Congratulations to Kristen (Stanley) and Kyle Timpson, as they welcomed a baby boy on Apr. 22. They named him Oliver Robert, and he is a little brother for Henry. Best wishes to the whole family.
Homegrown Garden Centre opened for the season on Saturday, and thankfully the weather co-operated so that Lindsay and Ryan and their staff could have a terrific opening day. Stacy and Maddy Belland were there to do face painting and entertain the children while their parents shopped, and Lainey Woermke was also there selling bouquets of her lovely tulips. Here’s to another great season for Homegrown.
