Events, events, events!

Taming of the Shrew, Artisans at Work Christmas Craft Shows, Hirut Hoot, LEN Holiday Launch, Colour Creative, Childcare Summit and Budget Consultation…

Last night’s DECA AGM/Cocktail party was so much fun!  Were you there?  Many of you were and wow, what a spectacular time we had at Hirut Restaurant this year.  I continue to be amazed at the warmth and generosity of our local businesses.  We’ll send out an official recap with the 2014 Board announcement and all of that (and a rare photo taken of the entire Board!), but in the meantime, here is a smattering of events and info for the next little while.  Please take a minute to read through, and remember… forward this to a friend!
