ON THE COVER — Let’s Party! — Page 18
Warmer weather is just around the corner and it’s time to celebrate good times and special occasions outside as much as possible, (however, on those scorching hot days, an inside venue might be a good option too). Whether it’s in your own back yard or at a local business, our cover story offers suggestions on who to contact to make sure the next party you host is the best one yet!

COVER DESCRIPTION AND INDIVIDUALS PICTURED: The 14 X 14 Friendly Dinosaur Bouncer — supplied by Castle Kings Windsor — is the ideal inflatable choice for the dinosaur lover! And it’s suitable for toddlers and all the way up to adults. Both the young and young at heart can enjoy posing with the dinosaur’s head and tail that reach right out of the bouncer. It’s the perfect photo backdrop for our cover and definitely two thumbs up on the fun scale for kids! From left are: Colton Price, Ashton Price, Christian
Al Hourani, Abigail Al Hourani and Addelyn Price, who are shown with Castle Kings Windsor Owner, Jeremy Pillon and his son/associate Lyndon. PHOTOGRAPHER: Rod Denis. (

The squash club (with roots dating back to 1973 as Windsor Indoor Tennis), is celebrating 30 years of ownership by Tom and Marcy Porter in 2023 . . . which gives us reason to celebrate their success in this issue.
