Have you had a chance to visit the boutique 'Style Revival". Style Revival offers high quality, gently used clothes for men, women and children. The "Style Revival" boutique looks and feels like a small store in a larger centre, but the difference is that the clothes and accessories are free. Kielo Carlson who runs the boutique vets all the clothes herself to ensure quality. Shopping hours are every Wednesday and Thursday from 10 to 1 pm in the basement of Verona Free Methodist Church. Kielo will also start opening every other Saturday to accommodate shoppers who work during the week. The boutique will be open this Saturday, June 21 from 9 am to 1 pm.

Debbie Twiddy sends us this update, "George Reynolds and his buddies Logan Murray and Mark provided a fantastic concert June 7 in BellRock. George's guitar playing was excellent. Some very intricate finger-picking accompanied his resonant voice, as he played songs from nearly every category and era. Logan provided a solid 45 minutes of original songs--witty, musical, and lively blues tunes. The small but enthusiastic audience is looking forward to hearing them come again."
