Darran Poole & Rootbone  - April 21

 Juno Award Winner! 

Don't miss this band!!!! 

Description:Hamilton-based RootBone is the creation of Juno Award winning guitarist Darran Poole, formerly part of the acclaimed Canadian blues band Fathead, and accomplished poet and percussionist Bobbi Richards. To round out the band they brought in veteran musicians Bob “Omar” Tunnoch (Fathead) on bass and Jim Casson (Downchild) on drums. The creative output of this dynamic team is captured in their debut release titled “The Long Road Home”. RootBone’s music is focused on inspired songwriting that incorporates elements of rockabilly, funk, rock n roll, and folk into a blues framework. RootBone has created a fresh sound that is immediately recognizable as their own. The name RootBone is a nod to the different styles that fall under the “Roots” umbrella creating a framework that will allow the band the freedom to move and change as they progress.

Attention Everyone!!! 

We are in the process of organizing a community event that will be held in our front parking lot between 4 p.m. and 7 p.m. on Friday, 8 June 2018.  Red Fridays was started in Canada in 2006 by Karen Kelly and Lisa Miller, two military wives with husbands deployed to Afghanistan.  It was a real grass roots movement that saw many Canadians wearing red on Fridays in support of our troops.

The 4th Canadian Mounted Rifles Association is proud to have these two talented ladies working side by side with them to re invigorate and expand RED Fridays across the country.
The updated RED Friday includes First Responders (Police, Fire and Ambulance) as well as our military.  Historically, many first responders have served in the military, and in addition, both the military and first responders are deployed to protect all of us, ether at home or overseas.
We have invited representation from the military, police, fire and paramedics to set up displays so the families can come out, meet and thank them for the great work they do in support of our community.
Members of our Organizing Team include; Councillor Judi Partridge, Margaret Ritchie and Veronica McMullen (Kuipers) with additional support from many members of our branch.
We would be honoured if you can come out and join us for this celebration.  
If you have any questions, please feel free to call me at 905.690.8603.  All the best........Bob

 The Veterans Corner

Hello  My name is Laura Oros and I live in Waterdown. I just want to say a little thank you for something. 

My young son Daniel bought flowers for the 2017 Remembrance Day Service and as everyonewas laying a wreath he walked out of the group and chose to lay a bouquet at the little sapling for those who were at Vimy. He was amazed at the sapling and wanted to pay respect to the memory. 

Every day we drive by and notice they have weathered the cold winter and are still there. He says it is symbolic of how those who served never gave up and battled through bloody fighting for us. 
So I wanted to say thank you for leaving them there, you may not have even noticed but we have seen them and feel gratitude daily. You made a young lad very happy.
Kindest,Laura Oros
