Providence Bay News & Notes

Marley Neill has returned from her trip out to British Columbia where she visited her Mom Anna Neill and partner Dave. While there she visited Vancouver, Whistler, Vernon, Abbotsford and many other places. They attended a concert by Tim Hicks, Chad Brownlee and Jojo Manson. They also enjoyed a special girl’s day at the spa and rode the Gondola in Squamish and walked across a suspension bridge. Brave girls. They also took a drive through the Canadian Rockies, a 1,200 km trip!

Well it looks like we had our mid January thaw. The mild temperatures coupled with dreary, cloud covered days had many people experiencing the winter blues. We’re sure glad to see that the colder temperatures brought back the sun and the forecast is calling for more snow so we can get outside and enjoy our Canadian winter again.

Condolences go out to Kat and Bob Jones on the passing of Bob’s father.
