I made a mistake on the Bywords Calendar. Rhonda's on this Thursday to talk about the upcoming Tree Gala. sorry about leading you astray. I'll have to had the events missing though I have no idea where the Farley Mowat one is...Indigo? What's that?

Thanks for the update per above schedule. I revised the date.

Indigo is Heather's newest flagship store in Barrhaven. Incidentally, they sell books among other superfluous chochkies.
