Spring is just around the corner !

Terri Reid ‘70 grad ( on the left ) and her friend Kim were looking for fun things to do in Martintown. They mixed up food colouring and water and painted  flowers in the snow in front of the Martintown Historic Mill. Let’s hope their paintings bring spring a little more quickly.
