylor, which is
why we’ve decided to publish this annual events
magazine.
Local events serve as an opportunity for you,
your family and friends to gather and enjoy time
together. Events also provide us with a chance to
meet other families in the community. Whether
that means enjoying the music and fireworks on
a warm summer evening at the Taylor Summer
Festival or sipping on hot cocoa while watching
the Winterfest Parade, Taylor is the place to be
for family entertainment!
I recommend checking out events that you’ve
never attended before to see how much fun can
be found in our community. Don’t miss out!

Mayor Rick Sollars
