This November you can make food donations for Canadian veterans in need. The cause is going on from the 1st till the 15th. They are accepting non-perishable food items to the Canadian Legacy Project’s 8th annual food drive. Giving back to those that have served the country is a must.
There’s a new restaurant in town opening in the middle of November. The Barcelona Tavern is a Spanish and Mediterranean restaurant on 8th Avenue. It’s actually the only gin and tonic type of bar downtown.
