We begin this month by honoring the mothers in our life, and end it by paying solemn tribute to those who have made the ultimate sacrifice for our nation – it’s the perfect time for reflection. 

Artists color our world, and Natasha Holland’s creativity is inspired by every place she’s lived, including the island of Guam. We’ll introduce you to her and her imaginative work.

We all have heroes in our lives – the people who stand up for those who are in trouble, fight for those in need and help wherever it is needed. Many of these heroes are making their mark with Court Appointed Special Advocates (CASA) of Tulare County, where intensively trained volunteers give a voice to children who are the victims of abuse or neglect. A fundraiser is coming up to help support this effort. 

Ready for some international fun? It’s the 50th year of the Kingsburg Swedish Festival, which features a pea soup and pancake supper, entertainment, a farmers’ market and crowning of the Swedish Queen.

Whether you’re a beer aficionado or have simply been wondering what the craft beer craze is all about, check out the annual Craft Beer Crawl in Clovis. It’s the perfect time to get to know the folks behind the brews while meandering through Old Town.

We’ll also share more about some of the small businesses that make our community special, like Root: A Community General Store in Fresno, Goodies Cookies and Cakes in Visalia, Wild Oak Coffee House in Springville and Make Pie, Not War in Fresno.

Savor the last few weeks of spring, and enjoy!
