WHAT’S HAPPENING News Edited by Lily Washburn


Because we go to press a month before publication date there are sometimes announcements made after copy date about things which will have passed by the time of the next issue. If you have urgent news about something happening before the following issue is published, we have a Facebook Page at www.facebook.com/frootsmag where you can post it.
