FASHIONS WITH FLARE, JUNE 15, 2015

Fashions with Flare - Community Justice Fashion Show 2015 poster
The summer-like weather is finally upon us after a long-delayed spring, and what better way to celebrate than with a summer fashion show.

Fashions with Flare is a fundraising event scheduled for Monday June 15th to support ongoing operation costs for the Lanark County Community Justice Program.

The event will be held at the Perth Civitan Club with doors opening at 6:00 p.m. for a selection of treats and snacks as well as the opportunity to bid on wonderful items in the silent auction. The fashion show will start promptly at 7:00 p.m., featuring clothes from Fall River Fashions, Lavender and Lace, Giant Tiger, Fashion Envy and Jewels. Our volunteers are busily at work planning this 3rd annual event, which will bring a few surprises.
We are pleased to welcome Hugh Colton as our emcee for Fashions with Flare and the first fifty ladies through the door will receive a complimentary flower. In addition to the silent auction, there will be door prizes and a raffle, as well as the chance to take home one of our unique table centrepieces. There will be a cash bar as well as tea and coffee available throughout the evening.

Lanark County Community Justice Program (LCCJP) was formed in 1998 and provides service throughout Lanark County and the Town of Smiths Falls. LCCJP receives court diversion referrals from the police services and the Crown Attorney’s office for both youth and adults on a pre-charge or post-charge basis. Our trained volunteer facilitators bring together everyone involved in an incident in a community forum with the goal of healing the harm that has been done in our communty. Accused persons gain an understanding of the harm they created. Complainants come to understand the circumstances that led to the crime being committed. Both the accused and the complainants have a voice in creating an agreement to bring a resolution to the incident.
Community support is a vital part of our onging operations and we recognize the Perth Civitan, the participating clothing stores as well as the numerous businesses who are donating silent auction and door prize items for this fashion show. LCCJP is also proud to be a United Way Lanark County partner and appreciates the financial support we receive from many service clubs and community groups. For more information about the Lanark County Community Justice Program, please visit our website at http://www.commjustice.org/ or contact our Executive Director, Beth Peterkin, at 613-264-1558 or beth@commjustice.org.

Studio Theatre Perth Presents Hilda’s Yard

Hilda's YardHilda’s Yard, opening February 5th at the Studio Theatre, is vintage Foster. Set in 1956, it’s the story of Sam and Hilda Fluck (yes, Fluck) who find themselves blessedly alone after their children, Gary and Janey, have finally flown the family nest. But alas, both kids turn out to be boomerangs, sailing back home faster than you can say lost job and failed marriage. Meanwhile, Sam Fluck may lose his own job because he took time off work to buy a TV set so he and Hilda can watch Gunsmoke, and son Gary is nervously hiding from a bookie to whom he owes money. Yup, this is vintage Foster alright…touching, a little silly, very funny, and loaded with situations any family (OK, most families) can relate to.

Director Roberta Peets helms this wonderful show with a generous dollop of her own heart thrown in. She was attracted to Hilda’s Yard by its heart-warming characters and the nostalgic tug of the 1950s setting.

Hilda’s Yard premieres at the fully accessible Studio Theatre, 63 Gore Street E. in Perth, on Thursday, February 5th, with performances February 5, 6, 7, 13, 14 at 8:00 pm, and February 8 and 15 at 2:00 pm. Regular tickets are $22 at The Book Nook, 60 Gore St. E. (cash only); Tickets Please, 39 Foster St. (613-485-6434;ticketsplease.ca; credit cards accepted, a convenience fee applies) and Shadowfax, 67 Foster St. (613-267-6817; shadowfax.on.ca; credit cards accepted, a convenience fee applies). Tickets are $24 at the door, and students with ID pay just $10 at the door on show nights.

So don’t miss your chance to peek over Hilda’s fence, starting February 5th. If you like crowd pleasing shows with plenty of laughs and a happy ending, Hilda’s Yard is the night out you’ve been longing for
