It is hard to believe we are already halfway through February.
As you may have already heard Wiarton Willie predicted an early spring and I can’t wait to enjoy warmer weather. My barista skills continue to improve, just don’t ask Tam who still thinks my creative designs need some improvement.
Did you know that Family Day was first introduced in Alberta in 1990, and has since grown into a beloved holiday occurring on the third Monday in February?
While Family Day might look a little different this year, it is rooted in the value of family and fortunately, there are many ways to spend time with our loved ones and celebrate our family units.
I included a few ideas of some activities you can do with your family this year at the end of this newsletter.
No matter how you spend it, I hope you have a wonderful Family Day this year and a chance to celebrate your loved ones!
And don’t forget to stay in touch with your family and friends, even if it is through zoom calls and make sure you show your love and appreciation.

A Real Estate Company that Gives Back
This year we have decided to support three magnificent organizations that are near and dear to our hearts, Special Olympics and the Georgian Triangle Humane Society (GTHS) and The Living Wish Foundation.
We proudly donate a portion of our income from real estate sales to all three of these organizations.
As you probably know, Special Olympics has impacted the lives of its athletes in profound ways, most notably in building self confidence, friendships and self-esteem.
The GTHS is a non-profit charity that operates an animal center serving the South Georgian Bay region by providing shelter for homeless animals and adopting them to caring families.
The Living Wish Foundation is devoted to making the world a better place helping terminally ill patients re-frame hope and realize their dreams.
And remember… Your Referrals Help Continue the Life Changing Work by Special Olympics, The GTHS and The Living Wish Foundation!
This is where you come in… If you or anyone you know is considering making a move, we would like to offer a FREE No Obligation to Sell Consultation.
Simply call me direct at 705-441-5800 or forward my number on.
