Guatemala Stove Project Fundraising Dance

7:00pm – 11:55pm
Perth Civitan Hall, door open at 7pm. Featuring “Under the Covers”. Silent Auction and snacks. Annual Guatemala Stove Project Fundraising Dance
Come on out and dance for a great cause! On Saturday, November 18 the Guatemala Stove Project is hosting a fundraising dance featuring talented local music scene stalwarts Under the Covers. This band will have you up on your feet and dancing all night.
This annual fundraiser will feature a silent auction of unique items crafted by local artisans or donated by local businesses.
The Guatemala Stove Project, a volunteer-based organization is continuing its efforts to raise funds for the construction of masonry cook stoves for impoverished, rural Mayan families. Over 6,000 stoves have been built so far creating a lasting legacy for rural families in the western highlands of Guatemala. Consider that a single stove extends the lives of each family member in a household by 10 – 15 years and reduces the amount of firewood needed by half which helps to preserve the country’s precious forests.
The Guatemala Stove Project also supports sustainable-development projects in over a dozen communities and issues micro-loans to indigenous women to start small businesses that will help lift them out of poverty. The Guatemala Stove Project recognizes the importance of education in creating opportunity and hope for the future. It provides scholarships to several students who would otherwise not have this opportunity.
You’ve heard about the GSP and maybe you have even made a donation in the past. Now is the time to show your support for the indigenous people in Guatemala. Bring your dancing shoes to the Perth Civitan Club for this fantastic licensed fundraising event! Mark the date on your calendar and get your tickets! Tickets: $20 at Shadowfax in Perth or at the door. Civitan Hall doors open at 7 p.m. Under The Covers starts playing at 8 p.m.

Perth Blue Wings to host Boston Bruins alumni this weekend

Thursday, January 14, 2016 @ 08:01 PM
posted by admin

By Dianne Pinder-Moss

If you want to take in some great hockey locally featuring an alumni team of one of the Original Six NHL teams, Michael McLean has just the ticket.

The owner and head coach of the Perth Blue Wings has arranged for the Boston Bruins alumni squad to face off against past and present members of the Blue Wings early in the new year.

The matchup is planned for the Perth & District Community Centre on Jan. 17 at 3 p.m. and McLean is hoping for a similar sellout to two years ago when the Montreal Canadiens alumni team came to town.

“The rink hadn’t seen a crowd like that in years,” he said.

While McLean thought it would be “tough to beat” the turnout for the Montreal game, he thinks it can be done by Boston because of the “amazing,” players who will be suiting up for the matchup.

Among the former NHL stars that will be in the Bruins alumni lineup are Ray Bourque who played 21 seasons with the Bruins and won five Norris Trophies as the league’s top defenceman.

“Ray Bourque is a headliner for sure,” McLean noted.

Other fan favourites that are expected to take to the ice for the Bruins on Jan. 17 are another Hockey Hall of Famer Gerry Cheevers, as well as Terry O’Reilly and Rick Middleton.  There is also the possibility, McLean says, that Hockey Night in Canada commentator Garry Galley who played for the Bruins for a few seasons during his NHL career and for the Blue Wings for part of a season in his junior hockey years will be in a Bruins’ uniform that day. If that happens, “that would be awesome,” he remarked.

As to who will be suiting up for the Blue Wings, McLean hopes to fill the roster with local players.

“Hopefully, some Perth players now with us can participate,” he remarked.

On the day of the game, the Bruins will be doing a one-hour coaching clinic with 30 players from the Perth Lanark Minor Hockey Association, starting at noon. Participating players will be selected through a draw.

Also, as was the case with the Montreal Canadiens’ matchup, a novice team will have an opportunity to play five to six minutes against the Bruins during the game.

Tickets for the game are available by calling McLean Insurance at 613-267-5100 and asking for Courtney or Kerrie. Close to 1,000 tickets are being sold with general admission seating costing $25. The $50 tickets, which included entry into the Bruins’ dressing room between the first and second periods and a photograph with the players, are already sold out.

For a cost of $100, a select number of fans can attend the game, as well as a VIP meet and greet dinner afterwards with the players at Code’s Mill.

McLean is not surprised by the interest that is being shown in the game.

“There are so many Bruins fans around here,” he stated. Already, “we’ve sold a lot of tickets in the Smiths Falls’ area.”

McLean’s desire is to see alumni squads for all of the Original Six teams in the NHL – along with Montreal and Boston, the other teams are the Detroit Red Wings, Chicago Black Hawks, Toronto Maple Leafs and New York Rangers — play on Perth ice at some point. Next on the list to approach, he says, is either Detroit or Chicago.

A die-hard Maple Leafs fan, McLean would like nothing more than to bring Toronto to town. He concedes he has had to temporarily at least put that dream on hold as the Maple Leafs currently don’t have an active alumni team.

“I’d also like to get the Ottawa Senators alumni team one of these years,” he said.

Guatemala Stove Project Fundraising Dance

7:00pm – 11:55pm
Perth Civitan Hall, door open at 7pm. Featuring “Under the Covers”. Silent Auction and snacks. Annual Guatemala Stove Project Fundraising Dance
Come on out and dance for a great cause! On Saturday, November 18 the Guatemala Stove Project is hosting a fundraising dance featuring talented local music scene stalwarts Under the Covers. This band will have you up on your feet and dancing all night.
This annual fundraiser will feature a silent auction of unique items crafted by local artisans or donated by local businesses.
The Guatemala Stove Project, a volunteer-based organization is continuing its efforts to raise funds for the construction of masonry cook stoves for impoverished, rural Mayan families. Over 6,000 stoves have been built so far creating a lasting legacy for rural families in the western highlands of Guatemala. Consider that a single stove extends the lives of each family member in a household by 10 – 15 years and reduces the amount of firewood needed by half which helps to preserve the country’s precious forests.
The Guatemala Stove Project also supports sustainable-development projects in over a dozen communities and issues micro-loans to indigenous women to start small businesses that will help lift them out of poverty. The Guatemala Stove Project recognizes the importance of education in creating opportunity and hope for the future. It provides scholarships to several students who would otherwise not have this opportunity.
You’ve heard about the GSP and maybe you have even made a donation in the past. Now is the time to show your support for the indigenous people in Guatemala. Bring your dancing shoes to the Perth Civitan Club for this fantastic licensed fundraising event! Mark the date on your calendar and get your tickets! Tickets: $20 at Shadowfax in Perth or at the door. Civitan Hall doors open at 7 p.m. Under The Covers starts playing at 8 p.m.

Perth Blue Wings to host Boston Bruins alumni this weekend

By Dianne Pinder-Moss

If you want to take in some great hockey locally featuring an alumni team of one of the Original Six NHL teams, Michael McLean has just the ticket.

The owner and head coach of the Perth Blue Wings has arranged for the Boston Bruins alumni squad to face off against past and present members of the Blue Wings early in the new year.

The matchup is planned for the Perth & District Community Centre on Jan. 17 at 3 p.m. and McLean is hoping for a similar sellout to two years ago when the Montreal Canadiens alumni team came to town.

“The rink hadn’t seen a crowd like that in years,” he said.

While McLean thought it would be “tough to beat” the turnout for the Montreal game, he thinks it can be done by Boston because of the “amazing,” players who will be suiting up for the matchup.

Among the former NHL stars that will be in the Bruins alumni lineup are Ray Bourque who played 21 seasons with the Bruins and won five Norris Trophies as the league’s top defenceman.

“Ray Bourque is a headliner for sure,” McLean noted.

Other fan favourites that are expected to take to the ice for the Bruins on Jan. 17 are another Hockey Hall of Famer Gerry Cheevers, as well as Terry O’Reilly and Rick Middleton.  There is also the possibility, McLean says, that Hockey Night in Canada commentator Garry Galley who played for the Bruins for a few seasons during his NHL career and for the Blue Wings for part of a season in his junior hockey years will be in a Bruins’ uniform that day. If that happens, “that would be awesome,” he remarked.

As to who will be suiting up for the Blue Wings, McLean hopes to fill the roster with local players.

“Hopefully, some Perth players now with us can participate,” he remarked.

On the day of the game, the Bruins will be doing a one-hour coaching clinic with 30 players from the Perth Lanark Minor Hockey Association, starting at noon. Participating players will be selected through a draw.

Also, as was the case with the Montreal Canadiens’ matchup, a novice team will have an opportunity to play five to six minutes against the Bruins during the game.

Tickets for the game are available by calling McLean Insurance at 613-267-5100 and asking for Courtney or Kerrie. Close to 1,000 tickets are being sold with general admission seating costing $25. The $50 tickets, which included entry into the Bruins’ dressing room between the first and second periods and a photograph with the players, are already sold out.

For a cost of $100, a select number of fans can attend the game, as well as a VIP meet and greet dinner afterwards with the players at Code’s Mill.

McLean is not surprised by the interest that is being shown in the game.

“There are so many Bruins fans around here,” he stated. Already, “we’ve sold a lot of tickets in the Smiths Falls’ area.”

McLean’s desire is to see alumni squads for all of the Original Six teams in the NHL – along with Montreal and Boston, the other teams are the Detroit Red Wings, Chicago Black Hawks, Toronto Maple Leafs and New York Rangers — play on Perth ice at some point. Next on the list to approach, he says, is either Detroit or Chicago.

A die-hard Maple Leafs fan, McLean would like nothing more than to bring Toronto to town. He concedes he has had to temporarily at least put that dream on hold as the Maple Leafs currently don’t have an active alumni team.

“I’d also like to get the Ottawa Senators alumni team one of these years,” he said.
