Hi Everyone!


Welcome to the October issue of lemonade! As the days get shorter we reluctantly look toward indoor activities. Luckily there are plenty of offerings this month including great music and gourmet cooking. So without further ado, here are some fun things to do. For more local good news and event updates, please "like" Windlass Creative on Facebook-- thanks!
