Opportunity Knocks ~ Your Chance To Get Involved!

I had originally hoped to get this column launched for Friday, but sadly as with most things in life we sometimes get waylaid.  I often joke that I'm not behind, but rather ahead of the game for the next round..    I'm not sure if that's entirely accurate, but it occasionally makes me feel better..  :) 
Do you have an opportunity that you'd like to share? Please send it to me at tammy@easternontarionetwork.com
