April 23, 2017 - April 29, 2017 @ ALL OF CANADA
Thank you Canadian volunteers, for 150 glorious years.
In 2017, volunteering comes in many forms and is as diverse as Canada itself. Someone who shovels their neighbour’s laneway or who brings a lost pet to the animal shelter is helping to build a stronger community. Sometimes we miss recognizing these people as volunteers, because they do not occupy a formal role within an organization or group.
To celebrate all volunteers and to get you thinking more deeply about volunteering, during NVW Volunteer Canada will release a series of crossword puzzles that reveal the impacts, benefits and diverse ways Canadians are involved in communities. Some answers may be obvious, while others may cause you to stop and say: “Volunteering, Eh?”
However you recognize volunteering in 2017, one thing remains timeless…and that is volunteer efforts create positive impact in communities across Canada.

Our last performance of the season features TV and film actress (and singer) Beverley Elliott. She brings her award winning Fringe Festival show “… didn’t see that coming” to Hinton on Thursday April 27, 2017 at the Royal Canadian Legion.
Once upon a time, long before Beverley Elliott played Granny on ABC's hit television series Once Upon a Time, she lived in Listowel, Ontario, a tiny farming town with a “one-room schoolhouse and a Campbell’s Soup factory.” Then, one day, she packed her bags and headed west.
With stories to tell and songs to sing Beverley Elliott brings her one-woman show, presented cabaret-style and fittingly called …Didn’t See That Coming, to Hinton’s stage. It will take you on a journey, revealing unexpected blessings and uncomfortable epiphanies.
