What’s Happening in the Tri Cities: Women, Wine and Song

Pat Service Evergreen Cultural Centre Coquitlam

A focus on healthy living this week in the Tri Cities, mentally, physically, societally, artistically and environmentally. If you manage to attend all these events you will build up enough karma to keep you in gold stars until Easter (perhaps). Or you could switch off your grey matter and just watch a bunch of women run around naked on stage.
