Things to Do – March 2015

March looks destined to come in like a lion, and I hope out like a lamb! Thankfully, there are tonnes of unique community happenings to distract us from the weather. The hardest part will be deciding which ones to do…

Join in the excitement Saturday, March 7th – 9am to 4pm, Celebrate Women of Aviation. Try your hand at one of the experiential hands-on aviation booths, listen to amazing women present in the aviation speakers panel, then meet some of the panelists at the Meet & Greet reception. Most excitingly, arrive early and register for one of the free flights being sponsored, and experience flying for the first time! If you are you a girl between the age of 4 to 100 and never been up in a small airplane be sure to be there for 9:00 am registration – there are 150 available seats for women and girls who have never flown.

Can you do something unique you want to share? On Tuesday, March 10th from 6-8pm, KW’s Got Talent is holding auditions at Conestoga College’s Doon campus. There will be great judges and amazing prizes to be won!  All money raised for KW’s Got Talent will be given to THEMUSEUM downtown Kitchener. There will be lots of food and fun at this event so don’t miss out on aditioning today – the event will be held on April 1st at THEMUSEUM. Email crista.sedlacek@gmail.com today for more details about auditions and to register for a timeslot!

Interested in showcasing your filmmaking talents? Now is your chance! The City of Kitchener and Kitchener Public Library are offering a Youth Video Competition for youth between the ages of 12 and 25. Showcase your original short film and animations in the community and win cash awards and prizes. Submissions are due March 31. Register for your spot in a 90-minute workshop and learn tips and tricks to take your video submission to the next level. Discover storyboarding techniques, how to obtain copyright-free multimedia and more! Workshops are available at all 5 community library locations.

Tax Help: On March 14th at the KPL, Volunteer Chartered Professional Accountants will be preparing personal tax returns for individuals in our community who need assistance.

Come taste the tradition! On Saturday, March 28, 2015 from 7:00 am to 4:00 pm the town of Elmira will celebrate North America’s most delicious natural treat – maple syrup! Since 1965, the annual Elmira Maple Syrup Festival has attracted thousands of visitors to taste local maple syrup poured on pancakes. The festival has plenty of exciting family-friendly activities, from exploring maple production in a sugar bush to browsing the Outdoor Mall to ticketed entertainment at the Woolwich Memorial Centre. Proceeds raised by the Festival are donated back to not-for-profit and charitable organizations in the community.
