Happy Winterama !
What a great weekend so far.  The town is a buzz from one end to the other, plenty of smiling faces, restaurants full, children’s laughter, family fun and good times abound.  And there is still plenty more to do today including sledding down Owen Street, which I plan to do this morning at eleven !

Good morning, Bonjour
