Weekly round up: May 16 - 22


Around the Sound fire (Sadly, this week Around the Sound, the store my sister managed with the owner, was the victim of a fire. Their unit did not have fire damage, but sustained water and smoke damage from being below the bulk of the fire. Much of their food product stock was damaged along with my sister's music books. It is still unclear as to whether they will be able to reopen. I certainly hope they can. I know my sister is grateful for all the support from the Owen Sound community with their kind words and any help they can offer.)
