Well, what a winter we had with record-breaking snowfall. Many of us shovelled more snow than we thought possible on Salt Spring and trudged our way into town with a unified wish for warmer days. Or was that just me? Lucky for us, April is here and we’re in for a real treat this month with a stellar line up of Salt Spring’s celebrated visual artists, Canadian-made comedy, world-renowned choral music and much more. With a slight twinkle of snow or sunshine, the show will go on.
