Sheenboro Irish Heritage Festival, July 24-26, 2015, Advance Tickets Available
There will be a festival this summer and we promise a fun-filled weekend with good local music and dance, a tearoom and local arts and crafts. The festival kicks off on Friday night with local fiddlers, square dancing and musicians playing at the Hotel Pontiac. On Saturday, the festival runs in Sheenboro all day under a big tent with Dominic D’Arcy kicking off the event, Louis Schryer, Gail Gavan, the Ramblin Valley Band, Erin and Siobheann Leahy and many other talented musicians and dancers. There will be a Jam session from 6:00 to 7:30 pm under the tent and all musicians and dancers are welcome. The entertainment continues into the evening with the Ryan Bros. playing from 8 pm till midnight. On Sunday, the festival will end with a mass followed by a cold lunch in the hall.
We need your help as the past festival did contribute to the parish purchasing two new stoves for the hall and we made a significant contribution to the parish funds.   If everyone donates an hour to our festival, we will lighten the load on our small group of energetic volunteers.  To volunteer, please contact Lorna Agnesi, Volunteer Coordinator at 819-689-2317 or fiddle-fingers@hotmail.com.  Keep watching our Sheenboro Heritage Festival Facebook page for updates on performers and you can see the draw prizes there too. For full day and evening admission, advance Tickets are $20 for adults and free to those under the age of 15 years old. At the gate, they are $25 so please contact any of the committee members to purchase advance tickets.

Canada Day

1) Please remember to pray for the family and friends of Laurier St. Cyr who died this past week. May his soul rest in peace.

2) Bible Study classes are finished until September. My thanks to the 7 regulars who participated in this year’s course. I look forward to resuming our journey through the scriptures with you in the fall.

3) A collective comprised of local artists will be taking over the Chapeau rectory as a workshop and studio space to display their various works of art. Hopefully, they will remain there until we put together our plans to convert the building into a hospice – a process that will take a year or two to put into effect. (FYI, a ‘hospice’ is a facility dedicated exclusively for the care of palliative care patients.)
