Those of you who are fans of my blog or those of you who just find yourselves here from time to time, I also have a column with a local online newspaper. I don't post on my blog as much as I should so for the next while I'm double dip so to speak. Whatever I put on Miramichi Online, will now go on my blog. I'm not sure if it serves a greater purpose. I just feel like putting my work in more place than one.
Right now is a very busy time for me. I'm directing and acting in a play that I wrote. My friends Lisa and Jason are in it with me and we're proud that it is going to part of a Hospice Miramichi Fundraiser. We hope that lot of people will come out to see it and give their hard earned money to a very worthy and much needed cause.
Here is the first of my month long columns that I'm writing to help promote "A Taste of Chocolate".
If you love chocolate, laughing, music and helping out in your community, then there’s a good chance that you’ll be heading to the Rodd Miramichi River on Saturday, February 11th, 2012 at 7pm
“A Taste of Chocolate” is returning to the Rodd as a fundraiser for Hospice Miramichi. Below is some information about Hospice Miramichi from their website.
“Hospice Miramichi is a non-profit volunteer organization and was established in March 2011. The focus of hospice care is on comfort not cure, and on life not death. Hospice Miramichi is seeking to raise awareness of the unique needs of those who are living with life threatening illnesses where cure is not an option and medications are no longer controlling the illness. Hospice Miramichi will work within the community by providing services and support for clients and families within their homes. Our volunteers will be trained to provide practical and emotional support during the end stages of life and through the grieving process.
Our plan is to bring hospice to Miramichi in three (3) stages. First, the establishment of a Hospice Outreach Program, where in- home support services will be offered to assist palliative patients and their families live the remainder of their lives to the fullest extent possible. The second stage of our plan will be the addition of a Hospice Day Program . The third stage of our plan is to establish a Residential Hospice (RH) in Miramichi within the next 3-4 years.”
Turning this much needed organization into reality requires community help and “A Taste of Chocolate” is just one of the fundraisers that Hospice Miramichi will be presenting this year. They are hoping the turnout at these events will reflect the huge amount of support the Miramichi community and beyond has already shown Hospice Miramichi.
Along with mountains of delicious chocolate desserts (and non-chocolate treats if chocolate isn’t your thing), you will be treated to an original one act play written by yours truly, Cindy Rule, called “Defining Love.” Lisa Savage, Jason Blanchard and I will entertain you as we take you through the different stages of love; from childhood crushes to finding that special someone, we believe the play is filled with moments everyone can relate to.
The evening will also include music by Connie and Paul as well as an Arm’s Length Auction, Cake Auction and a 50/50 draw.
So, once again, the event details are…
