Tue. 4 Jul, 2017 10:00 am - Thu. 19 Oct, 2017 4:00 pm

July to October (Tues., Wed., Thur.)
Stone Carving Project At Uxbridge Historical Centre
Artist Fly Freeman will be carving on site: July to October, Tuesday and Wednesday Mornings (10am - noon), Thursday afternoons (1pm - 4pm).
The Arts and Visual Enhancement Committee (AVEC) has selected artist Fly Freeman to undertake the “Uxbridge Story in Stone” project, a massive stone carving that will be installed in downtown Uxbridge. Four carved panels will tell the story of the history of the town and the establishment of our trails.
The artist is on site three days a week working on one of the four 800-lb. blocks of stone. Fly Freeman brings a wealth of experience to the Historical Centre as she shapes the blocks of Indiana Limestone with the same type of hand-held tools that have been used by stone masons for generations. There are no compressors, power tools or electric grinders to create noise or dust. The work area is roped off but the public can easily view and converse with Fly in complete safety.
A special, free introduction to stone carving is available Thursday evenings at 6:30pm. Stone, tools and safety glasses will be provided. All are welcome and no registration is required.
Uxbridge Historical Centre, 7239 Concession 6, Uxbridge. The Centre is open for tours June 4 - Sept. 25, 10am - 4pm, Wednesday to Sunday (closed on holidays).

Stone Carving Project At Uxbridge Historical Centre
Artist Fly Freeman will be carving on site: July to October, Tuesday and Wednesday Mornings (10am - noon), Thursday afternoons (1pm - 4pm).
The Arts and Visual Enhancement Committee (AVEC) has selected artist Fly Freeman to undertake the “Uxbridge Story in Stone” project, a massive stone carving that will be installed in downtown Uxbridge. Four carved panels will tell the story of the history of the town and the establishment of our trails.
The artist is on site three days a week working on one of the four 800-lb. blocks of stone. Fly Freeman brings a wealth of experience to the Historical Centre as she shapes the blocks of Indiana Limestone with the same type of hand-held tools that have been used by stone masons for generations. There are no compressors, power tools or electric grinders to create noise or dust. The work area is roped off but the public can easily view and converse with Fly in complete safety.
A special, free introduction to stone carving is available Thursday evenings at 6:30pm. Stone, tools and safety glasses will be provided. All are welcome and no registration is required.

Meet Henry and Alice.  The kids have left the nest, life is good ... there’s finally time for each other.  So when Alice books a luxury hotel room for an evening of “Us Time”, what could possibly go wrong? Probably nothing... unless you happen bring along a copy of “sex for dummies”, then, all bets are off, and emotions sure to run high. Rough, raw, sincere, and ultimately tender, this achingly funny “one-on-one” strikes a chord for anyone who has ever been in a relationship.

Mushroom Identification and Appreciation

Sat. 14 Oct, 2017 10:00 am

Mushroom Identification and Appreciation
Date: Saturday, October 14, 2017
Start Time: 10 a.m.
Location: Room 2015, Simcoe Hall, Lakehead University, Orillia Campus
Instructors: Bob Bowles, Coordinator of the Ontario Master Naturalist Program, and Luke Eckstein, Ontario Master Naturalist
Description: What we call mushrooms are the conspicuous, and in most cases distinct, spore-producing fruiting bodies of the many species of fungi that grow in our area. They come in different sizes, shapes and colours and can appear overnight, covering lawns, meadows, woods, and wetlands, growing on living and dead matter and often forming mutually beneficial relationships with other living flora. Although mushrooms have long been considered a culinary delicacy, some are poisonous and even fatal if consumed. They can be identified to species by features like spore colour, gill attachment or growth substrate. This workshop will focus on species identification using these features and will touch on microscopic features of spores and colour reactions to chemicals. This workshop will also help you understand the mushroom kingdom and dispel some of the legends and mysteries that surround these fungi. You will learn how important mushrooms really are to healthy ecosystems.
Fee: $75 +HST

Bradford’s first Pumpkin Fest

Sat. 14 Oct, 2017 11:00 am - 3:00 pm

Jump into fall with BWG’s first Pumpkin Fest

The Town of Bradford West Gwillimbury is excited to announce a brand new family-friendly fall event – Pumpkin Fest!

Pumpkin Fest will take place on Saturday, October 14 from 11:00am-3:00pm at Henderson Memorial Park. This event is also an opportunity to get a sneak preview of the newly constructed Henderson Memorial Park, located on Line 9 just west of Sideroad 10.

All activities are free, including an inflatable corn maze, games, pumpkin carving/decorating, colouring, musical entertainment by Team T & J and Russ Clayton, a puppet show, face painting and more! Pumpkins have been provided by Tony’s Farm Market. Special guests include BWG Fire & Emergency Services, who will be providing public education as well as activities to recognize Fire Prevention Week.

Don’t leave your wallet at home, though – there will be several fundraising activities including a BBQ lunch hosted by the Bradford Lions, who raise money to support local community projects (including most recently the Henderson Memorial Park Field House). The 1st Bradford Scouts will be on hand to host Apple Day, an annual event that provides Scouting youth with an opportunity to show their appreciation to the community for their year-round support by giving away apples. Donations are gratefully accepted and all money raised goes towards improving the Scouting program. Hot drinks will also be available for donations.

Finally, non-perishable food items will be collected for the Bradford Helping Hand Food Bank.
