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.

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.

MUSE - Little Men
Jan

7:00 pm19:00

MUSE - Little Men

When 13-year-old Jake's (Theo Taplitz) grandfather dies, his family moves from Manhattan back into his father's old Brooklyn home. There, Jake befriends the charismatic Tony (Michael Barbieri), whose single mother Leonor (Paulina Garcia), a dressmaker from Chile, runs the shop downstairs. Soon, Jake's parents Brian (Greg Kinnear) and Kathy (Jennifer Ehle) -- one, a struggling actor, the other, a psychotherapist -- ask Leonor to sign a new, steeper lease on her store. For Leonor, the proposed new rent is untenable, and a feud ignites between the adults. At first, Jake and Tony don't seem to notice; the two boys, so different on the surface, begin to develop a formative kinship as they discover the pleasures of being young in Brooklyn. Jake aspires to be an artist, while Tony wants to be an actor, and they have dreams of going to the same prestigious arts high school together. But the children can't avoid the problems of their parents forever, and soon enough, the adult conflict intrudes upon the borders of their friendship.
