The joy of living and working in Almonte is going to get even more joyful this weekend as we prepare for a number of downtown events that culminate in Jazz It Up!, a performance and culinary feast in support of our downtown renaissance, inspired by my friend Kelmany Ross and run by her company, Add Pizzazz Creative Event Design and Management.

Along with our previous introduction to blogging that's fast turning Almonte into "VOXtown", market2world has been pleased to lend a hand with PR support that's bringing (more) big-city media attention to a place that has become a very exciting hub for knowledge-based professionals, emerging companies, artists, and seekers of all stripes hungering for what we've dubbed "paradise in penturbia".

If you want to sate some of that hunger on this fine Spring weekend and happen to be within driving distance of Almonte, please come join us!
