At the Civic Centre
Hastings has a civic centre which is located on the top of a hill at Albert and Hwy 45. Being situated on the lower level of the library makes it a central place people know about. This became the venue for our presentation, “Tales from Trails.” With this presentation, I basically took the attendees—over fifty in number—for a walk across the country, mentally.
Attendees were attentive. What a marvelous group of mature people they were. Should I expect anything else? We are looking at thoughtful, mindful folks.
Skye was the real hero for the event, in my opinion. She secured the venue, called friends to come, did additional promotion and was the brains behind the set up. She’s a networker, practical and conscientious.
Fil came with his produce, for sale and for talking about. “Beyond Organic” is his slogan. He met people also in his field, among them organic farmers, bakers, and professionals. Down to earth people indeed.
Tony, from the Norwood Holistic Centre, arrived and began the kirtan, which engaged people in singing and clapping.
Kirtan (the person) brought her home-made wraps as refreshments, enjoyed by all.
The line of credits to a successful program goes on. Perhaps the most curious of questions that arose was, “What type of shoes do you use for the long-haul walking?”
Answer, kyboots, Swiss technology and Italian-made.
May the Source be with you!
