No argument here…


ph-FAC-artintheplaza-2013Argumentative – definition: fond of arguing and disputing

I will take no argument – if you can possibly make it to the Arts in the Plaza today, please do. It is a free event and there is original work by authors, artists, potters, weavers – well you get the idea!

Today’s event is in conjunction with Strathcona Celebrates so there is lots of activities for everyone. A free pancake breakfast is a great way to start the day. Here’s the link : http://www.strathcona.ca/strathcona-celebrates.aspx
