Finally, bike riding weather is here! Get your bike out give, get it tuned and make sure you read the article contributed by Holly from Kamikaze because there is a lot of good information that you need to know and pass on to your kids.
It’s Girl Guide Cookie Time! Mark your calendar for Saturday April 25th because from 10am to 4pm the Girl Guides will be selling their cookies in the Thornbury Post Office Parking Lot.
They have a unique drive through stand so you don’t even have to get out of your car. If you’re more athletic, you can make an event of it by taking the kids on their bikes on the Georgian Trail which hits Thornbury just south of Highway 26 and then you can munch on the cookies when you stop for breaks on your way home.
If you’re itching to hit the green why not sign up a foursome for the Fay Day 2nd Annual Golf Tournament on Friday, May 8th at the Atoka Golf Club at Cranberry Resort. The cost is $100 per golfer and the price includes a cart, prizes and dinner at Boston Pizza. If you are not a golfer and want to join in on the fun you can just come out for the dinner for only $25. The best part is that all proceeds are going to support the Georgian Bay Animal Rescue. Call 705.443.8776 for more information or drop by Boston Pizza to pick up a registration form.
Springlicious is here again in the Village At Blue. Get up to the Village at Blue and arouse your senses with the annual spring Shop and Savour experience! This annual event showcases boutiques and shops in Ontario’s favourite pedestrian Village accompanied by sensationally priced menus at 12 incredible restaurants.
Now that the snow has melted you might find yourself walking around your property and making a list of home improvement projects large and small. Whether you plan on improving your deck, or building a new deck in time for the May 24th long weekend or perhaps you need to replace a window or two you might want to check out the ReStore located on Sanford Flemming Drive, 705.446.9740. They have an amazing variety of home improvement products and supplies at incredible prices. It’s worth it to check it out because you might find that you can get two projects done for the price of one. The best part is that proceeds from the store go towards supporting our local chapter of Habitat for Humanity. The more stuff they sell, the more houses can be built. This is a major win win.
If the gardening bug has hit you check out our Garden and Landscape section for a listing of resources. Whether its spring clean up that you need help with or are looking for lawn care services you will find all the contact information at your mouse click. Personally, I recommend Ladly’s Lawn Care and you can contact Eric at 705.606.1793. He gives excellent customer service, is very professional and reliable and does a great job. Plus he’s a really nice guy. While we’re on the subject of lawn care, you might consider ordering a rain barrel from the Environment Network Shoppe and use that water for your garden or lawn. Did you know that when you water your lawn with the garden hose the sewage charge on your utility bill goes up?
