Much Ado About Nothing

 

A magical, musical journey into deep space! by William Shakespeare directed by Sharon Malone

“Sigh no more, ladies, sigh no more, Men were deceivers ever, One foot in sea and one on shore, To one thing constant never.” The more things change, the more they stay the same. This July, Emerald Pig’s 9th Bard on the Bandstand production, Much Ado About Nothing, will take you into the future and deep space, exploring the themes of love, mistaken identity, miscommunication, revenge, and redemption that Shakespeare was famous for. Against the backdrop of the Messina Cantina, you will be introduced to a wild set of musicians, and other aliens. Meet

Claudio and Hero, the naïve young lovers who fall victim to the meanspirited plot of the loveless Don John, and Beatrice and Benedick who carry on a “merry war” and are “too wise to woo peaceably”. Don’t worry; as with all of Shakespeare’s comedies, everything works out in the end! Bard on the Bandstand is always free, family-friendly and promises that you will come away with a wonderful

summer experience to remember for years! July 17-19 at Spirit Square in Pitt Meadows; July 24-26 at Memorial Peace Park in Maple Ridge. Bring a picnic, blankets, lawn chairs and a donation for the Friends in Need Food Bank.

Place the flour into a shallow bowl then drain the wings of the marinade. Dip each wing carefully into the flour, shake off any excess then place the wings on the prepared tray. Bake skin side up for 15 minutes. Then turn the wings over so that the skin side is down and bake for another 15 minutes. Finally turn skin side up again and bake for a final 15 minutes to make sure they are crispy. Serve with salad on a bed of lettuce leaves.

Meet Kat Wahamaa, Artist In Residence

Kat Wahamaa started her appointment as Artist in Residence for the District of Maple Ridge/City of Pitt Meadows in April. “I am delighted to have been chosen to live and work in the community of Port Haney,” she says,”It’s a stunning area, full of character and characters that I can’t wait to meet!” Kat’s career has spanned over 30 years in various areas. She has developed public arts programs, community wide festivals and events, arts and social action projects, championed local artists and initiatives and fostered connections between individuals and organizations on all kinds of projects. She believes that, “the arts are integral to the full growth and development of all people and the advancement of humanity.” A dynamic musical performer and songwriter, Kat has performed throughout Western Canada, Japan, US and the UK at everything from festivals to concert halls, honky-tonks to house concerts winning rave reviews. Her current musical focus is with her partner Tony Rees. They perform as Kat & Tony – joyful, mournful, thoughtful, music for the folks - a mix of old-time and original jazz, roots and blues and they have just released a new CD called “Everything Blue”. Her art has always held an element of community engagement, as music speaks directly to the soul. Over the last decade, through music, dance, fibre and photographic art, she has focused on community arts. Her goal with the Artist in Residency is to be an active, engaged member of the community. “I want to connect to the neighbourhood, and hopefully connect folks to each other in a meaningful way through arts and the simple

16

joy of creating together.” For her first project Kat will be inviting community to work with her to expand her photographic art exhibition “Openings”. ”I have always been fascinated by openings.” she says. “Doors, windows or archways manifest architectural detail, give history lessons and become works of art at the hand of the elements. Openings found in nature, and those within us suggest another way of being or perceiving. All offer an invitation what’s beyond, within?” She will be creating a blog and inviting folks in the neighbourhood to send in photos of doors, windows, vistas in nature – such as the river provides - and also photos of what it is about their neighbourhood that opens them to new ideas, experiences or simply opens their hearts. Photos submitted by community members will be uploaded onto the blog for public view and commentary with poems and short prose inspired by the images. The resulting body of work would then be displayed as an exhibition both in the neighbourhood and in a gallery space. Kat plans to start the “Openings” project over the summer. She will also be creating a studio space in the residence and offering dance, visual art and music workshops and classes, likely starting in the fall. You can find her work at www.katwahamaa.ca and find email contact for her there as well.

Meet DeeDee! 3 years old, Chihuahua mix, Yes to Dogs/Cats/Kids

Woodstock

DeeDee is a very sweet little girl! She came to LEASH when her previous owner passed away and as a result her and her 2 pack mates were split up. With all of these recent changes, she is still finding her confidence, but is making gains each day! She has the cutest underbite and even dances when she's excited! She is a very smart girl and listens well. She is also almost 100% housetrained.

Cases like Woodstock are not rare. Please consider donating in order to help dogs like Woodstock. You can check out Woody's GoFundMe campaign at www.gofundme.com/woodstock If the campaign for Woodstock has ended, please consider a general donation for other dogs in need. Donate to our rescue at www.leashsavinglives.com

Little Woodstock was abandoned in a kill shelter in a bird cage by his owners, and it wasn't hard to find out why: Woody needs major surgery on both of his rear legs in order to live a pain-free life.

Helpful Drycleaning advice fromDrycleaners: Brenda at West R idge What is Starch and why is it used on clothing? Starch is a compound created by plants and it’s a crucial carbohydrate in the human diet. Outside of this use, there are several practical and beneficial purposes, such as being used by drycleaners.

starch will typically be applied during the final pressing process. Dresses and other more formal attire can also remain wrinkle free for much longer after being starched.

One of the most commonly drycleaned items is men’s dress shirts and drycleaners often use starch on those shirts. A starched, pressed shirt looks more professional and clean under a business suit. To secure the creases and to give the fabric a crisp, semi-stiff appearance,

If you ask your drycleaner to starch any clothing, it’s important you specify whether you want light, medium or heavy starching. The more that’s used, the stiffer the fabric will be after it’s pressed.

Have more

questions?

One example of extreme starching is the process we use for jeans worn by cowboys. It’s called Texas Starch and we’re the professionals in offering this unique service. Stop by today and ask us more!

Feel free to stop in and ask Brenda. With over 30 years of drycleaning and pressing experience she’s your fabric and drycleaning expert.

This pretty cat is Sukko. She is a quiet girl who is always overlooked because she spends most of her time in a hidey hole away from all the action. Sukko has never adjusted to the shelter life. She’s not a fan of her roommates and she’s shy. Sukko isn’t a cuddler and likes her own space. She will make a perfect companion for someone who has no expectations, and would just be happy to share their home with an undemanding furry heartbeat. Give her a soft bed, a sunny windowsill, a bowl of food, an occasional pet and she will be forever grateful.

Airport Day at YPK- Pitt Meadows Regional Airport Aviation technology has come a long way. From the first steam powered model glider in the late 1840’s to the first solar-powered crosscontinental flight in 2013. We live in a time where if you can dream it you can do it, and with that we want to show you all that was dreamed of throughout the years. Aviation has some of the most diverse and exciting jobs in the world, but without the minds of dreamers we wouldn’t be able to experience the most amazing gifts of all, the gift of FLIGHT! The day focuses on the amazing achievements in aviation and the people needed to perform them. The theme of our annual Airport Day is “Careers in Aviation”, and we welcome all of you to help us show our local communities and capture the interest of our future aviators. This July 20th is a free day for all ages to come and see the passion that Pitt Meadows Airport, its residents and the aviation world have for aviation that has prevailed thus far. The runways will still be active as we want everyone to be able to experience an airport in operation! So fly an aircraft in and show it off ! We understand that not everyone is interested in aviation so we’ve mixed it up a bit and included the addition of our famous “Wings and Wheels” display, featuring some of the finest vehicles that can’t fly and our “Marketplace”, full of local business vendors, food carts and activities for both children and adults. We highly encourage both the aviation industry and the general business community to be a Sponsor or become an Exhibitor and join us this year! So grab your friends and families and come down for a fun day!

Some of our hardworking farmers selling every Saturday, rain or shine, at the Haney Farmers Market in Memorial Peace Park in downtown Maple Ridge, are a tribute to their dedication and desire to provide fresh, local food to all our citizens. Our True North Farmers are always willing to chat about their farms. Nature and Living’s Amarylis and Christine whose farm in Whonnock provides us with Asian vegetables, mushrooms, asparagus, eggs and more all season. Get on their mailing list - they deliver! Sonja led the expansion of Red Barn Plants and Produce of Maple Ridge into a line of vinegars that is outstanding in flavours and variety. Red Barn has a Farm Gate open on Friday nights and has a CSA program you can join in.

Fe of Never Say Die Farms of Pitt Meadows has a Farm Gate open Tuesday to Sunday.

Al and Donna of Duende Farms in Whonnock. It’s the home of Gusto Garlic. They also have lamb, mixed vegetables and flowers. Purchases can also be made directly from the farm.

Raptors Ridge Since farming began, nature continues to play a key element in agriculture practice. Many Agriculture practices are including natural methods to grow and or maintain crop production. Natural bio culture and organic methods are used more and more as consumers recognize the importance these methods play in sustaining healthy choices. Different farm practices are also encouraging native wildlife such as Raptors to provide a positive enforcement of crop health. Raptors are at the top of the food chain feeding on many rodents that damage roots of plants or infect feed for animals. Many species of Raptors co-exist upon the Agriculture industry, those include Owls that provide the night shift of harvesting rodents that would otherwise be infesting or damaging crops. One Barn Owl can consume 1400 mice per year, a family consumes over 9500 rodents per year, farmers best friend. Agriculture benefits greatly from recognizing what raptor species is evident in their area; Kestrels, Red Tailed Hawks, Merlin’s and Peregrine Falcons are some of the natural species working in the field. After all Raptors have a lot of talent in their talons, that’s their Business.
