Spell-bound! Magical! Brilliant! Midsummer Night's Dream was all this and more. Congratulations to the cast and crew who put together this incredible production. It was Inie Platenius's vision that brought Shakespeare to us and North Frontenac Little Theatre did Inie proud. From mischievous Puck to the outrageous Nick Bottom, the play came alive before our eyes. The production team did a tremendous job in transforming a school auditorium into a music filled, wooded fairyland.
Once again, Sisters by Heart provided us with an amazing evening filled with music, laughter and tears. Gardening expert and Verona local, Sharon Sole, provided answers on preparing our gardens now spring is finally here. Now we know what to do with egg shells and coffee grounds. It was an information packed talk and we are all mini experts in gardening now.
Darlene Snider was the second guest speaker replacing Brenda Haggett who couldn't attend due to sickness. Darlene graciously shared her life story. She told us of the tragedies that impacted her life and changed her. Her grief did not scar her. She was able to derive strength through her faith. One of the ways she learned to cope was being grateful for all the blessings that we have in our lives.
Another tool that helped her was the Griefshare program. Griefshare creates a healing process for people grieving the loss of someone close. Each Griefshare session includes a video seminar featuring top experts on grief and recovery subjects. Darlene is hosting these free sessions. For further information contact Darlene 613-374-2676.
