rethinkGIVING

web header-01.jpg

rethinkGIVING on Saturday December 15th, 1-4PM at Emmanuel United Church, 534 George Street North.

Turn your compassion into action with Nourish! Create change while enjoying cookies and exercising your creativity! This year, give your friends and family gifts that inspire action.

Make your own social justice gift with the help of our fact and craft stations. Each station will offer an “ingredient for social change” and you can pick and choose the pieces you’d like to share with a loved one. We’ll have lots of art supplies available so you can cut and paste, doodle, write, and giftwrap your package of statistics, charts, recommendations for books or films, and more! You can even make your own social justice buttons!

rethinkGIVING is all about rethinking how we give over the holidays and all year round. At this time of year especially, our community very generously donates their time and money, often to food programs, but many of us forget the necessity of creating the kind of upstream change that could end poverty and food insecurity altogether.

This family-friendly event will also give you the opportunity to participate in our photobooth. Do you have an important message you’d like us to share with our social media following? Make a sign and we’ll take your picture.

This is a free drop-in event.

Turner & Pooch Pack Walk

46497934_1008568792661900_6374084698259324928_o.jpg

This is an event for owners and those fostering dogs to get out and enjoy a walk with other dogs and humans. This event is for all dogs regardless of behaviour problems, so please don't feel like you need to leave your dog at home! I just ask that he or she be muzzled for the safety of the other dogs and humans. And since this event is open to all dogs, please don't allow your dog to meet any of the other participants, they might not appreciate a strange dog walking up to them. 

We will meet at Del Crary park, and take advantage of some of the amazing trails downtown Peterborough has to offer! I will go over some tips for teaching your dog to walk on a loose leash as well as the tools I prefer to use, and why I use 
them. 

There is absolutely no extendible or flexi leashes allowed for this event! Please have your dog in a standard 4 or 6 foot leash. All other training tools are permitted as long as they are being used responsibly. 

**This is a FREE event**

Sunday Team Walk

44025040_2043337405725936_6800563143887028224_n.jpg

Sunday Team Walk is a group walk with our dogs, to work on focus and attention on the handler, loose leash walking and ignoring distractions. The entire walk is like a training class, every time a dog/human/stroller/motorized wheelchair/skier/bike rider (whatever a dog may be reactive too) approaches all we all move off to the side, working on focus and attention on the handler. I work individually with each dog as needed, often walking the dog for the owner to work on specific behaviors. We also add in some parkour style training teaching "paws up" on park benches, rocks, and other obstacles. Many of these dogs can't be close to other dogs at all on a normal walk. This isn't a "stroll in the park" walk :) This is a training walk! 
Cost is $20 for the hour long walk. NO shock/choke/prong collars. NO flexi's! Your dog should be wearing a flat collar or harness and six foot leash. Come out and try one of the new Freedom No Pull Harnesses that I now have available!

Blue Rodeo with Special Guests

41941008_2179508162300771_2570289823575179264_n.jpg

The Peterborough Memorial Centre and GPHSF, Your Family Health Team Foundation, is pleased to announce that the legendary Canadian group Blue Rodeo will be performing at the Peterborough Memorial Centre on Friday, December, 28 2018 with special guests.  

The definition of a rebel is someone who goes against the grain. For close to thirty years now, Blue Rodeo has taken the road less travelled – and succeeded far beyond anyone’s expectations. The band emerged in the early 80’s as a countrified rock band in the era of hair metal and glossy pop. Despite sticking out like a sore thumb (or maybe because of it), their single “Try” became omni-present on radio across Canada and set in motion a three decade long career of headlining every club, theatre and arena in Canada. In 1993, when grunge rock was squeezing commercial rock off the radio, they recorded their most acoustic album, Five Days In July, and scored their biggest hit selling over a half million copies of that one record alone.

Now, with their 14th Warner Music Canada studio album – 1000 Arms, Blue Rodeo’s successes are measured in terms that include induction into the Canadian Music Hall of Fame (2012), receiving a Governor General’s Performing Arts Award (2014) and acknowledgment that the band has steadfastly defined itself by its own terms, and in the years that ensued, sold in excess of four million records.

Hogmanay

hh_winter2.jpg

The Scots have been celebrating Hogmanay since the 16th century. Before the Reformation, the Scots celebrated a wide range of festivals from Christian, Norse and Celtic traditions. At the time of the Reformation, the Church of England cancelled all festivals except the most important feast days and by the mid-16th century, the observation of many of these had been almost entirely abolished. Christian feasts were seen to incorporate and sanctify pagan rituals. The Scottish Kirk forbade the celebration of Christmas, and in 1647 its observance was forbidden by an Act of Parliament. The result was that the Scots focussed on the celebration of the New Year - Hogmanay. By the 19th century, Christmas had been restored as a religious observance and Hogmanay continued as a time of merry-making.

Part of the preparation for the coming year involved putting one’s house in order. Debts were paid, the house was swept clean, clocks were wound, musical instruments were tuned, silver, brass and pewter were polished, clothes were mended, clean sheet were put on the beds, and anything borrowed was returned to its owner to ensure that all was in readiness when the new year arrived. Stray dogs were sent away, as they were thought to bring bad luck. Finally, the fire was piled high, the higher the flames, the greater the luck to come.

As with any festive occasion, Hogmanay includes the preparation of special food and beverages. At Hutchison House, on New Year’s Day, visitors will be treated to Scotch Black Bun, a rich mixture of currants, raisins, peel, spices and whisky, baked in a fine pastry dough, Clooty Dumpling or Duff, Scotch Eggs, Potted Salmon, cheeses, oatcakes, shortbread and Haggis. In the Highland tradition, the Hogmanay beverage, Atholl Brose, a heated mixture of honey and whisky topped with a dollop of whipped cream and toasted oats, will also be available.

Our first-footer will be “piped in” at precisely 1 p.m. January 1st with a rousing rendition of ‘Burns’ Address to a Haggis’ to follow shortly thereafter. Visitors will enjoy tours of the museum as well as samples of the taste of Scotland throughout the afternoon. Fiddle music, Highland dancing, and the skirl of the bagpipe and drum will round out the day. Plan to drop in to wish new friends and old neighbours the best for the coming year.

Help us ring in the new year at Hutchison House with a Hogmanay celebration from 1 to 3:30 p.m. on, January 1, 2019. Admission prices: adults $10.00; children $5.00; family rate $20.00 (2adults/2 children). This is a ‘drop-in’ affair. Space at the museum is limited and in order to accommodate visitors to this popular event and we would respectfully ask participants to keep the length of their visit as short as possible to avoid overcrowding. Atholl Brose sold separately. For more information call the museum at (705) 743-9710.

Bicycle Museum Pop-up

45280416_569827200113325_6785049502970544128_o.jpg

Members of the public are invited to come see a collection of a dozen historical photos from the late 1800s and early 1900s alongside a replica Penny Farthing bicycle at the Peterborough Public Library on December 3, 2018, starting at 12 noon. The free exhibit showcases Peterborough’s rich cycling history and will run until the New Year.

Peterborough was at the centre of the cycling craze in the 1890s and held the first ever Canadian Wheelmen’s Association provincial meet on July 1, 1898, where big wheel – or Penny Farthing – bikes raced around the track at Morrow Park to the delight of almost 7,000 onlookers. Peterborough also has one of the longest standing bicycle clubs in the country.

“Peterborough has a long tradition of cycling excellence and that tradition needs to be acknowledged – and it needs to continue,” says Tammy Thorne, the creator of TheBicycleMuseum.ca and the subsequent pop-up exhibits here in Peterborough, which launched last month. “There’s so much heritage that needs to be preserved in Peterborough – and it’s not just buildings, there are many great stories from this city’s illustrious industrial past that need to be told, and cycling is just one part of that,” says Thorne, founding editor of Toronto’s arts and advocacy magazine for cyclists, dandyhorse.

Peterborough’s new mayor attended the first iteration of the pop-up at B!KE: the community bike shop and vowed to continue to support cycling in Peterborough. 

“Cycling is an important part of Peterborough’s transit systems. Our cycling infrastructure is growing through the expansion of bike lanes and trail connections.  Living in a bike friendly City boosts tourism, encourages active transportation, and ensures people of all ages are able to live in a healthy, sustainable way. I am delighted this pop-up exhibit is available to show our City’s history of cycling excellence, and I encourage you to experience it for yourself,” says Diane Therrien, Mayor of Peterborough.

 

THE BIKE

“This big wheel bicycle has meant so much to our family,” says Tim Belch. “This replica Penny Farthing – the only one I am aware of in the county – was actually ridden many times by my father Dr. Willoughby Belch, a former surgeon here in Peterborough, at many area events. It would mean so much to my father to know that this marvelous machine he ordered via Banks Bicycles, to celebrate Canada’s Centennial was being celebrated here today in Peterborough.” Belch, who is a councillor for Cavan-Monaghan Township, adds, “There are just so many great memories that this unique bicycle has provided – even those memories that ended in crashes.” Belch shared his story with TheBicycleMuseum.ca and you can read more about his tumble from atop of the high wheel here.

 

THE IMAGES

The images are largely from the Peterborough Museum and Archives, but part of the collection comes from Peggy Brownscombe, the daughter of the former owner of one of the city’s earliest bike shops; White’s Cycle and Sporting Goods

“Many of the images have stories behind them that are yet to be discovered,” says Thorne, “For example, we have this lovely photo of Alex Gibson with his high wheel bike and medals. He was a member of the Peterborough Cycling Club, even the treasurer for a time, and his father was likely a watchmaker. If there is anyone in the community who knows his story – or his grandchildren – we’d love to hear from them.”

 

THE HOSTS

Jennifer Jones, Peterborough Public Library CEO, says, “Cycling is a large part of the Peterborough community and has been for some time. This pop-up exhibit gives us the opportunity to glimpse into the rich history of bicycles in our neighbourhoods. The Library is thrilled to be able to provide the space to bring some of that history to light."

During the month of December the library will feature staff picks for bicycle and history books and you can read our interviews with the Peterborough Public Library Staff online at TheBicycleMuseum.ca (coming Friday.) There will be a book to sign where you can add your bicycling history story and contact information. You can also email thebicyclemuseumptbo@gmail.com if you have information about this exhibit or historic bicycling artifacts you would like to share for a future exhibit. TheBicycleMuseum.ca will produce new exhibits in 2019 featuring CCM artifacts and bicycles and another exhibit featuring service bicycles and stories.

The Bicycle Museum Pop-up project is very grateful to B!KE where the first pop-up launched on November 2, 2018. Tegan Moss, Executive Director of B!KE  says, “It’s easy to forget that people have been riding bicycles for longer than they have been driving cars! It’s challenging to imagine what our cities looked like before the automobile. Peering into the past shows us how quickly sport and transportation can change. We at B!KE love to talk about bicycles, and we were delighted to host The Bicycle Museum as it is an incredible opportunity to learn more about the history of bicycles in Peterborough.”

You can read more about this exhibit and view some of the images on display at the website: TheBicycleMuseum.ca.
