Ben Caplan

65575122_1362480880572308_5330976195922100224_o.jpg

Combining timeless melodies with a contemporary folk-rock twist, singer-songwriter Ben Caplan explores the immigrant experience with profound understanding and wry humor on his latest album, Old Stock. Adapted from the acclaimed music-theater piece Old Stock: A Refugee Love Story, the genre-warping album is inspired by the true story of two Jewish Romanian refugees coming to Canada in 1908. Through their travails, Caplan weaves a captivating concept album that reflects on modern issues from immigration to religion to sexuality through his dark, funny, and urgently heartfelt songs. Old Stock: A Refugee Love Story has been an international smash hit, winning dozens of awards and performing extended theatrical runs in more than 20 cities.

Between theatre performances, Ben Caplan has been touring these songs with his magnificent band. With his enormous beard, unruly mane, intimately booming voice and beguiling charm, Caplan brings a striking presence to the stage.

Grand Opening Of 3rd “Vinnies” Thrift Shop Location

67874170_10156788883128878_2725430304369016832_o.jpg

The Society of Saint Vincent de Paul (SSVP) Peterborough will be opening a new and third "Vinnies - Feel Good Shopping" thrift store on Saturday, August 24, 2019. The new store is located at 539 George St. N., at the intersection of McDonnel St. and George St. This location is in addition to the Erskine Ave. store, which recently celebrated its 8th anniversary, as well as a second store in Lakefield on Queen St.

"We're thrilled to be opening another Vinnies," said Mike Warren, Store Committee Chair. "The local community has been incredibly supportive over the years of the work we do at the Food Pantry, and Vinnies is the key component to keeping up with demand." On the location, Warren added, “This is a central location, and along with the Erskine and Lakefield locations, we hope that Vinnies will be even more accessible to a greater number of people.”

In 2018, SSVP Peterborough served 20,042 individuals at the food pantry — over 6,700 of these clients were children.

Warren asked residents to consider SSVP Peterborough throughout the year, "When someone is cleaning out their closets, or their child grows out of their clothing, or they're moving, we hope they keep us in mind."

The George St. location will be open Monday - Friday, from 10 a.m. - 6 p.m., and Saturdays from 9:00 a.m. to 5 p.m. An accessible entrance has been incorporated, and will be completed in September.

For more information on the Grand Opening, please follow SSVP Peterborough's social media accounts, Instagram, Facebook, and Twitter using the @VinniesPtbo handle.

Comradery and Coping in the Trenches

When Little Lake Cemetery was designed back in 1850, it was designed as a place of quiet contemplation. It is we think, an ideal place to remember the horrors of the trenches, the courage and resilience of our soldiers, the terrible waste of human life. 

Join Don Down of the Western Front Association at Little Lake Cemetery as he reflects on the lives of local soldiers and considers how they may have coped with the terrors of the trenches.
