hunt-the-hare_5aec9bee8e22c.jpg

Back for its third year, Live and Local Lunches has a new lineup of rock, folk, blues, country and jazz.

Live and Local Lunches is a partnership with the Downtown Business Improvement Area, Peterborough Square, Gerri’s Arts and Crafts, and Bench Tech to host live music outdoors every Friday for one hour starting at noon in the Peterborough Square Courtyard at the corner of Charlotte and Water streets. This summer music series starts May 25 and runs to Aug. 31.

With more than 90 places to eat downtown, music lovers are encouraged to get some takeout and enjoy the sunshine as we head into the weekend.

"These small concerts are a great way to animate the downtown in a fun and positive way,” says

Terry Guiel, executive director of the Downtown Business Improvement Area. "They are also a real treat for all the employees who work downtown to take some time to get out of the office, grab some lunch and enjoy live music under the sunny skies."

“I get stopped all year-long and asked ‘When do you start back up again? or comments like ‘I really enjoy Fridays Downtown now,’ etc. People are stoked to see this series return for the third year,” says Kip Gordon, owner of Bench Tech. “Music connects people and cures all that ails you! Come on down and check it out —  you won't be sorry!”

“We at Gerri’s Arts & Crafts believe that the local talent in Peterborough is second to none,” says Les Manley, owner of Gerri’s Arts & Crafts. “Encompassing all genres, set in beautiful Downtown Peterborough, the open air venue is a perfect way to spend a Friday lunch.”

                                11-1:00 p.m. BBQ Lunch

1:00 p.m. Welcome and remarks by family

                                3:00 p.m. – 50/50 draw and other prizes

Following today’s press conference , The Canadian Mental Health Association, Haliburton, Kawartha, Pine Ridge (C.M.H.A. H.K.P.R.)  is pleased to announce details for the Brent Upper Memorial Ball Tournament, in memory of Brent “Ripper” Upper and Jake “Steamtrain” Stanley. The tournament will take place on Saturday, July 21, 2018 at the Asphodel-Norwood Community Centre, located at 88 Alma Street, Norwood, Ontario.

The friends and family of Brent Upper, a local man who tragically is one of the many young people who lost their life in the past year to the opioid crisis, have organized the tournament. Brent’s friend, Jake Stanley, another promising young local man, lost his life to suicide in 2015. Sheri Erickson, Brent’s Mom, decided she wanted to host this tournament in their memories to help bring awareness to the ongoing need for supports for young people battling mental health and addictions and to provide funding that will stay local, to help others. 

Born and raised in Lakefield, Brent was very involved in local sports. Therefore, one third of the funds raised at the tournament will be directed to the Lakefield Chief’s, Brent’s home team, while the remaining proceeds will be directed to two C.M.H.A. H.K.P.R endeavors, Lynx, an early psychosis program for youth and Team55 Let’s Tackle Suicide Prevention.

Through an amazing family and friend’s network, registration is now closed for the tournament, with 20 teams confirmed. However, there are still many ways for the community to support this amazing event. Donations can be made on-line to the Brent Upper Memorial Ball Tournament at http://cmhahkpr.ca/get-involved/donate/ or you can download a pledge sheet at http://cmhahkpr.ca/events/brent-upper-memorial-ball-tournament/  Also, as in any great sporting event, fans are always welcome! The first pitch will be thrown at 8:00 a.m. There will be a BBQ lunch from 11-1, with remarks from family at 1:00 p.m. A 50/50 draw and other prizes will be awarded at 3:00.

For questions about the tournament, please contact Sheri Erickson at 705-872-2910.

Make a Pair of Summer Moccasins

24301354_1754405847926330_7442767952643426710_n.jpg

Moccasins have been worn for centuries as the primary footwear in the summer over hard portages and soft forest floors. Now you can create a unique pair of your own with the added durability of a painted on rubber sole. The sole is made with recycled tire and barge cement which maintains the flexibility of the moccasin so you can still feel the ground beneath you. These moccasins are perfect for around the house, in your backyard gardening, around base camp while canoeing or hiking or even as a barefoot running modification.

Included in this workshop is all the materials needed to make a custom pair of two-part leather moccasin, a pair of felt insoles and lots of options for decorating your moccasins and making them your own. 

Member’s Price: $157
Non-Member's Price: $175

Natural Plaster Workshop

31841524_1331421243624275_6957898365854023680_o.jpg

Our Natural Plaster Workshop takes you from base coat to fine finishes. Clay and lime plasters are beautiful, non-toxic, good for the planet and lots of fun to mix and apply!

Learn to work with natural clay and lime binders using recipes and techniques that will work on any natural wall material as well as conventional wall types. You will discover how to prepare wall surfaces and set up a plastering job to look great.

Base coat plasters are a thick and straw-rich layer that can be applied by hand or by trowel, and you will get to experience both techniques. Find out how to build up a thick base coat with the form and texture you want. Learn to avoid cracking, delamination, slumping and dusting so your base coat will be long-lasting, durable and a great substrate for a good looking finish. The hands-on format offers you lots of opportunities to practice and gain valuable application skills.

Finish coat plasters are thin, can be pigmented with rich colours and textured in countless ways. You will learn how to apply fine finishes to ensure you get the look you desire for your walls. Troweling, compression and burnishing techniques will all be part of the hands-on experience.

In the Natural Plaster Workshop, you will experience plasters made from natural earth, processed clay, hydrated and hydraulic lime and clay-lime blends. Discover how to source ingredients, make test samples and choose the right type of plaster for every need.

hunt-the-hare_5aec9bee8e22c.jpg

Back for its third year, Live and Local Lunches has a new lineup of rock, folk, blues, country and jazz.

Live and Local Lunches is a partnership with the Downtown Business Improvement Area, Peterborough Square, Gerri’s Arts and Crafts, and Bench Tech to host live music outdoors every Friday for one hour starting at noon in the Peterborough Square Courtyard at the corner of Charlotte and Water streets.

"These small concerts are a great way to animate the downtown in a fun and positive way,” says

Terry Guiel, executive director of the Downtown Business Improvement Area. "They are also a real treat for all the employees who work downtown to take some time to get out of the office, grab some lunch and enjoy live music under the sunny skies."

“I get stopped all year-long and asked ‘When do you start back up again? or comments like ‘I really enjoy Fridays Downtown now,’ etc. People are stoked to see this series return for the third year,” says Kip Gordon, owner of Bench Tech. “Music connects people and cures all that ails you! Come on down and check it out —  you won't be sorry!”

“We at Gerri’s Arts & Crafts believe that the local talent in Peterborough is second to none,” says Les Manley, owner of Gerri’s Arts & Crafts. “Encompassing all genres, set in beautiful Downtown Peterborough, the open air venue is a perfect way to spend a Friday lunch.”
