May Edition – PSN – Parliament Street News

PSN21-may-full-cover-01

Thanks to all of our advertisers. When things open up (he said for the fifth straight issue), we will have a party for all of our contributors and advertisers. We will “kiss until the Goat comes home” because “a good goat does that”.  too soon?? Advertising in our little paper is only a fraction of what local businesses are doing to support others in these trying times, and yes I hope they find the goat and did I mention this is the 52nd edition of the Parliament Street News? We have lots of interesting contributors:

We welcome opinions. Varied and opinionated articles are coming in, and we always need more. The neighbourhood and everything is about to explode in every way.

Whatever you are passionate about is going to skyrocket in the months to come. Whatever has been an issue or of political concern will be ratcheted up to a new level. This era will be magic and could be tragic and we’d love to hear about it and share it.

The street energy cut loose and fueled by warm hot weather will bring out the joy, but it will also bring reality spilling right onto the street.

Welcome to a  new era of energy and enthusiasm, so get your running shoes on and keep your head up.

See you in August.
