It Takes A Village…

April 19, 2018

Janet Klees’ inspiring stories of developing support for families with someone having an intellectual disability demonstrated the crucial importance of community participation. Jon, for example, is a young man who loves to shred paper and now has several regular paying customers giving him the means to pursue his love of travel.  Tiffany’s watercolours hang in a city hall and she is an active member of a local artists guild.

Janet Klees 

These are just two of many examples Janet gave of people whose lives are not being defined by their disabilities because communities care and created possibilities.  She has found “identifying common interests that people have and supporting how to actively share them can establish lasting rewarding experiences”.

 

The core means of achieving these results has been family support groups that realize together they have “immense capacity” to make things happen.

 

Following Janet’s presentation, it was decided to start a family support group in Fenelon Falls.

 

ABLE meeting: If you are a family member, friend or caregiver of someone with intellectual disabilities, you are invited to join our newly formed family/community-driven support network, ABLE (Access to Better Living Experiences), and to attend our upcoming meeting on Wednesday, April 18, 7 pm, St. James Anglican Church, 7 Bond Street E, Fenelon Falls ON. The meeting will be an opportunity to get to know each other, and discuss principles by which to ensure our family member can live life fully as a cherished citizen of our community.

Easter Eggstravaganza: A Sweet Execution

April 5, 2018

The Easter Eggstravaganza last weekend was a huge hit, seeing kids of all ages come out participate in the hunt.

The day began at Easter Bunny Headquarters, aka Slices n’ Scoops, where kids were treated to festive cookie decorating and a craft – making a bunny nose and whiskers mask. From there, they were each given a map of stores to visit in order to search for eggs inside, and they descended on the town in a mad frenzy for chocolate!

Back at Slices n’ Scoops, after returning their egg hunting map in for candy, kids could pet and hold real bunnies, who I’m sure enjoyed the Easter Eggstravaganza experience.

It was a great day in town and it was great to see lots of smiling faces behind those bunny whiskers. Special thanks to the Events Committee for their awesome volunteer efforts at making this event happen for the businesses and kids in town, and thanks to Anna Radey of Slices n’ Scoops for taking the lead. See you next year!

 

 

New Gallery on Colborne Street

April 5, 2018

A new artspace has emerged in the heart of Fenelon in the Colborne Street Gallery. Gallery owners Tim Wisener and Chris Van Lierop originally secured the space at 44 Colborne Street thinking that it would be a good spot for consulting with clients they work with through their design firm, Home by Tim + Chris.

Since then, their plans have evolved, and they chose to transform the space into an art gallery where they plan to feature works by both local and non-local artists. In order to host beautiful works of art, Tim and Chris first had to beautify their space. They did an excellent job at accomplishing that task by removing the drop ceiling and adding a high lofted ceiling, refurbishing the original floor grates, and removing 7 layers of flooring to recover the original maple hardwood floors beneath.

For now, the walls boast pieces of work from Tim and Chris’ own personal collection. It’s a lovely and personal glimpse into their artistic tastes, and while the pieces aren’t technically for sale, if you name the right price you may be in luck.

In addition to lining the walls with their own favourite pieces, Tim and Chris are currently hosting pieces by local artisan Christina Handley of Handley Acres Custom Creations. Along with a 4-foot vintage sawblade that has been designed and cut with stallions all over, there is an intricately carved oil tank, which casts gorgeous shadows on the walls and ceiling when lit up.

Tim and Chris are working with Christina to bring in more of her intricate artistic pieces, which she creates by drawing free-hand designs onto metal using soapstone, and she then cuts out shapes with a plasma cutter. We can also look forward to featured work in the gallery from local Sturgeon Point painter and sculptor Elizabeth Barrett, and many more to come.

The firm opening date for the gallery space is still to be determined, but the space promises much more than just Canadian art; Tim and Chris hope to also host paint nights and art classes, and they are open to hosting small community events there as well. Stay tuned to their space on Colborne Street for more as we head into the spring and summer seasons this year.

Also keep an eye out for the Home by Tim + Chris design studio to pop up soon – if you are looking for a keen eye for re-designing your home, Tim and Chris will soon be the go-to designers in Kawartha Lakes.

“Runnin’ Rhonda” named Ambassador for Canal Pursuit for Mental Health

March 22, 2018

The Canal Pursuit for Mental Health is a 750 kilometer run along the Trent Severn and Rideau Canals in Ontario to raise awareness and funds for the Mood Disorders Society of Canada. This year marks the 4th annual Canal Pursuit for Mental Health run, and local resident Rhonda Ingram-Empey has been named an Ambassador for the run and its mission.

Photo from Rhonda Ingram-Empey’s Facebook

Rhonda is a force of positive energy, and this is evident in her Facebook feed which is full of encouraging words to her friends and followers. “Running is my own personal journey,” says Rhonda, “in the last 8 years running has changed my whole life: mentally, physically, and spiritually.” Rhonda hopes to encourage others to push themselves to live a healthier lifestyle and use exercise to combat mood disorders, like depression and anxiety.

Rhonda first heard of this epic run and fundraiser when she met Clay Williams, the organizer and runner “a few years ago, at different races, and he was just such a quiet and humble gentleman. I had heard of his organization, the Canal Pursuit for Mental Health, and I first followed Clay on his 750 km run 2 years ago and caught up with him when he stopped in Fenelon Falls. This year, he is splitting up the runs, and reaching out to local runners to have them plan something in their communities.”

Rhonda hopes to get lots of people, not just runners, involved in the event. The portion of the Canal Pursuit for Mental Health that runs through Fenelon Falls, led by Rhonda, will be here on Monday, August 21st. If you would like to get involved with fundraising and running for this great cause, visit the Canal Pursuit for Mental Health Facebook page here.

Author Activist to Help Launch Family Support Group

March 22, 2018

submitted by Fenelon Forward and ABLE (Access to Better Living Experiences)

Parents of children with intellectual or other significant disabilities need to provide an exceptional level of ongoing support not only during childhood but also throughout adulthood. Will he or she be able to live safely and happily anywhere but in your home? And what will support look like as you age yourself?

Janet Klees is an internationally known author and speaker who has worked with families in Durham Region for 30 years. She believes there are creative solutions for families, when housing is seen as a community issue, and when busy families share ideas and experiences about their family member’s unique needs, interests and aspirations.

At the invitation of Fenelon Forward and a new local initiative called ABLE, Ms Klees will share her insights in Fenelon Falls, at St. James Anglican Church, April 4, 7 p.m., giving participants an opportunity to consider new possibilities with the support of others in similar situations.

“Some people might think that if we’re bringing families together, the most reasonable thing that would come out of that would be 5 or 6 families joining together and building something where everyone would live together,” says Ms Klees. “But that doesn’t necessarily meet the needs of either the people looking for housing or the community.”

In nearby Durham, families come together on a regular basis to share their experiences and find solutions among themselves or from what might be happening elsewhere. “What are we hearing about innovative or good ways that people are securing housing every day? What are some ideas that people have around the patterns of support where their sons and daughters would live well? And what do we know is happening on the social housing front in the broader community?” Such discussions have put several families well on the road to solutions tailored to their family’s needs and resources.

Anyone supporting family members or friends with disabilities is encouraged to come and hear Janet Klees, and join this important discussion. For more information, call 705-887-9755.

“Building vibrant and diverse communities,” adds Ms Klees, “can only happen when the folks that we’re supporting become a part of the community because of their gifts and what they have to contribute, not because of their disability.”

Little Free Library opens in Fenelon

March 22, 2018

Written by Helen Robinson

The first Little Free Library in Fenelon Falls is now officially open for business!

IMG_6971The Fenelon Falls Little Free Library was constructed as part of a Rotary District 7010 project to promote reading to all members of our community. Professional photographer Karen Suggitt of Baddow Road Photography and her pictures are featured on the walls of the Little Free Library.

Little Free Libraries is a non-profit organization originally established in Wisconsin in 2009.  This past year, District 7010 Rotary International (of which Fenelon Falls is a member) focused their attention on Little Free Libraries in our District.  They were inspired by community gift-sharing networks, “TAKE A BOOK, LEAVE A BOOK” collections in coffee shops and public spaces.

Access to the library is available when the Community Centre is open.  The Community Centre seemed an appropriate site for placement as there are a variety of groups that use the community Centre for a range of activities. We hope that the Little Free Library will have books for all reading tastes.

Your Little Free Library can be found in the Lobby of The Fenelon Falls Community Centre (adjacent to the door leading to the Rotary Room).

Award-Winning Landscape Designers Move to Fenelon Falls

A sneak peek of Midnight in Paris, featuring Miss Kawartha – Photo by Rpbin Burrows.

In 2016, landscape designers Bruno Cantieni and Julie Moore won the Canada Blooms award for “Outstanding Use of Innovative Elements in a Garden.” In 2017 Bruno and Julie relocated, choosing to settle permanently in Fenelon Falls “in order to enjoy a more nurturing, peaceful and creative environment in support of our artistic goals.”

Bruno and Julie are returning to Canada Blooms this year to present a new feature garden called “Midnight in Paris,” which promises to showcase their Kawartha-influenced creativity: the garden features a striking sculpture that Bruno has created, named “Miss Kawartha.”

Julie and Bruno are the partners behind the landscape design firm Modern Landscape Designers and you can read more about their feature garden as well as their other works here on Julie’s website. Julie says that Midnight in Paris is inspired by “the movie Midnight in Paris which evokes a life of romantic imagination coupled with an appreciation for landscape artistry.” The feature garden will also incorporate an “innovative greenhouse styling” and custom stonework.

As for Miss Kawartha, Bruno says that he was influenced by sculptor Auguste Rodin, whose most famous piece of work is The Thinker. The sculpture, carved from an expanded polystyrene foam block, is a showpiece in the Midnight in Paris feature garden.

Gardening enthusiasts who are making the trip to Canada Blooms this year are encouraged to stop by and see Julie and Bruno, and of course Miss Kawartha. Stay tuned for an upcoming interview with the award-winning landscape design duo in a future edition of the Town Crier.

Christine Buchanan: Local Hero

March 7, 2018

Written by Geoff Coleman

The Canadian Red Cross recognizes November as CPR awareness month, and on November 6, Fenelon Falls resident, Christine Buchanan took that designation to heart. Or, more specifically, to John Morrow’s heart.

At his home, and experiencing chest pain and shortness of breath, the 79-year old Morrow phoned his wife Linda, asking her to leave work and drive him to the hospital. By the time she made the 5-minute ride to their house, he had suffered a heart attack and collapsed at the end of their driveway. Like most of us, Linda and others present were not trained in emergency first aid. A neighbour on the scene had started chest compressions with the help of 911 operator, but Morrow was not responding.

By all accounts, John was dead when Christine Buchanan drove past the scene seconds later. Having had training in CPR, and seeing the severity of the situation, she parked on the shoulder and took over the resuscitation efforts.
“He was not breathing, I couldn’t find a pulse, and his skin was purple,” recalls Buchanan. However, after a few minutes of chest compressions, he drew a breath. He was not able to keep breathing but encouraged by that one breath, Ms. Buchanan continued administering CPR and minutes later he was taking shallow and laboured breaths.

IMG_4077

John Morrow and Christine Buchanan

At that time the ambulance pulled up, and paramedics applied a defibrillator while Buchanan continued the chest compressions. In moments Morrow had vital signs and was breathing on his own when he was loaded into the ambulance.

John’s wife, Linda likes to call Ms. Buchanan his guardian angel, and without her efforts, the situation would have been very different. At the very least, even if paramedics had revived him when they arrived, there would certainly have been damage to Morrow’s brain.

Ms. Buchanan first received training through her employer about ten years ago and was recertified in each of the ensuing seven years. She followed that up on her own dime three years ago with CPR/AED and First Aid courses. Prior to this event, she had never put her training to work, but she credits the comprehensive nature of the courses she took for allowing her to act decisively and effectively.

“CPR training teaches you to react, so that’s what I did. I saw a small group of people at the end of the driveway as I approached the scene and that just looked odd. Then I saw someone’s feet…not standing. So that really caught my eye”, explained Ms. Buchanan with a wry laugh. “When I saw his skin tone I knew that something was really wrong. I asked if they needed my help, and the years of training just came to the surface.”

Events like this underscore the value of CPR training specifically and first aid training in general. If, like Linda Morrow, this incident inspires you to take a CPR course, there are a number running in this area.

Red Cross is advertising a CPR/AED (automated external defibrillation) course on April 7 and April 26, and St. John’s Ambulance offers CPR-A with AED on March 24, April 10 and 14, and May 5 and 15. CPR-A teaches CPR techniques to be used on adult casualties and is suited to workplaces/household that don’t include children. All courses are held in Lindsay. For more information visit the St. John’s Ambulance site for Lindsay and Kawartha Lakes.

Local Market News by Brian Rump – Fenelon’s Population Growth

February 22, 2018

Brought to you by the Fenelon Falls & District Chamber of Commerce 

This is the second article in our local market series.

 

FFDCC Logo JPEG copyAs we continue discussing the business market in Fenelon Falls, we will look at some of the demographic characteristics of the trade area. Last time, we discussed the total population in the trade area was about 14,500. Over the next several issues, we will dig deeper and deeper into some of the characteristics of this group, and discuss how it could influence your business, or your plans to develop a new business.

 

Throughout the market analysis study, the Fenelon Falls trade area is compared to the City of Kawartha Lakes, and also to the province of Ontario. This comparison allows us to see what is similar to other areas, and what is truly unique. The potential impact on business is that caution needs to be exercised when choosing what business models to replicate in Fenelon Falls.

 

When we look at the total population in Fenelon Falls and consider population growth, the rate of population change over 2015 to 2018 is anticipated to be 1.2% in Fenelon Falls, compared to 1.3% in City of Kawartha Lakes, and 1.4% in Ontario. Over 2018 to 2020, this is 1.1% Fenelon Falls, and 1.3% for City of Kawartha Lakes and Ontario. We can also compare this to the number of households, and their growth. Over 2015 to 2018 households will grow 5.1% in Fenelon Falls, 5.4% in City of Kawartha Lakes, and 5.3% in Ontario. Over 2018-2020 this will be 3.2% Fenelon Falls and 3.4% City of Kawartha Lakes and Ontario.

 

There are a few interesting points here. One is that the population growth is growing slower than the households. This means we are creating more houses than people. This would again support the argument that this is a retirement community. It is also interesting to note that Fenelon Falls is not growing at the same rate as City of Kawartha Lakes or Ontario.

 

So what does this mean for business?

 

If your business model is depending on population growth, then you should expect to see slower growth versus similar businesses in other parts of Ontario. We will see less people in every house, so our population density will not be growing. If you own a retail store, you will be more likely to see one or two people getting out of their vehicle than a whole family tumbling out of a minivan.

 

So now that we have discussed the characteristics of population and growth in Fenelon Falls, how does this impact your current business strategy? Will you make any enhancements? If you are planning to start a business, does this change anything? As always, please let us know what you think, so we can continue to discuss business in Fenelon Falls.

A Meditative Walk in the Park – Films by the Falls February Movie “Meditation Park”

February 8, 2018
Meditation-Park-bannerMina Shum directs an all-star cast — including Cheng Pei Pei, Sandra Oh, Tzi Ma, and Don McKellar — in her latest feature, about a devoted wife and mother (Pei Pei) who is forced to reassess her reverence for her husband after she finds another woman’s thong in his laundry. In Meditation Park, Mina Shum returns to the themes that propelled her early work. The film opens with Maria (Cheng Pei Pei) hosting a birthday celebration for her workaholic accountant husband, Bing, (Tzi Ma). Maria reveres Bing and remains in awe of the sacrifices he has made for the family, so much so that she even respects his insistence that she not speak to their son.

But when she finds evidence that Bing may not be the perfect person she believes him to be, she’s forced to consider her world in a radically different light. Maria embarks on a journey of self-discovery by engaging with the world around her, something Bing has always discouraged. She befriends a group of local eccentrics and a rather shady neighbour, Gabriel (Don McKellar). Maria soon realizes that people’s lives are much more complicated than Bing has led her to believe.

Shum exhibits genuine compassion with her insight into the experiences of first-generation immigrant women (including showing how men control their wives by discouraging them from social interaction and learning other languages).

Meditation Park is a charming and generous film, boasting fine performances by its leads and great support by McKellar, Liane Balaban (in an affecting and lovely cameo), and the star of Shum’s debut, Double Happiness, the phenomenal Sandra Oh, as Maria’s daughter.

The screening date is Tuesday, February 27th — Doors open at 6:30 pm and the Movie starts at 7:30 pm at FFSS. Tickets are available in advance at Grr8 Finds Market or at the Box Office on the night of event.

Kennel opens its doors in Fenelon Falls

February 7, 2018

JurassicBark_TownCrierImage1

Dionna and Patrick Wylde love dogs.

So after hearing from many that there is a need in the district for another kennel, they decided to turn their love of the four-legged friend into a business venture.

They opened the doors to “Jurassic Bark Kennels”—located on 28 forested acres on the outskirts of Fenelon Falls—this January.

“It’s something we have thought about for quite a while,” said Dionna.

They got started on constructing the building to house their canine guests two years ago, but did plenty of research prior to that.

“We wanted to do it right,” she stressed, saying they visited a number of kennels nearby to get an idea of their facilities and how they operated.

JurassicBark_TownCrierImage2The 700 square foot building has 7 sleeping areas, each with their own individual outdoor runs accessible by a custom made doggy door that can be opened without entering the pen.

“Sometimes dogs are not friendly with anyone except their owner, or it just takes them a while to adjust,” noted Wylde.

“Sometimes they are frightened so we wanted to set it up so no one gets hurt,” she explained, adding she can simply use the pulley mechanism to raise the door while staying outside the pen.

“Jurassic Bark Kennels” also boasts a small reception area, a food prep area and a full service grooming salon.

There is a fully fenced common area at the side of the building which serves as a play area for the dogs and a multi-acre fenced paddock for longer romps. This summer they plan on constructing a doggy jungle gym complete with ramps, houses and a small pool for their guests to cool off.

“We’re really looking forward to having the play area for the dogs,” she noted.

The couple also has trails where they will take dogs for nature walks—for an added fee.

“They really like the trails,” Wylde remarked.

They already have had a few guests, and have enjoyed getting to know the few dogs that have been there to date. But they really are hoping the pens will start to fill up.

“We hadn’t been really promoting it too much yet because we wanted to make sure everything was ready and we needed approval from the City. Now that is done and we have our licence. We are very excited to open our doors,” Dionna explained.

The kennel offers daycare as well as boarding – both short term and long term. Fees for the kennel will be very comparable to others in the area. Guests are accepted by appointment only.

“Jurassic Bark Kennels” is located at 18 Fell’s Point Road, just off of Northline Road.

Heading north out of Fenelon on Hwy. 121, turn left onto Northline Road, then left again onto Fell’s Point Road. The driveway will be the first one on your right.

For more information, or to book your stay or your furry friend’s “spaw” day, call 705-887-6597 or 705-340-2925, or email info@jurassicbark.ca. You can also visit their Facebook page – “Jurassic Bark Kennels” and view photos and news.

 

Curling Club Raises Awareness for Alzheimer’s

January 24, 2018

A Tribute to Dana, a Bonspiel to raise awareness and money for the Alzheimer’s Society, was held at the Fenelon Falls Curling Club on Saturday January 13, which was also Dana’s birthday. Curlers came together for a day of learning about how to keep your brain healthy and for friendly competition. The FFCC curling members put on a delicious meal, contributed draw prizes for the table and curled in the bonspiel. There was entertainment all afternoon by Marc Ekins, Dana’s son. Dana’s siblings, 3 sisters and 1 brother, came from Gravenhurst for the occasion, and Dana’s husband John played in the bonspiel. Fenelon Falls Curling Club managed to raise $2,400.00 for the Alzheimer’s Society. Thanks to all the club members; the Fenelon Falls Curling Club, the club with a big heart.

Greetings from Dana, New Editor of the Town Crier

January 10, 2018

Meet your new editor, Dana Deathe

Greetings and Salutations!

the book ladyYou may have met me in town before, and you may know that I am the new owner of The Book Lady in Fenelon. You may know that I spent my whole life cottaging here, and that I moved here from Calgary last spring. It’s safe to say that I think Fenelon Falls is a pretty special place.

You may not know, though, that my family has a long history in this area; my great-grandfather was a minister here, and he built the cottage that I grew up enjoying. On the other side of my family, my grandparents spent their summers on Sturgeon Lake where my mother grew up before she and my dad committed, perhaps equally, to each other and to the shores of Cameron Lake.

I am so excited to be a part of this community and when I arrived I immediately started looking for ways to get involved. I’m thrilled to be the Communications Director on the board of the Fenelon Falls & District Chamber of Commerce, and now I have the pleasure of communicating directly with you via this fantastic newsletter.

If you’d ever like to chat with me about anything (especially books, I love talking about books!) please do drop by the bookstore one day soon.

 

Until next time!

Local Market News by Brian Rump – Fenelon’s Trade Area

January 10, 2018

Brought to you by the Fenelon Falls & District Chamber of Commerce 

FFDCC Logo JPEG copyOver the past several years, members of the Fenelon Falls community have been involved in multiple economic development initiatives working to strengthen businesses, and the whole community as an excellent place to live. Initiatives have included the creation and development of Fenelon Forward, a Business Retention and Expansion Project, and most recently, the Downtown Revitalization program. Community members have partnered with City of Kawartha Lakes Economic Development, and have benefited from provincial funding through Rural Economic Development and Federal funding through the Eastern Ontario Development Program. These initiatives have engaged dozens of volunteers, and resulted in several successful projects (The Town Crier being but one example).

As part of the Downtown Revitalization project, a Market Analysis of Fenelon Falls was conducted. The full report is available through City of Kawartha Lakes Economic Development (you can find it here), and contains 55 pages of detailed information about Fenelon Falls.

This year, we would like to bring to you some of the highlights of this report, especially those that pertain to business. If you already have a business in Fenelon Falls, how can you use this information to grow? If you’d like to have a business in Fenelon Falls, how can this information help you with your business plan?

We will cover topics such as our trade area, the daytime population, income distribution, consumer habits, business mix and identified gaps. We will provide some perspective of the data, maybe challenge it, and hopefully spark some discussion about how it can be used to grow and strengthen the community. We would love you hear your feedback, get questions, or ideas for future topics of discussion (see below for contact information).

So without further ado, here is our first of the series…

 

Fenelon Falls’ Trade Area

Who shops in Fenelon Falls?

Fenelon Trade AreaAs part of the Fenelon Falls market analysis, a survey was conducted to define the trade area for the downtown retail and services businesses. A trade area is defined as the geographic area in which the majority (in this case 75%) of existing and potential customers reside. The survey results were analyzed using Geographic Information Systems.

The trade area includes Fenelon Falls, Bobcaygeon, the entire north shore of Sturgeon Lake, all of Cameron Lake, the whole east side of Balsam Lake, over to Glenarm, and down to the north of Lindsay. This is a wide area that includes much more than Fenelon Falls. The area is 461 square kilometers, with a population of approximately 14,500

So why does this matter?

When thinking of the Village of Fenelon Falls, the population is often quoted as 1,800 permanent residents. We know this swells during the summer months, and we know that there is some impact from the surrounding area, but this analysis uses data from 75% of customers of existing businesses to show that Fenelon Falls draws customers from a wider area, with a population of about 14,500.

As you build your business plan, there are implications to structuring your business to serve 1800 residents, with a seasonal swell versus 14,500 residents with a seasonal swell.

Another implication is marketing and advertising. Do you only target the Village of Fenelon Falls? Or do you include the residents of the wider area? Bobcaygeon is clearly within the trade area, so how do you engage them?

What about Lindsay? Residents there are just outside of the trade area, but includes a larger population density that could be targeted more easily than, for example, the GTA.

What about tourism? We often tout City of Kawartha Lakes as a tourism destination, but if 75% of customers come from the Fenelon Falls Trade area, how many of the other 25% come from further afield? Does your marketing budget reflect this?

If your business was faced with a choice between increasing your sales 10% from customers within the trade area, or increasing your sales 10% from customers outside your trade area, which would you choose?

So now that we understand where 75% of Fenelon Falls customers reside, the next step will be learning more about them, and their behaviours, so we can better adapt our business plans to reflect the market. Watch for this in future editions of the Town Crier.

Films by the Falls – January Movie

January 10, 2018

FENELON FALLS, ON – On July 27, 1890, a gaunt figure stumbled down a drowsy high street at twilight in the small French country town of Auvers. The man was carrying nothing; his hands clasped to a fresh bullet wound leaking blood from his belly. This was Vincent van Gogh, then a little known artist; now the most famous artist in the world. His tragic death has long been known, what has remained a mystery is how and why he came to be shot. LOVING VINCENT tells that story. Films by the Falls and the Kawartha Lakes Film Circuit are very pleased to feature this film on Tuesday January 30th, 2018 at our monthly screening held at Fenelon Falls Secondary School.

2

Loving Vincent is the world’s first fully oil painted feature film. Written and directed by Dorota Kobiela & Hugh Welchman, produced by BreakThru Films and Trademark Films.

The film brings the paintings of Vincent van Gogh to life to tell his remarkable story. Every one of the 65,000 frames of the film is an oil-painting hand-painted by 125 professional oil-painters who travelled from all across the world to the Loving Vincent studios in Poland and Greece to be a part of the production. As remarkable as Vincent’s brilliant paintings, is his passionate and ill- fated life, and mysterious death.

No other artist has attracted more legends than Vincent van Gogh. Variously labelled a martyr, a lustful satyr, a madman, a genius and a layabout, the real Vincent is at once revealed in his letters, and obscured by myth and time. Vincent himself said in his last letter: ‘We cannot speak other than by our paintings’. We take him at his word and let the paintings tell the real story of Vincent van Gogh.

Loving Vincent was first shot as a live action film with actors, and then hand-painted over frame- by-frame in oils. The final effect is an interaction of the performance of the actors playing Vincent’s famous portraits, and the performance of the painting animators, bringing these characters into the medium of paint. Loving Vincent stars famous faces to match the famous paintings they portray: Douglas Booth, Eleanor Tomlinson, Jerome Flynn, Saorise Ronan, Chris O’Dowd, John Sessions, Aidan Turner, Helen McCrory, and introducing theatre actor Robert Gulaczyk in his first film role as Vincent van Gogh.

Tickets for ‘Loving Vincent” will be available at the door or in advance at Sweet Bottoms Coffee House (starting January 23rd) 19 Colborne Street, Fenelon Falls at $10 per ticket. Doors open at 6:45 PM with the feature presentation beginning at 7:30 PM. Fenelon Falls Secondary School is located at 66 Lindsay St. Fenelon Falls, Ontario.

SantaDay General Slider 2017

how best to enjoy your Santa Day

On Saturday, November 25, 2017, Santa Day will effectively take over our village, to the delight of all! We’ve been consulting with Santa’s Elves and here are a few tips and tricks to make your visit to Fenelon Falls on Santa Day the best it can be.

Santa Day Headquarters – Video Image, 10 Colborne St.
(near the woodcarver by Stokes on Trent)

Cartoon by Laurie Rockman, Kawartha Lakes; www.mugshotscards.com

Video Image on Colborne Street will house the main hub of Santa Day organization, along with the Lost and Found. It is great relief to know there is one spot to go to if you have any questions, need any assistance, or if you have misplaced that incredible scarf that you were positive you just had!

Parking is not an issue if you plan ahead. Take note of the signs posted about the village before you leave your car, especially the No Parking signs and times posted on the light poles on the main street. There are public parking lots behind Colborne St. north of the locks, on either side, just behind the stores on the street, accessible from Colborne and Francis Streets. There is also the old arena by the Curling Club that is available, as well as the parking lots by the beach and Garnet Graham Park.

Road closures are planned as usual. The city’s new website made it easy to find the notice…Water St. will be closed from 9.00 am to 7.00 pm for the daytime activities and Lindsay St. – Colborne St. will be closed from 4.30 pm to 6.30 pm for the parade. The Parade route runs through the heart of the village. Cars will be cleared from the Lindsay/Colborne corridor starting around 4 PM and the road will not reopen until the parade and fireworks finish. If you are needing to make a quick exit after the fireworks, be sure to park on the same side of the locks as your destination.

SANTA IS COMING!!! Santa will be receiving visitors at Stewart Morrison Insurance office on Colborne St. Santa needs to get ready for the parade so be sure line up to get your photo with Santa before 3:30 pm.

Use this information as your activity guide or pick up a printed brochure at the first place you spot one! For young families, Pharmasave has a Family Friendly Station for your needs. There is also an actual Town Crier, live and in person, who will be announcing festive fun all day long. Be sure to say hi!

The Parade commences at 5:00pm SHARP! Scope out your place along the route and get ready for the dazzling lights of the Nighttime Parade. During the parade the clowns with the flashing lights will gladly accept your kind donations. Watch for the Fireworks at 6:00pm at the locks!

This incredible, popular, amazing, awesome day is TOTALLY FREE FOR ALL thanks to Santa Day volunteers and supporters, along with the business community of Fenelon Falls and the surrounding areas. Santa Day is a time to celebrate and practice the art of giving, sharing, joy and comfort. Let’s celebrate together in each and every smile passed from one person to another.

Happy Santa Day to one and all!!

Council directs $10,000 donation to Fenelon Falls splash pad (Nov. 2017)

October 25, 2017

KAWARTHA LAKES – Council has directed  the voluntary $10,000 donation to the City of Kawartha Lakes from Evergreen Power Limited to the community funding component of the Fenelon Falls splash pad project.

In June 2017, Evergreen Power Limited made a deputation to Council to request a resolution of support for the proposed Small FIT Solar Project at 390 Northline Road. At the same time, the company noted a voluntary $10,000 donation to Council to use at its discretion.

The Fenelon Falls splash pad project is being constructed as a community led project. The Fenelon Falls Rotary Club is managing the project, which includes a total cost of $236,000. The City contributed $7500 to the project through tax support from the 50/50 Capital Partnership Fund. Allocating this voluntary donation will help to meet the projects’s funding requirements without possible reliance on additional tax-support funding if fundraising targets are not reached.

“This is a worthy community project that is accessible to all residents of Kawartha Lakes. I’m pleased that we can supplement the community fundraising efforts by allocating the donation from Evergreen Power Limited,” commented Mayor Letham.

Soroptimist International of Kawartha Lakes Offers Cash Grant (Nov. 2017)

October 25, 2017

 to Women Seeking Financial Assistance for Educational or Training Expenses

Women who serve as the primary wage earners for their families and seek financial assistance to continue their education or receive training were invited to apply for the Soroptimist Live Your Dream: Education and Training Awards for Women.

The Kawartha Lakes club will provide a $1,500 cash grant to its award recipient, who will then advance to the Soroptimist Eastern Canada Region level, where recipients could receive up to an additional $5,000. The program culminates with three finalist $10,000 awards. The local club may also offer a $500 second place award.
Recipients can use the Live Your Dream Award (LYDA) to offset costs associated with their efforts to attain higher education or additional skills and training. This includes tuition, books, childcare, transportation or any other education-related expense.

The Soroptimist Live Your Dream Award provides over $2 million in cash grants to head-of-household women in need each year. Since the program’s inception in 1972, more than $30 million has helped tens of thousands of women achieve their dreams of a better life for themselves and their families. Since it was founded in 2011, S.I. Kawartha Lakes has awarded $6,750 to 8 strong women committed to overcoming adversity and living their dream. A study conducted by a research and consulting organization confirmed the efficacy and impact of this program. It improves the recipients’ quality of life; builds their confidence; strengthens their self-determination and makes them want to, in turn, help others. Helping women in this way has the demonstrated effect of leading to stronger communities, nations and the world.

The Kawartha Lakes club is part of Soroptimist International, a global women’s volunteer organization that works to improve the lives of women and girls through programs leading to social and economic empowerment. Kawartha Lakes members join over 75,000 Soroptimists in 122 countries and territories to contribute time and financial support to community-based projects benefiting women and girls. The club relies on donations to support its programs and raises funds in the community through special events such as the annual Snowflake Gala. For more information about how Soroptimist improves the lives of women and girls, visit www.sikawarthalakes.org or www.soroptimist.org or join us at our 6th Annual Snowflake Gala!
