A sure sign of spring is when the ‘telemarketers’ crawl out of the woodwork and start pestering us all with phone calls. The favorites so far are a computer virus, credit card interest or late payments and persons impersonating the Income Tax bureau claiming that you owe the government money. They can be quite nasty. Be sure to hang up on these people.
Another sure sign of spring is the arrival of the Geese, a Robin or two and perhaps even a gopher. Enjoy the Easter holidays with family and friends.
Halkirk Hall board regular bingo is on March 29th at 7:30 p.m.
