Full Moon Walk in Carleton Place!

 

A Carleton Place Community Labyrinth event. Join the Carleton Place Community Labyrinth for the Full Moon Walk.

 

Who are we?

Our introduction to labyrinths came about when a number of us attended a Carleton Place and District Horticultural Society meeting and listened to , “Lessons from the Labyrinth” a presentation by Jenny Anderson, a local horticulturalist and labyrinth builder. Inspired by the opportunity to create a unique public space for passive recreation, meditation and community events our enthusiasm about the project grew. Further encouraged by CPiB chair, and councillor Wendy LeBlanc our group came together from standing members of CPiB and other interested volunteers.

Doors open – Carleton Place!

 

Carleton Place is excited to once again be participating in the Doors Open phenomenon on Saturday September 21 2019! 
It was 200 years ago that the Moore family first arrived from Ireland to what is now Carleton Place to put down roots. Soon after, they were opening their door to shelter fellow settlers. We are thrilled to be continuing in this tradition of Doors Open!

 

This year we’ve got 18 different sites that will be opening their doors to the public, all free of charge! This is a great opportunity for residents to play tourist in their own town, and one more reason for visitors to come and discover what the town of Carleton Place has to offer as we celebrate 200 years as a community!

Organized by the Municipal Heritage Committee, the event is coming together with the assistance of the Ontario Heritage Trust, The Carleton Place and Beckwith Heritage Museum and Downtown Carleton Place.

 

Some of the highlights of this year’s Doors Open event include:

  • Free wagon rides between sites with host Linda Seccaspina’s commentary
  • Tours of the wool grading facility at the Canadian Cooperative Woolgrowers
  • Guided tours of the Carleton Place Town Hall, taking you backstage in the historical auditorium where you can stand on one of Canada’s few remaining raked stages
  • Tours of the SamBat baseball bat factory
  • Antique quilt displays at the Baptist Church and St. James Anglican Church
  • Behind the scenes tours at The Carleton Place and Beckwith Heritage Museum
  • The Old Federal Building (Post Office) open to the public for the first time in many years
  • St. Mary’s Catholic School inviting you to celebrate their 60th anniversary

Beyond exploring the buildings, you’ll want to partake in:

  • a Bicentennial Victorian tea with fancy finger foods at St. James Church Hall (free!)
  • a Bicentennial Antique Show and Sale, also at St. James Church Hall
  • Beverages on the patio at both Boulton House and Braumeister Brewing Company

Saturday, September 21, 2019 from 10am to 4pm

Take Back The Night

 

For the past several years Carleton Place has been host to one of the most well-attended rural Take Back the Night Marches in Canada. Even on the soggiest of nights local residents turn out with their banners and noise-makers in record numbers. All to demand that a womanʼs right to walk our streets safely be upheld.

For over 10 years, Carleton Place has been host to one of the most well-attended rural Take Back the Night Marches in Canada. Even on the soggiest of nights, local residents turn out with their banners and noise-makers in record numbers. All to demand that a woman’s right to walk our streets safely be upheld.

 

Take Back the Night is about women’s right to be free of violence and to walk without fear.

 

  • History:  

Take Back The Night is the earliest worldwide movement to stand against sexual violence, especially violence against women.  TBTN Events began in the 1960’s in Belgium and England with protests about how women were not able to be safe walking down the street alone.  In 1973, in the United States, a group of women at the University of Southern Florida dressed in black sheets holding broomsticks and marched through campus demanding a women’s center.

In 1975, a crowd in Philadelphia held a Take Back The Night Event to protest the murder of a microbiologist walking near her home after work.  In the 70’s San Francisco had a number of rallies in protest “snuff” pornography and violence against women.

These early events have grown into hundreds of events on college campuses and in communities of all sizes and locations.  The unifying theme of these events is to bring awareness to sexual violence and provide support for victims.
