It feels like sum­mer to­day, the warm­est day we’ve had so far this year, but rain is in the fore­cast. We could use a few show­ers, just to wash the win­ter dust from the trees and en­cour­age the spring flow­ers to come out of hid­ing.

At­ten­tion: Par­ents with chil­dren who would like to attend sum­mer camp this year - the Delia United Church is of­fer­ing to pay half of the camp­ing fee for a lim­ited num­ber of campers who attend Bar Har­bour Camp this sum­mer. For more in­for­ma­tion or for camp ap­pli­ca­tion forms, con­tact Eleanor Fair at 403 364 2521, or pick up forms at the school.

Just a note from Com­mu­ni­ties in Bloom: when you are plan­ning your flower dis­plays for the sum­mer, don’t for­get we are cel­e­brat­ing Canada’s 150th birth­day. Stay tuned for Her­itage themed events in our com­mu­nity.

This is the sec­ond year they have held a mul­ti­cul­tural fes­ti­val, but this was the first time it was school-wide.

“The first time we did it, it was very small it was part of our Con­nec­tions lead­er­ship project, and was just in a class­room,” she ex­plains.

The in­spi­ra­tion for the fes­ti­val comes from her life ex­pe­ri­ence.

“As a child, I moved around a lot and have ex­plored a lot of at 10 in the forenoon. Drop in for cof­fee and stay for the meet­ing. The potluck lunch is on Thurs­day the 18th, at 12 noon sharp.

Games night is on the last Thurs­day of the month with crib or other card games, lots of fun and re­fresh­ments, ad­mis­sion is a toonie.
