 Put some ZING into your spring! This week provides opportunities to spruce up your home, your wardrobe, and even your travel plansPut some ZING into your spring! This week provides opportunities to spruce up your home, your wardrobe and even your travel plans.

On Friday (the 13th, but we're not superstitious!), you can dream big by attending a Travel Adventure Presentation about sailing the South Pacific & Caribbean. There will be talks and slides, displays, dessert and coffee, and even a silent auction. Proceeds go to the Likulezi Community Care Project in Malawi. The event gets underway at 6:30pm at the Almonte United Church. Tickets are only $10 ($7 students, under 10 free) at Vamos and Baker Bob's, or $12 at door.

All weekend long, you can drop in to the Home & Fashion Show over in Carleton Place, where you'll be sure to find what you need to spruce things up for the season. The show runs on Friday from 6-9pm, on Saturday from 9-6, and on Sunday from 10-4. Admissions to the lower hall is just $3 (12 and under get in free), and includes live music by the Bowes Brothers, Wade Foster and more. Another $2 gets you into the upper hall to catch the women's wear fashion show and brial show.

On Saturday, April 14 from 9-1 at the Almonte Civitan Hall it's out with the old and in with the new (to you) at the Cooperative Nursery School of Almonte's annual Mom to Mom Sale. You'll find clothes, toys, books, movies and more for babies and kids at garage sale prices. There will also be a bake sale, as well as creative craft and gift ideas. Strollers are welcome after 10am. Admission is only $2, and proceeds go to the Cooperative Nursery School of Almonte.
