Spring is here — probably

Dare I say spring is here? Seems like we had it every second day last week.

It’s the end of the month… we are almost officially through a quarter of 2012. Dare I say spring is here? Seems like we had it every second day last week and by this time next week we’ll be into April shower mode. I bought some bulbs for some reason last week — if you know me very well, that’s quite confusing. Gardening is definitely not my forte but I must be optimistic about something. Wish me and my gladioli well!

Early April brings Easter this year. Please make note that in order for our staff to enjoy the holiday, our office will be closed on Friday, April 6 and the display advertising deadline for the April 11 paper will be at 3 p.m. on Thursday, April 5. We will be open as usual on Easter Monday, April 9 for our classified deadline at 10:30 a.m.

Also coming up in April is something really fun… The Cheesecake Burlesque Revue is returning to Invermere. Boy did we laugh last year during the workshop these wonderful women put on! It was one of those events that you had to be at in order to understand, so I hope all you ladies that missed out last year will get registered so you don’t miss it again. This is one of the most liberating and enjoyable workshops you will ever attend. There is no age limit on who will get a kick (almost literally) out of this event.

Is Windermere Valley Golf Course open? Well, when I last spoke to Dale he said tomorrow (Thursday, March 29) was going to be the day. I know that all depends on the weather, but what I saw over the weekend was all helpful so I’d suggest giving them a call to see if you can be one of the first on the course this season. I know the other courses in the valley won’t be far behind.

Personally I’d like it to warm up a wee bit in order to make the game a little more enjoyable, but I know there are die-hards among you that will say, put your gloves and coat on and get out there. Enjoy your game!
