Upcoming Fairs & Expos
We sent an email this week to holistic practitioners with winter and spring fairs and expos including the 2015 Greater Vernon Holistic Expo they might want to participate in. Although the intent was to encourage practitioners to market their business, those of you who like to attend fairs might want to put these on your calendars. We'll announce them as they approach, but this will let you plan in advance.
