Hmmm, so you wrote this piece on Friday and it went out in the email on Sat. at 9:30 AM, for a Sat. 9 AM event, of which I received it at work (my choice, I know) on Mon. Not much notice there.

Hey Todd! We've been writing about Beautify Bonney Lake for a while and have some friends with BBL that have been talking about it in our blog. Sorry the last-minute preview didn't give you enough time to plan... I'll try and get these event previews out earlier!
