Be Green Love Fest
If you love Jenny V and Mark B, you’re invited to celebrate our love for each other at the Lasqueti Community Hall, Saturday March 18th, 2023. Dress yourself in green (for the heart chakra, for Spring, for luck) and come to the Hall around 4. We’ll circle up at 4:20 ish for an untraditional wedding ceremony.
Rachel is back!! Delicious, fresh, homemade tacos at the old post office. Come get them 3:00 p.m. - 6:00 p.m.
Starting Tuesday March 14th!
