I apologize, I suddenly decided to attend a family gathering over Easter, and was unable to send out the weekly update last week. I trust you all got out and joined the Easter bunnies in all the egg hunts that were going on.

As a result of my absence there are also a lot of new events this week. Those, and this weeks events, are listed below. If you need more details, head over to our website for the event posters, or contact the organizers directly.

Events posters are on our website (www. as well as in photo albums on our facebook page. Please share this and ask others to subscribe.
