Victoria Day weekend is here. To a lot of us, this weekend signals the start of summer, the time to pull on the gardening gloves and risk planting our flowers, daring the nights to be frost free.
We start planning our summer holidays and the kids begin to count down the days until the end of school.
Prince Charles public school is a buzz with activities the next two weeks of May. There is a Talent Show this Friday May 15. After 2 auditions, 23 acts were chosen to participate in the talent show.
