This Saturday promises to be absolutely glorious! I’m looking forward to having Lil Dorothy, Purlin’ J’s yarn truck, in Barriefield this Saturday, 7 June from 10am to 4pm. Look for Lil Dorothy in the green field.

Note: Activities will take place in three locations: the green field (GF) at the intersection of Wellington and George Streets, St. Mark’s Church (SM), and the Frontenac County Schools Museum (FCSM).
