My Summer Vacation 2017

It seems unreal to me that today is Labour Day and tomorrow is the first day of school for most of my nieces and nephew. My eldest niece moved to her university dorm last week and has been enjoying lots of fun activities during orientation. What happened to […]

Words on Water Pre-Irish Festival

Recently I accepted the position of Vice President at Words on Water, the Miramichi’s longest running performance art series featuring poetry, prose, spoken word and music.
