  Featuring Local Culinary Talent

                                     Event Proceeds to Support Public Health

                                     Nutrition Programs in Myrtle’s Kitchen

Peterborough – The Gardens of Peterborough will showcase the cooking talents of seven culinary teams from AON seniors’ residences in the “Ready Set Cook Competition” taking place on Tuesday, February 7th from 5:30p.m.-8p.m.  in the Atrium at Canterbury Gardens to support public health nutrition programs.

Teams of culinary staff from each of the seven AON locations will vie for the winning trophy by preparing a dessert course for judges and guests. Community members are invited to take part in this quest for the best overall dessert by purchasing tickets for only $25,  enabling them to sample all seven options.  All proceeds will support public health programs in Myrtle’s Community Kitchen, that is located at the Peterborough Health’s (PPH) location at Jackson Square on 185 King Street.

Myrtle’s Kitchen is named in memory of Myrtle Smith, the matriarch of AON’s Smith family.  Programs delivered in Myrtle’s Kitchen improve the quality of life of our community by establishing a regional, shared meeting place where people can come together to access healthy food and learn valuable life skills.  These public health programs help create food security for vulnerable residents together with community partners, as well as teach nutrition and safe food handling.

This is the 2nd year for the event which last year featured unique appetizer dishes and raised monies for this worthwhile cause in the process.   Last year’s winning appetizer was a Homemade Rosemary Infused Ricotta Baked in a Phyllo Pastry Triangle with Tri Colour Beet Salad and Double Smoked Maple Bacon Batons.  

“Sharing good food is virtually synonymous with building community, so we are thrilled to be able to offer a unique event that brings together culinary excellence in support of public health programming,” said Vicki Coppins, Director of Dining Services of AON Inc.  “This event will also give guests a chance to meet the chefs who create the menus for the enjoyment of residents at each of The Gardens of Peterborough locations.”

Professional judges from Fleming College and Catering Plus will decide the winner.  This event is being organized to honour national “Food Service Professionals Awareness Week” promoted by the Canadian and Ontario Societies of Nutrition Management.

Tickets are available online by visiting www.peterborough.snapd.com and searching for “Ready Set Cook”, or by visiting any Gardens of Peterborough location (see list below) or calling Vicki Coppins, Director of Dining Services at 705-876-1414 for more information.

International Women’s Day Conference

On Wednesday, March 8, 2017, the Women’s Business Network of Peterborough (WBN) will host an International Women’s Day Conference at Ashburnham Reception Centre. Considered the first of its kind in the region, this event will be a unique opportunity to share and advance knowledge and empower participants to strengthen outcomes for women, their families, their communities and the economy.

“The International Women’s Day global theme is “Be Bold for Change,” and one of the objectives of the WBN in hosting this event is to advance its mission, which is to strengthen our community by supporting, empowering and inspiring women in business, beyond the boundaries of our regular monthly meetings,” says Louise Racine, WBN program director and International Women’s Day conference committee chair.

This year’s conference theme will be “Inspire. Empower. Act!” The focus is to inspire attendees by showcasing the experiences and stories of the speakers and facilitators; to bring together members of the community to learn more about the people and opportunities around them, to share their talents and perspectives; and to candidly explore ways to overcome some of the existing obstacles that continue to affect the lives of girls and women every day.

“The goal of this event is to bring women together for an entire day to be inspired, be empowered, and leave with some ideas on how they might take action to reach their personal and professional goals. The interactive workshop and panel topics have been selected to address a wide range of women’s issues, including, but not exclusively, business-related,” adds Racine.

Speaker lineup features Candy Palmater, CBC radio host, recovered lawyer and feminist comic; Sarah Vermunt, professional coach, career expert, former business professor, and author; and Linda Kash, veteran actress and improv performer.

 

Attendees will also get to participate in two 90-minute workshops from six available sessions in between speaker presentations to inspire action and create momentum for a more equitable and just society.

  • Volunteerism, & Conscious Consumerism
  • Lead”HER”ship – Discovering your “True North”
  • Moving Through Adversity
  • Song & Drum Circle
  • Financial Literacy
  • Imposter Syndrome

International Women's Day was originally conceived to celebrate the social, economic, cultural and political achievement of women. At this event, the WBN hopes to celebrate what local women have achieved, and encourage tomorrow's female leaders to aim even higher and make greater change.

LeE HARVeY OsMOND at Market Hall

LeE HARVeY OsMOND at Market Hall

Presented by Market Hall

There's so much creative energy coursing through Lee Harvey Osmond's veins, he can't contain it all in one form of expression — or even one identity. Which is why the Hamilton, Ontario, man known as Tom Wilson has forged an alter-ego from a pop-culture mash-up of JFK's killer and the famed family of singing Mormons. That's in addition to his identification since the ‘90s as a member of now-defunct Canadian rock band Junkhouse and the very-much-alive Americana entity of Blackie & the Rodeo Kings.

Wilson has used the Osmond moniker for three solo albums, including his 2015 Latent Recordings release Beautiful Scars, produced by the Cowboy Junkies' Michael Timmins. The songs on Beautiful Scars take more zigs and zags than a stitch job on a bad cut. Aaron Goldstein's crying pedal steel might segue into Michael Davidson's cool vibraphone notes or harmonies by Andrea Ramolo, who duets with Wilson on the beguiling, yet melancholy “Hey Hey Hey.” “Shake the Hand” echoes with funk and twang, while the fluttery flute groove brass/woodwind player Darcy Hepner blows in “Black Spruce” sounds as if it could have flown out of Creed Taylor's ‘70s CTI jazz catalog. The delicate “Dreams Come and Go” casts a glow on Wilson's rich, unvarnished baritone and accomplished picking, not to mention the potential of his co-writer and harmony vocalist, son Thompson. (He's also heard on “Planet Love.”) On the creepy, haunting — and quite compelling — “Oh, the Gods,” Wilson's whispers combine with drum rhythms, keyboard twiddles, electric guitar notes and other sonic effects to achieve an almost meditative drone.

Intro to Tap Dance

Intro to Tap Dance

The Theatre on King is happy to welcome back Dianne Latchford and her class Intro to Tap Dance starting Monday, January 9th, 2017 from 7pm - 8:30pm and running every Monday through February 13th. Only $10 per class or $50 for all 6 classes! Sweet deal!

Haven’t you always wanted to try tap dance? It looks like so much fun. Well – here’s the good news – it is! 

Come and learn the basics in a relaxed and supportive atmosphere. If you have tap shoes – great! If you don’t, just bring along some hard-soled shoes that bend enough to allow you to stand on the ball of your foot (i.e. not running shoes, and not stiff thick-soled boots – think “men’s dress shoes” and you’ve got the right idea). We’ll be starting right at the beginning, so don’t be intimidated – come on out and give it a try! It’s a pretty good workout too.

Dianne Latchford is a veteran actor/singer/musician with over 30 years of professional experience.

Hogmanay
Jan

1:00 pm13:00

Hogmanay

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 atHutchison House with aHogmanay celebration from 1 to 4 p.m. on, January 1, 2016. Admission prices: adults $5.00; children $2.00; family rate $15.00 (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.
