Guatemala Stove Project Fundraising Dance

 

Come on out and dance for a great cause! On Friday, November 17, the Guatemala Stove Project is hosting a fundraising dance featuring the talented local band, Under the Covers. This band will have you up on your feet and dancing all night.

This annual fundraiser will feature a silent auction of unique items crafted by local artisans or donated by local businesses.

The Guatemala Stove Project, a volunteer-based organization is continuing its efforts to raise funds for the construction of masonry cook stoves for impoverished, rural Mayan families. Over 6,400 stoves have been built so far creating a lasting legacy for rural families in the western highlands of Guatemala. Consider that a single stove extends the lives of each family member in a household by 10 – 15 years and reduces the amount of firewood needed by half which helps to preserve the country’s precious forests.

The Guatemala Stove Project also supports sustainable-development projects in over a dozen communities and issues micro-loans to indigenous women to start small businesses that will help lift them out of poverty. The Guatemala Stove Project recognizes the importance of education in creating opportunity and hope for the future. It provides scholarships to a number of students who would otherwise not have this opportunity.

You’ve heard about the GSP and maybe you have even made a donation in the past. Now is the time to show your support for the indigenous people in Guatemala. Bring your dancing shoes to the Perth Civitan Club for this fantastic licensed fundraising event! Mark the date on your calendar and get your tickets!

Tickets: $20 at Tickets Please in Perth, on-line at ticketsplease.ca
or at the door.
Civitan Hall doors open at 7 p.m. Under the Covers starts playing at 8 p.m.

Tara Shannon Live in Concert

 

 

Country music recording artist, Tara Shannon, live in concert featuring Wade Foster and special guests Jeff Callery & Arlene Quinn ~ an evening of country music with a bit of folk and a whole lot of soul.

Shannon’s latest album, produced by Hayley McLean, is a fusion of country and contemporary sounds aimed to attract audiences to her sophisticated, soulful musicality. The title of the album originated from a decision Shannon made 20 years ago to put her recording career on hold for her family. After being discovered by Alanis Morissette’s parents, the songstress declined a record deal knowing the timing just wasn’t right as Shannon and her husband were already busy raising their young children – a life that wasn’t conducive to a touring career. Two decades later and with all seven of Shannon’s children now mostly grown, Unfinished is her official and long-awaited comeback to music.

“This Canadian thrush displays plenty of finger-snapping sass on this rollicking, bluesy ‘attitude’ tune (Take This Rock – And Roll)” ~ Robert K Oermann, Music Row Nashville

Cyclosportif Perth – Cycle Tour

 

Come join hundreds of cyclists on the roads in, around and between Perth, Murphy’s Point, Portland, and Westport.

Cyclosportif Perth – Cycle Tour will be taking place on September 23rd, 2017, starting at the Perth Lions Club.

The Perth area is a beautiful and well kept secret for cycling. Maybe surprisingly, the area also has a tremendous network of dirt roads and trails on which to ride. These routes can be used to cut across some of the busier paved roads. They also tend to go in areas not normally seen on two wheels. Some of the best riding can be found on these routes, and this is your chance to check them out!

Cyclosportive Perth is not a race–there will be no results and no timed sections. You can go hard if you want, or you can simply take your time and enjoy the scenery.

We’ve got something for most everyone, from “The Roadie 100k” to “The Roadie Century” to the even more adventurous folks who like a bit of dirt and gravel with “The Dirty Version”–118k on a mix of paved and dirt roads.

Come and explore this great area on two wheels. There is so much to see.
