Brant Green Drinks
Sep 13 @ 7:00 pm – 9:00 pm

This is not a Green Party event, but should be of interest to everyone who is concerned about the environment and our survival.

Brant Green Drinks on the 13th day of each month

Who: people like you who are interested in environmental issues, making a difference, networking, or just plain having a good time with friends and neighbours!

What: good drinks, good people, good times!

Why: good drinks, good people, good times!

Agenda: good drinks, good people, good times!

    Brant Green Drinks is the Brantford/Brant chapter of an organic, self-organizing, international network of environmentally conscious, lively people, like yourself, from all walks of life.

    There is no formal agenda for our gatherings, just good drinks, good people, and good times. Come out and you’ll be made welcome. Just say, “are you green?” and we will look after you and introduce you to whoever is there.

    Green Drinks is a great way of catching up with people you know and also for meeting new friends and making business contacts. Everyone invites someone else along, so there’s always a different crowd. The gatherings are very simple and unstructured, but many people have found employment, made friends, developed new ideas, done deals and had moments of serendipity.

    So, come along, bring a friend, we’re looking forward to meeting you!

    For more information or if you have any questions,
    please contact organizer Ken Burns: kenburns [at] brantgreens.ca

When: 7:00 p.m. – 9:00 p.m. or for as long as folks are around

Planning mental health concert: Community and horses!

Yenny writes:
It’s growing and coming together. I’m pretty thrilled right now. I reached out to Jesse (friend and booking agent), and he is getting bands onboard to come to event! So far Burnaby have confirmed.

Fundraising for Can Praxis: https://canpraxis.com/

While the Canadian Forces uses team building, communications training and leadership development to prepare soldiers for war, Can Praxis uses horses to help soldiers recover from it and regain their family relationships.

We are also showing a few documentaries highlighting the equine and mental health:

* A Pony & His Boy
A boy born with Down’s Syndrome whose life is changed when he gets involved with a pony.

* Silent Comrade
About vets and equine therapy. It is beautifully made.

* Mustang Saviours
Veterans with PTSD working together with former wild horses.

On stage:

* Melanie Crawford
Who will speak on mental health and sing. https://www.relentlessandcompany.com/

* Burnaby
Burnaby is a group of four friends from KW Ontario who love making music together. https://burnaby.bandcamp.com/

* There will be karaoke

* And we will have DJs after bands.

With support from:
* Pride Stables, as a Pony & His Boy very much is their fit.
