As a family owned and operated company, we here at C&J, truly value time spent together with family members. That is why we have put together a list of Seacoast family events happening this weekend, September 22, 2018. All of these events support local seacoast non-profit organizations and we encourage you to visit one of these events and have a great day with family.
