Unique Way To Honour Our...

Unique Way To Honour Our Veterans Branch 62 of the Royal Canadian Legion has come up with a unique way to remember our veterans. Spokesman Les Jones says they’re looking for families or sponsors to take part in their Veteran Banner Program. It costs $150 for a 24 by 57 in banner that will be displayed on city lamp posts on Christina St. for a six week period around Remembrance Day. “We have room for 34 of them,” says Jones. “On the banner will be a picture, along with his or her name, branch of service, theatre of service and sponsor’s name. The Canadian Flag, the legion crest and a poppy will be along the bottom.” After three years, the banners will be returned to the sponsor or family. $10 from each sale will help homeless veterans. Contact the Sarnia Legion if you’re interested.

Magic Music from Missy & Sue for Oct. 2017 First Friday

Magic Music from Missy &...

Review of October 6, 2017 First Friday event featuring Missy Burgess & Sue Webber written by Brian Hay. First Friday at the Cheeky Monkey was fun and the music was great. That's sort of a "given" when the people playing are Missy Burgess and Sue Webber though. They delivered a mix of original material and covers with flair and a spirit of joy that both communicate beautifully. Originals such as 'Missy's Blues' and 'Don't Go To Cincinnati' shone. Covers such as 'Smile' were played with such warmth as to become beacons of light. That's one of the things music can accomplish though and these ladies work toward that. The sweetest moments came when they did harmony work together. That's something they'll hopefully do more of in the future. And of course there was Missy's (almost obligatory at this point and it's a great thing) nod to Tom Waits. 'Chocolate Jesus' and 'The Last Leaf On The Tree' (the piece he ...
