Carleton Place Community Labyrinth – Summer Solstice Walk

 

The Carleton Place Community Labyrinth will be holding a Summer Solstice Walk on June 21st, 2019.

If you are new to the labyrinth experience, this Saturday walk will be a perfect introduction for you. Information about the history, benefits and unique aspects of the labyrinth will be available onsite.

The Labyrinth Committee (TLC) is a group of volunteers all with a keen interest in establishing a permanent labyrinth within our community. TLC is a sub- committee of the Carleton Place in Bloom committee, a committee of council.

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. Our first meeting was held in April of 2008.

Happy Valentine’s Day!

 

Valentine’s Day is an opportunity for people in Canada to tell somebody that they love them in a romantic way. It falls on February 14, the name day of two saints, St Valentine of Rome and St Valentine of Terni.

Many people give gifts to loved ones on Valentine’s Day. Common gifts are letters, cards, presents and gifts to the person with whom they have or want to have a romantic relationship. Valentine’s Day cards are often red or pink and decorated with images of hearts, red roses, teddy bears, presents or happy couples kissing or embracing.

The most common symbols of Valentine’s Day are heart shapes, which are used to decorate many things, including cards, trees, wrapping paper, cookies and gift boxes. Other symbols associated with February 14 are pairs of birds, cute teddy bears, Cupid and his arrows and couples kissing or embracing. The colors red and pink are often associated with Valentine’s Day.
