  1. Every year our group plans a trip to the Maple Syrup Festival, but we seem to miss it, so I hope we can make it this year!

  2. I would absolutely love to see the Mammoths and Mastodons at the Ontario Science Centre!!! I am a history freak and love archaeology and paleontology. I’ve always wanted to be an archaeologist or paleontologist. It fascinates me.

  3. Thank you for all the great ideas… we will be staying local for march break and plan to take in some Toronto attractions!
