Taking the museum to new heights at a new location

Helen Halliday

From the Wright brothers to the “Right Stuff” science has been pushing the boundaries of how high, how fast, how far we can travel.

The Royal Aviation Museum of Western Canada is one of those rare gems that tells us the stories of the bravery and perseverance of bush pilots opening up the North and helps us to fully understand the sacrifices necessary to connect cultures, promote trade and economic prosperity and explore our planet in new ways. The stories are compelling and must be told and re-told, not only to honour those from the past, but inspire those who will secure our future.

CJNU, the joys of summer and Winnipeg Goldeyes

This game needs a pawsitive outcome (Bark in the Park).

By Tom Dercola

When I am looking for some relaxing entertainment, I can always count on a Goldeyes game at Shaw Park. It is an opportunity to meet with some of the Goldeyes people who make the game night a great one…from Garry at the Parking entrance to people like Andrew, one of the customer service reps.

A jewel in Kildonan Park

By Tom Dercola

Little Shop of Horrors, Rainbow Stage’s first production of the summer season could best be described as a rock horror comedy musical.

Sometimes this isn’t a bad thing, but I truly feel we should be showing our appreciation at this special time and, yes, with some noise. I chose my noisemakers to be my flowers and flags. With a bit of spray paint and some selective plant purchases, I turned my patio into a sea of red and white. Continue reading Sharing true patriot love during our celebratory year

Don some golden gloves, and make someone happy

In my elementary years I attended Laura Secord School on Wolseley Avenue. In grade six I had a classroom teacher called Blanche Coxworth. She was an amazing teacher, very committed to her students and giving them as much passion as she possessed.

One thing she taught us has stayed with me all my life. Every day before we began the school day we all had to put on our “golden gloves”, to do unto others as you would have them do unto you. Such a simple concept, yet it seems to have eluded many people in our world today. Continue reading Don some golden gloves, and make someone happy
