Kate’s 5 fun things to do this weekend at home (May 8 to 10)


The weather this weekend may have people wanting to curl up inside because it will be a bit cooler than we might expect in May.

People can take part in The Great Canadian Porch Party. The organizers say “sing, dance, yell ‘hello’ to your neighbours and yell a big ‘thank you’ for all of those still working on the front lines.”

If you’re looking for a new book, the Waterloo Public Library has announced its One Book, One Community selection for this year and it’s Moon of the Crusted Snow by Waubgeshig Rice.

Also, don’t forget it’s Mother’s Day on Sunday.
