Brrrr….Definitely still cold out there!! Did I say “cold”, I meant “freezing”? I heard Wiarton Willy said we’re in for an early Spring. Sure hope the little guy is right!!

Talking about the cold temperatures ….we held our 2nd Annual Winterfest on Sunday, February 15th. It was a wonderful blue sky on one of the coldest days. As you can see in the above photo, we had a real “trooper” who enjoyed skating on the pond in the beautiful sunshine.

However, most of our guests found solace indoors as they listened to lively music and created art such as healing stones, magic wands, log art and claybake forms. The children, and some of the bigger kids (Adults) enjoyed getting their faces painted by a visiting clown and receiving henna tattoos by some artistic ladies.

Indoors was alive with music and singing by various artists such as Raizelle and local talent Colin Brennan (pictured below) who has the voice of an angel.

Amara Kante, who has lead some of our drum circles, provided drum medleys for a trio of lively belly dancers. Peaches Cardenes, posing below as Isis with Amara Kante, shared hand made wish bracelets. This special group really generated a lot of energy and warmth on a cold winter’s day.

A big “Thank You” to all of our guests for attending and for the donors and volunteers who contributed to make this delightful event happen on a cold, wintery day.
