|It’s so exciting to see signs of Spring everywhere. Flowers popping up, birds building nests and kids riding around on their bikes, to name just a few. A hike through the forest will show many signs of spring like Ramps, wild baby leeks and the berry bushes are starting to wake up and bud. Spring always seems like a time to start fresh and spend more time outside. A great time to do a detox and get your body in gear for increased outdoor activity.|
Dry your clothes outside on the line for that wonderful fresh smell. Air out those feather duvets, give them a good shake and let them sit out in the sun for a few hours.
Spring is always the beginning of construction projects small or large.
Scott Carter from the Stuffed Peasant is just one of many business owners that are looking forward to support during the construction. There are still lots of places available to park for free and the access to the free parking lots is just one block away on either Pine or Ste. Marie Streets.
The new library is open for business! There is a fabulous view from the roof top and there are two great exhibits to see, the Juried Art Show and the Prime Minister’s Project.

Marie Street and Simcoe Street and say hi to the staff and congratulate them on this new exciting venue and take a tour of this fabulous new space that is open for everyone to enjoy. Makes for a great outing with the kids.
