I am sitting here at work, on a very cold day, surrounded by several space and gas heaters and what comes in the mail? The City of Alexandria’s three month event calendar. I was considerably cheered when I read the events which will commence from now through March. My favorite picks (the ones I circled and plan on going to) are as follows:

March 19th, Saturday, Corley’s Miniature Petting Zoo
Well, even though this is bad timing for this event, I am including it because I think it is a cool idea and that Vivian would really dig it. TREE House and the Martin Foundation is sponsoring a petting zoo for children 1-3pm. Cost is $4 per person, children under 2 are free. Call Kara for more information: 619-9394.
Great things are going on in Cenla! Hope to see you at one of these events.
