What might be the most influential factor is the way you are moving... or the way you’re not moving! Visit us to learn how to build a more resilient posture!

It was a social evening of glam, runway fashion and dance. The highlights of the evening were the Award Presentations to recognize students for their dance achievements, enthusiasm and participation. Blueheel also collaborated with two local Mississauga organizations - Fashion Circuit Inc and 5th Ave Fashion with Passion to present a runway fashion show for day and evening wear. “It was so well received by the audience and participants that this may be the start of an annual collaboration�, said Caroline Augustin, Partner at Blueheel.

BITE FEVER By Susan Gibbins / Photgraphy by Peeter Poldre

What a party Posta Italbar Cucina hosted for a ‘Twas The Bite Before Christmas community fundraising event! Bite Fever raised much-needed funds for the Breakfast with Santa Foundation’s Back to School Program. Guests enjoyed delicious hors d’oeuvres with a glass of prosecco then had fun getting their pictures taken at the photo booth. It wasn’t long before everyone hit the dance floor once the band, Community Soul Project began to play. It was a fun night for an amazing cause.

Tim Horton’s

SOUTHSIDE SHUFFLE By Diana Lynas / Photography by Sandor Banks & Nettie Siep

There was plenty of music, dancing and celebrating during the Tim Horton’s Southside Shuffle, a blues and jazz festival that has been entertaining Port Credit since 1999. It all started 21 years ago with founder and artistic director Chuck Jackson’s vision to bring the blues to Port Credit. Today, the festival now draws over 75,000 people from around the world and the Mississauga Arts Council has awarded it the MARTY award for Mississauga’s Best Festival. There were four stages featuring amazing artists. One stage featured a Woodstock theme that had bands bringing us back in time with Matt Weidinger’s tribute to The Who. On Sunday, the legendary Downchild Blues Band celebrated their 50th Anniversary tour with special guests Jenie Thai and Tony D. Rabba Fine Foods Street Shuffle opened with a memorable street parade and featured bands and acts performing at various locations up and down Lakeshore Road East. So much talent and so much fun made this event a huge success. Thank you to all the volunteers, organizers, sponsors and performers that helped make this 21th anniversary a special one.

Vanig and Raffi believe that the hidden beauty of jewellery is the fact that it can be passed down through generations while carrying the memories of family members that have owned and worn it years before. Be it the engagement ring of a grandmother or the wedding band of a grandfather, quality pieces become heirlooms that can last a lifetime. “Old jewellery should not be forgotten. It’s simply waiting to be restyled into something new,” says Vanig.

you are looking for. Additionally, they offer reconstruction services to damaged jewellery as well as replacing and replicating lost jewellery.

Lorne Park Jewellers can bring new life to old pieces by creating special designs for rings, pendants and earrings. What better way to honour the life and traditions of a cherished family member than by having their diamond setting turned into a special new engagement ring that is sure to bring joy to a newly engaged couple? For Vanig and Raffi, the most enjoyable part of their business is seeing the look on their customers faces when they see the finished product for the first time. Whether you are interested in designing an engagement ring, a special piece of jewellery, revamping an old piece of jewellery or require other services such as appraisals or repairs, Lorne Park Jewellers is a trusted source for ideas and inspiration.
