The month of June is a whirlwind of activity! School is drawing to a close for the year, extracurricular activities are winding down and that means recitals, parties and farewells are in order, not to mention Graduation excitement! But, all this means is summer is just around the corner, the Millarville Farmer's Market starts up, local golf courses get busy, the boys of summer are back, festival season begins, and I daresay it may even be safe to put your bedding plants out here in the Foothills.
