Word on the Street Fun, Saskatoon

Did you have a chance to say “hi” to Kate and Kristina at Word on the Street?
They reported that they had a terrific day weather wise and the booth was busy! Likely due to the fact that the CBBAG SK booth was located right in front of the Broadway Theatre – so we had a great location!
Kate and Kristina even brought along a few little books to sell as a fundraiser for CBBAG SK.
A great success and a lot of interest was generated.
