Our Silent Auction is up! Get involved!

First of all, before I say anything, if you don’t “Like” our Facebook page, LIKE IT NOW!

This year, we’re having a silent auction, as usual, but we’re doing it a little differently. This past year has seen a lot of auctions in Labrador go online, via Facebook, and be very successful. So we thought we’d do it too. The auction won’t be ENTIRELY online, however…the bidding stops online before the concert and picks up again in person at the Lawrence O’Brien Arts Centre! So bidders will have to be a little strategic if they can’t get out to the concert. Also, if you’re not on Facebook but live in the Happy Valley-Goose Bay area, you can come to the auction and bid that way.

There are some really awesome items there up for bid! Check it out now! And of course, don’t forget to come out to our event at the Lawrence O’Brien Arts Centre on Saturday, October 18 at 7pm!

It’s FUNDRAISER time!

20141006 - Party landscape

The Them Days concert fundraiser is coming up on Saturday, October 18 at 7pm at the Lawrence O’Brien Arts Centre.

It’s going to be a fun night, that’s for sure. Instead of the typical concert experience, we’ll be having more of an open-mic night kind of feel, except in true Them Days Labrador style. Just like an old-fashioned kitchen party or house party, we’ll be letting everyone perform who wants to (we’ll all be sitting up on the stage like during the SS Kyle show, not just performers). So if you’re the kind of person who plays guitar at parties, come on out! And if you like to recite poems, come on out! If your toes start tapping and you gotta dance when the accordion comes out, come on out! And, if you’re like me and you just like to watch, come on out too. The fundraiser helps Them Days do things like buy new computers for the office. (Believe me, if you have ever used a computer in our office, you would probably run out and buy a new one!)

We’ll also be having a silent auction just like in previous years. The difference is, is that this year, the silent auction will start online and finish in person at the show. Ooh! I’m getting excited just thinking about it!!

Culture Days 2014!

Culture Days is a Canada-wide weekend celebration of art and culture. We’ve been participating by holding our own event since the very first Culture Days–this year marks the FIFTH time!  (Can you believe it? I’m surprised myself!) As always, it was a ton of fun! This year we added a little bit more excitement with an expansion to our usual menu of flummies, jams and teas with baked beans, fish and brewis (true, we did add that one last year) and moose soup! So not only did people dress up, look at pictures, listen to music, they also filled their bellies with delicious homemade food!

The weather co-operated a bit…we didn’t have rain, but it was a little cold (or so I’ve heard…I couldn’t be there!) Judging by the happy faces and the smell of the flummies that hit me when I went into the office on Monday, it was a good day!

Thanks to all our musicians and volunteers who worked hard the day of the event and all those who lent a hand by making food or letting us use their equipment. It’s always a group effort at Them Days!

Daphne said it well on our Facebook page:

Our Culture Days was a great success again this year. I would like to put out a HUGE thank you to all that helped out in anyway. Our board was great again this year and we also had some local people that came out and was their for the entire time helping out, with the tent, wood and boughs, Lloyd Pardy, Mr.Hamel and I know I may have missed someone. (some people I didn’t know by name). Nellie Bock who cooked all the flummies, Frank Williams who did our pictures. Also our musicians, Lloyd Goudie, Gary Mitchell and Kirk Lethbridge. Also Thank You to everyone that came out and helped us celebrate. It was a very enjoyable time. Daphne.
