The County has officially proclaimed twenty-twenty as the year to gather. To gather a basket full of local produce, meats, and spirits from a local farm store or market. To gather your friends and family around a big table (or kitchen island), to celebrate each other and the local bounty before you. To gather around a restaurant table and appreciate the love the chefs bring to your plate. It’s the year of you, and your connection to this place through the food you eat and the people you spend time with.
Social hour 5-6 p.m. Dinner @ 6 p.m.
Our programme for the evening will be presented by the group, Métissage. Métissage tells the lesser-known history of Owen Sound's First Nations, Métis, Black settlers, working class and women leaders.
The Collective, formed by Rob Rolfe, Larry Jensen, Mary Little, Richard-Yves Sitoski, Susan Staves, Will Henry, and Frank Francalanza, marries enthusiasm for heritage with poetry, story and song. Métissage does not have a plot or story line; instead, try to picture yourself with a group of friends, sharing stories around a kitchen table. The group’s aim is to present mainly untold stories in a way that is reminiscent of the multi-coloured interwoven threads in a traditional Métis sash.
