Space is limited.

Sympathy is extended to Lois Caul on the passing of her sister, Marg Weatherbee, as well as to the many other relatives that will miss her.

Marg was a dynamic, feisty lady who lived to enjoy life right up to the age of 92. In fact, she was at Trudy's retirement party just this past fall.

She will be missed by many both here and in Thunder Bay.

Pam Bujold recently had a bad fall and broke her wrist. Our community sends her best wishes for a speedy recovery—and patience to be able to slow down and “do nothing" that you're told not to do (which we all know will be difficult for our very own "Energizer Bunny”).

The next “Country Jam” at the Emo Legion will be held Friday, March 24.

Everyone is welcome to attend.

Robin's 2¢:

I'm not sure where some people learned their “inside voice.”

But I think it's safe to assume it was inside a helicopter surrounded by running chainsaws.
