Taghum Hall celebrates abundance
It’s fall at Taghum Hall.
That means celebrating abundance — beginning with the annual Harvest Festival on Sunday, October 1 from 10 a.m. – 3 p.m.
Artisans, farm stands, wacky contests, a borsch lunch, and live music in the gazebo all make for a thoroughly enjoyable day of community conviviality.
“It’s abundantly clear that the Hall is a busy place,” says Events Coordinator Heather Haake.
“Between our own events and programs and community rentals for events and private functions, there is rarely a quiet day at Taghum Hall.”
Also coming up is Write Off the Bat! Awards Night on lucky Friday, October 13 at 7 p.m.
This free event, which is part of B.C. Culture Days, is where the community gets to cheer the 16 writers who participated in two-day marathon in September and find out who the professional jurors deemed top of their craft. Readings by the winners make this an engaging literary evening.
The Hall is looking for six aspiring sewers between the ages of 7 to 13 to sign up for Kids Can Sew, a six-week after school series hosted by experienced mentors.
Kids will make a new project each week, from phone cases to stuffies.
This free program is supported by a Neighbourhood Small Grant through the Osprey Foundation (a one-time $20 material fee applies).
