So We’re On Almonte!- For the Love of Fort Mac!




Last week Carleton Place did their Carleton Place Cares benefit for Fort McMurray. JUNE 24TH– Almonte is doing a benefit and I think this is a great time to visit the neighbours and help some more! Carleton Place raised over $12,000- let’s help them exceed that amount!

For most of us, watching the devastation that happened in Alberta was something short of a horror movie. For some though, it was their reality. A reality that will take a long time to recover from – emotionally and financially. As always, our local musicians have banded together to help. Join us for an evening of exceptional music in efforts to help raise some money to help with their journey.

As always, Valley Heritage radio is on hand to help their community. Thank you Jason Marshall, Christa Pare and Mike Cloutier for MC ing. I think we can squeeze a song out of Mike and Christa with Jason on Kazoo! Amazing talents from Jamie and Jeff McMunn, Arleen Quinn, Unwound, Ottawa Valley Country music hall of famers, Dale Ducharme, Mike Hamelin, Rodger Coulombe and Brian Ostrom. Doug and Pam Champagne, George Allen Chenier SR, Johnny and Jack Spinks, Maureen Young, Chris Metcalfe, Marc Gossett, Theresa Bennet Scott, Gord Barnes, and Cooper Street.

You don’t want to miss this show! $10.00 per person, all proceeds going to help!



Today We Need Your Help!— Come Hungry!



Displaced Fort McMurray residents got a sobering drive-by view of their burned city Friday in a convoy that was moving evacuees south to reunite with families and friends.

Officials said shifting winds were giving the embattled northern Alberta city a break, but they added the fire that forced 80,000 people from their homes remained out of control and was likely to burn for weeks.

The evacuees are spread all over Alberta and as we speak are busy trying to get kids registered in school, find a permanent place to live, and deal with what is happening.

Canadians have been so willing to extend help when help is needed. THIS is the Canada I grew up in. THIS is the Canada I want the world to see

Come out today to show your support Carleton Place!
