Directories are being delivered around the county this month.  If you wish to have some for your location, please let me know and we will get them to you.  If we have left too many for you, also let us know and we will try to pick them up or please think about dropping them off at a business in your area where there is more traffic.  By sharing the Arts Directory, we help promote each other and let visitors know about the arts and arts events in the Haliburton Highlands.
