Almost Spring and Local Events are Starting

Almost being the keyword, Spring is scheduled to start on March 20th. So we are two days away from that and possibly a few more weeks before we get the constant Spring warmth that feels familiar. As you may have guessed the weather seems to be in flux reaching into the 70s before crashing back into the 40s. Right now after this Winter, the 70s really have a good feel to them.

As every spring, The NEACA Spring Craft Show begins Friday and lasts through Sunday at the VBC South Hall. Never know what the vendors will have so go check them out.

Also next weekend on the 29th, will once again be the ACES Family Farm and Fleece Expo at the Alabama A&M Agribition Center on Moores Mill Road. We had a lot of fun last year, so this year we're inviting more people to attend.

Something else to note for the kids, thanks to Amy Jones of Our Valley Events: Williams-Sonoma has junior chef classes for kids regularly. The most recent dates for junior chef are 3/22, 3/29, 4/5, 4/12, and 4/26. They even have technique classes for adults. Here's a list of events.
