This week has delivered a delightfully dynamic mid-spring set of weather, and our April showers will help our landscapers and farmers get a good start on the season.

Our Business After Hours event last week at Community Living Brant was a great review of this important community service, and all of the interesting and community building work they do. We are looking forward to May 9th at Misty’s Kitchens!
