Sponsorship

Like all community events the Lions Club relies on civic minded businesses for their  support, In 2017 we introduced a new category of sponsorship called Community Champions and with their support the Club was able to operate the event. As part of their sponsorship the company names were placed on the Lions Events Trailer.

Volunteers

Each year we ask the community for help in running this event. We need over 100 volunteers to undertake a variety of  tasks, we can gurantee the best view of the parade. If you are interested please send an email to Lion Louie at louieviolo67@gmail.com

Jimmy Pearson, Singer/Songwriter/Instrumentalist, Uncorked on Main, Thursday, Nov 15 at 7 pm

It must be humble, sincere, crunchy and organic if it’s a song by Toronto Based Folk/Rock artist Jimmy Pearson. As a singer/songwriter/multi-instrumentalist, Jimmy strives to connect to thoughtful audiences with songs that embrace the pathetic and awkward facets of life.

Jimmy Pearson is a bona fide artist who crosses over several genres to reach the end goal – a connection with listeners – through expressive vocals, literary and thoughtful lyrics and a sound that is up-front and personal – in other words, Jimmy is real – Indie Spoonful

Watching Jimmy play is kind of like watching open heart surgery; it’s personal, complex, he keeps the rhythm going no matter what, and you can’t look away. With his voice, carefully crafted songs, guitar, and two kick pedals under his feet he left the audience with the feeling that there’s more going on than meets the eye. – Summerfolk Music and Crafts Festival

Jimmy has a talent for songwriting, as well as performing those songs. It’s this type of album that always gets me, as it shows the talent behind the artist when they can write songs that appeal to many genres, and this is the case for “Good Friends”. – Canadian Beats
