The first Skeena Valley Farmers’ Market of the year this past Saturday makes it official

The first Skeena Valley Farmers’ Market of the year this past Saturday makes it official – while spring weather may often be slow in arriving, local residents have decided it’s time to move activities outside.

Stock car enthusiasts have also taken up the challenge with the Terrace Stock Car Association hosting its first event of the season May 10 – doubling up for Mother’s Day with  the Mother’s Day Season Opener at the Terrace Speedway.

And in homes across the area, skiis and skates have been packed away in favour of ball gloves, bats, soccer shoes and bicycles.

Spring’s that marvelous time of the yearly cycle in which winter is shaken off and the lengthening days offer the promise of rejuvenation, warmth and growth.

Gardeners, both food and decoratives, husband indoor plants in anticipation of planting and anticipation of the bounty to come.

Whatever your outdoor activity, enjoy it to the utmost. And ignore those winter tires in the garage – at least for now.

Showcase

And best wishes to the local group preparing a bid to host the 2017 National Aboriginal Hockey Championships.

With a growing number of amenities, it’s a perfect opportunity to not only host visitors from across the country but to showcase Terrace and northwestern B.C.
