lemonade... good news from newport  

february 2012

SallyAnne Santos
Welcome to the February 2012 issue of lemonade. For summer-lovers like me, things are looking up-- the days are getting longer and the weather (fingers crossed) has (so far) been pretty mild enabling lots of outdoor activities-- even if they're not snow and ice-related. I hope that some of the ideas, events and activities below will chase away your winter blues this month. And here's a happy thought, the vernal equinox (first day of Spring) is just 49 days away! In the meantime... 

Happy Groundhog, Valentine, Presidents & Mardi Gras Days!
