The Happening That’s Happening From the IE to the OC in June!
If you are like most of us here at Kessler Alair Insurance you work hard to play hard. For many of us filling our weekends with fun family activities is first priority when we clock out on Friday evening. Summer is here and often has families looking for fun things to do as the days are longer and warmer. Having our offices located in Newport Beach, Rancho Cucamonga and Upland California gives us a wide variety of events to choose from. Of course one of the best things about Southern California is the fact that you can go snowboarding in the morning and sit on the beach to watch the sunset all in the same day.
Whether you are in the Inland Empire or in Orange County and you are looking for a great thing to do this month here are a few ideas:
