COFFEE HOUSE FUND RAISER FOR FOOD, St. Alban’s Hall, Saturday, November 8 at 7:30 pm, Cash Donation

Food for Life is a Halton based independent food recovery organization and through various volunteer agencies it delivers recovered food to low-income neighbourhoods, providing nutritious perishable food to families on a weekly basis. The volunteers at St. Alban’s Anglican Church and St. John’s United Church are pleased to offer this  food program for people in need in the Georgetown and Glen Williams area.  Learn more at www.foodforlife.ca

Food from the Heart is an outreach program in collaboration with Community Unity and St Alban’s Anglican Church. Within the Georgetown community an unfulfilled need was determined for a hot, protein rich, and nutritious meal for many who don’t have access to kitchens. Once a month a group of volunteers prepare a hot meal at a certified community kitchen, which is then served at the Georgetown Bread Basket to its clients. Although they have received the generous support of Pete’s Meats in Glen Williams, the program is in need of funding to purchase supplies of food and containers as this program grows. 

Please come out to support these worthy causes. A cash bar will be available and snacks will be sold. A small cash donation is your ticket to an evening of socializing and music.st-alban-glen-williams

CBC’s Lorne Elliott, “Stories, Comedy and Music”, John Elliott Theatre, Saturday, October 25 8-9:30 pm $30

lorne elliottCBC’s Lorne Elliott to perform at the JET

 

Canadian humourist, storyteller, musician and playwright Lorne Elliott is bringing his show of comedy and music theatre to town. For tickets go to the Box Office: www.haltonhills.ca/theatre

Elliott’s concert performance is a selection of his current monologues and songs dealing with life experience. Creating new stage material about having to redefine priorities in view of life events is a welcome challenge to this writer and stage performer, who enjoys shaking the perceived wisdom of the world around him.

His one-man show concert presentation is delightfully foolish, witty and thought-provoking. Combining dry humour with musical parodies and skits, Elliott is a shrewd observer of the human animal. Often self-deprecating, always silly and never profane, Elliott’s funny is family friendly. For the past 26 years, Elliott has been touring and performing in concert in theatres and arts centres across Canada, the U.S. and Australia. He is regularly featured on TV on such programs as The Just For Laughs Festival and Comedy Variety Specials in Canada and the US.
For 11 seasons, Madly Off In All Directions, was Elliott’s own CBC Radio Comedy Series which went on till Fall 2006.

In September, Elliott was featured as a guest on CBC Radio’s popular program, Stuart Maclean’s Vinyl Café, and he is often heard as a columnist on CBC Radio’s The Next Chapter.
