New Vision Notes Thursday May 31 2018

A couple of events in the next two days that connect New Vision with the wider community…

Tomorrow evening is the launch of the Two Spirit(ed) I Am Affected Campaign by the Hamilton Community Legal Clinic. The launch takes place in Council Chambers at City Hall from 6:30 pm to 9 pm.

The campaign is being coordinated by the Aboriginal justice coordinator of the Legal Clinic. Our connection is that we proudly hosted their fundraising event “Reconciliation through Music” along with Hamilton Conference on May 24 and that we raised $400 as a faith community to help launch the campaign.

On Saturday evening, “sexy and sultry” Hamilton’s own Laura Cole launches her new album “Piece of Paradise” in the Music Hall. Laura and her partner Chris Chiarcos describe the sound as “Hawaiian soul.” Here’s a description of her first album: “Laura’s vocals take complete control over you, almost like a magic spell.”

It sounds like I am promoting the event. I am. Laura is an unabashed fan of the Music Hall, and she is donating the proceeds of her launch to our efforts to develop it. Doors open at 7:30 pm. There are a variety of ticket options and you can purchase tickets on-line here.

See you Sunday ~
