The second to last official weekend of summer is here. If you are not busy picking up school supplies and back to school clothes, we encourage you to get out and enjoy some of the last events of the season starting with the Pontiac Community Players 9th edition presentation, The Amorous Ambassador.
Opening to rave reviews with an exquisite
meal on Wednesday night, the play is a farce about a new American Ambassador to Britain who tells his family he’s off to Scotland to play golf, while his wife and daughter announce weekend plans of their own. Calamity ensues as the truth comes out. Presented in beautiful and historic Coronation Hall Onin Bristol, this is a not-to-be-missed event.
Over in Portage at the Stone School Gallery, a new Vernissage opens tonight with three artists using three different mediums to illustrate how creative minds think differently. See the work of Jill Alexander, Diana Wakely and Bonnie Zimmerling
The Valentine Centre in Campbell’s Bay is holding their annual fundraising BBQ to raise money for a new generator. The BBQs will be on, food cooking and music playing. You will have a chance to enter a raffle and make a bid in the silent auction. The event goes from 11:30 a.m. – 2:00 p.m.
On Saturday night things heat up at Pine Lodge with a Casino night starting at 8:00 p.m. There will be all kinds of games and prizes for everyone. Come for dinner an stay for the the excitement at the Casino night. Charlie’s Roadhouse is open until 9:00 p.m.
Looking for something a little more serene? How about a Sunset and Full Moon ride along the PPJ. Friends of the PPJ have orgnaized this unique event. Registration starts at 8 pm in Shawville, at the PPJ and Railroad Ave. and the ride
goes to Bristol (Wyman). Organizers say that it should take about 2 – 2.5 hours. Good news though, there is a return shuttle service available ($5), from several points along the route. Don’t for get your headlamps and reflective gear.
Whatever you do, we hope you have a lovely weekend. P.S. If we missed an event or you do have something coming up, please let us know so that we can get the word out. firstname.lastname@example.org
