Bike Fundraiser

A member of the Rainbow Harmony Choir passed on the following information:

There’s an upcoming fundraising concert for Bike Winnipeg (the volunteer group advocating for better cycling infrastructure in this city).  The concert is on Saturday October 1st at WECC and should be lots of musical fun, plus a chance to hear more about cycling plans and support Bike Winnipeg’s efforts.  Here’s a link to more information.  Tickets are $15 in advance or $20 at the door.  http://bikewinnipeg.ca/event/rory-vebrugge-ruckus/#sthash.6El5K1my.dpbs

Beth is coordinating any LACE gals that would like to attend. You can email the usual praxis2121@gmail.com if you want to go to the concert!

Femfest starts today!

For the 14th year, Saraswati Productions is celebrating women playwrights! Given that the other major Playwright’s festival in Winnipeg has highlighted only ONE woman playwright in over a decade, Femfest is absolutely worth supporting.

Here’s the general info: http://sarasvati.ca/femfest/

The opening cabaret and reception, which includes music, dance and visual art,  is tomorrow (Saturday): http://sarasvati.ca/product/opening-cabaret/. Tickets are $15 plus an online handling fee.

If you’re interested in going to see “Mouthpiece” with other LACE gals on Thursday, September 22, you can email praxis2121@gmail.com.(http://sarasvati.ca/product/mouthpiece/).



Jan Smith’s Band is playing!

First things first: A reminder about the Reelpride Launch Party tonight. Here’s the info: http://reelpride.org/schedule/2016/9/9/2016-festival-program-launch-party. We’ll definitely have a group going to the October 11-16 festival. Stay tuned!

Dinners: Details are being worked out for a once-a-month dinner on either Wednesday or Thursday evening, depending on the month. October’s dinner will be on Wednesday the 5th at Bailey’s. You can email praxis2121@gmail.com if you’re going so we can let the restaurant know numbers.

OutThere Sports and Recreation is getting going again: http://outtherewinnipeg.com. We’ll post some details on specific activities in the next week or so.

Ideas for upcoming gatherings: Nuit Blanche, an evening in the Escape Rooms, historical boat tour on the river, Writer’s Festival, theatre, a film night, Poker Night, board game night, sugaring off field trip in the spring, and more.

In the meantime, have a good weekend!
