APRIL FREE & CHEAP EVENTS (April 8 – April 10, 2016)

 

Hi Everyone! I am sad to say that this Calendar will be a very short one. My husband’s young Uncle Brian got sick suddenly and is now on life support. Our family is just devastated and I am having trouble concentrating on the Calendar. Please excuse me this week for it being so small. Although the news is not good, we still would love any prayers for him.

For those of you really unsure what to do, it is best to check your local library calendars to see what is happening!

 


 

FACEOFF CLOTH

Untitled-1-1

In memory of the Neville-Lake children, Daniel, Harry and Milly, FaceOff will be contributing a portion of their proceeds to MADD Canada. Please help us support MADD Canada (Mothers Against Drunk Driving)
For each cloth sold on the website, during the month of APRIL, FaceOff will make a $2 donation to MADD Canada.
FaceOff is a natural, soft, reusable cleansing cloth that removes all face and eye makeup, even mascara, using only warm water.
1 Cloth will last you 3-4 months which is cheaper than buying many other expensive removers.
It instantly eliminates dirt, excess oil and skin impurities leaving the complexion fresh and radiant.
It gently exfoliate and cleanse the skin, and it is safe and suitable for all skin types. It is gentle enough for babies and children.
FaceOff is free of all detergents and chemicals and eliminates the need for expensive make up removers and disposable wipes that contain chemicals and detergents that may irritate and dry the skin.

Cost: $12.95+ tax and shipping
Buy 2 cloths and get FREE shipping

Silas NEVER says bad words, not even when prompted by his 21 year old sister. When he was 18 months, Mickey Mouse Club House was on and Mickey dropped something to which Silas yells out “OH FOR F*CK SAKES MICKEY MOUSE”!!!
