The much anticipated "Spring Fling" for 2017 is now in the past and from all reports, a good time was had by all.   As well as the speaker Terry Fallis, there was also a presentation by First Nations representative John MattsonJohn Watson - photo at right.  This included a demonstration of drumming and as he said, this is a common type of activity amongst a wide range of cultures.  He said that we relate to it because it's similar to the heart beat of our mothers that we heard before we were born.

There are a lot more photos and a video of the drumming here.

 

The Northumberland multi-club "Spring Fling" - now called Spring Time Celebration - will once again be held in 2017.  It will be held on 30th May 2017 Terry Fallisat the Keeler Centre in Colborne. There will be entertainment by the "Native Classical & Hoop Dancers" and a speaker.  We are pleased that the speaker will be Terry Fallis (photo at right), an award winning author of five national bestsellers including his debut novel, The Best Laid Plans which won the 2008 Stephen Leacock Medal for Humour and was crowned the 2011 winner of CBC Canada Reads as the "essential Canadian novel of the decade."

Cost is $40.00 p.p. and includes morning Coffee/Goodies and a full lunch.
