Events: Keeping Community Alive & Thriving!

Habitat for Humanity House Party (AGAIN)


Last year, we turned the RBC Convention Centre ballroom into a cozy and casual house party featuring rooms set up by local companies, live music, silent and live auctions, and even a dice game of chance to try and win a car.

This year, we promise to host another exciting and enjoyable House Party for our friends with once again, delicious food, live music, great auction prizes and so much more! We hope you can join us for a memorable evening on Thursday, November 2nd at the RBC Convention Centre.

By attending this event, you are helping to build strength, stability and independence to the Habitat families in need of a decent and affordable place to live. AMBER will be there with a table, come over and say HI!

GRAND PRIZE IS A TRIP FOR 2 TO ITALY!

The JD Edwards Band rocked the house last year, so we invited them back!

Harvest Moon 2016

One of my favorite festivals of the year happens each Fall in Clearwater, Manitoba.  Dedicated to not only great music but also hosts a top notch sustainable farmers market and local craft fair. This year, the whole family took a sweet little Boler trailer out to the field, as we took in the rural prairie wonders & full moon sky. Just another reason to love where you live Manitoba!
