Wow, it’s April already? Yes, it sure is. And there’s no fooling around for this week’s LOVIEE. This one’s a bit light, but not entirely by choice; there really was not a whole lot to pick from.
The monthly LOVIEE may be a day or two later than usual and I may add additional events as the week goes on. I’ve looked ahead and I already see several truly exciting things coming up in April. Spread the word, tell your friends, April is going to be an exciting month and Quinn’s Big City has the inside scoop!
