Old Church Theatre – Home of the Roy Bonisteel Studio

Update-10_243

I have written about the Old Church Theatre under the heading Local Fun on my homepage of my Blog.  But I wanted to put it out as a independent Blog so people could read about this wonderful venue for entertainment.  This is, without question, one of my favourite places to go for entertainment.  The church is old and started in 1876 as a Methodist Church.  In 1994, Roy Bonisteel purchased, renovated and restored the building.  Today, Lesley Bonisteel and Brian Weston ensure there is a variety of musical entertainment as well as plays and other activities.  If you are in the local area, this is a place you must visit.

Warkworth Lilac Festival – May 2018

Update-1_233

The Warkworth Lilac Festival is held every year in May.   Warkworth is a cute town hosting several events throughout the year.  Art in the Park, Maple Syrup Festival, Pie Baking Contest and of course the Lilac Festival, to name a few.

They also have the Warkworth Lilac Festival Photo Contest, which Clint and I both entered.  You can enter 3 photos of anything and/or 2 photos of lilacs.  Entry fee is $30.  I did not have any lilac photos so I put in 3 of my other ones.  We went to the festival this year as one of my photos was selected as one of the 25 finalists.   The link for the Photo Contest (above) has a slide show of all  the photos entered, winners and finalists.

Ghost Town Blues Band – April 6, 2017 Belleville Club

Last night we went to the Belleville Club to listen to a terrific band.  This band called Ghost Town Blues Band is from Memphis and they were asked to come and perform in this city.  How lucky were we?  These guys are great and I would go and see them perform again in a heartbeat!  They played for almost 3 hours and I’m pretty sure they would have played all night, they seemed to truly enjoy what they were doing.

Maple in the County – March 2017

Maple in the County !  or as I like to call it – Maplelicious !   And by County, of course I mean, Prince Edward County.  This event takes place every year Saturday/Sunday.  We went Saturday morning; our first stop was Campbells Orchards .  We usually buy our apples here in the fall of the year; but today we had raspberry chocolate scones and apple cinnamon muffins !

Then on to Walt’s Sugar Shack !!  Clint took a photo of me with Maple Bear.  Yes Maple Bear, not Honey……Hey I didn’t name him !   It was a kind of drizzly cool day, well cold for me !   But that didn’t stop the crowds of people.

Belleville Model Railroad Club March 2017

DSCN4721

So this was something quite interesting.  A trip to the Model Railroad Club in Belleville.  It was pretty awesome !   200 feet of railroad track.  They even had little miniature traffic lights that worked !   A tiny little campground with trailers and even one little trailer with an awning.  I’m going to use the word “little” a lot here, so sorry about that!!
