Intergenerational Event at the NAC
We will see: The Importance of Being Earnest, Oscar Wilde’s most effervescent,
flamboyantly witty and best-loved play.
Time and Date: Wednesday, November 5, 2014 at 12:00 noon
Location: National Arts Center
This brilliantly clever and inventive 1895 comedy of manners is without peer. A triumph of subtlety and sophistication, The Importance of Being Earnest is a masterpiece of polished decadence – one of the funniest plays ever written. Stylish and stylized, this satire of London society and social conventions features true love, false identities, guilty secrets, cucumber sandwiches, and the grandest dame in drama, Lady Bracknell. Grab your finest Bunburying outfit and join us.

1st Annual Antiques Appraisal Day
Saturday, June 14th, 2014
McLean and Associates
Our first ever Antiques Appraisal Day was a great success. Over a hundred people attended and appraisals were made on a variety of items from jewelery to art to books and china. You name it, they appraised it. We raised over $1100 for the Olde Forge Community Resource Centre and we’re looking forward to doing it again next year.
Seniors Fair 2014 Edition
Thursday, April 24th, 2014
Ron Kolbus Lakeside Centre
It seemed that winter had finally retreated when The Olde Forge staged its second annual Seniors’ Fair where close to 300 seniors cruised the 40 booths featuring services and products for the “older adult”. A boxed lunch created especially for the the occasion was provided by Nate’s Deli and washed down with Starbucks coffee. Mayor Jim Watson, MPP Bob Chiarelli and Olde Forge Chair Mary Houston-Lambert spent over an hour meeting old friends and making new ones among the crowds of happy seniors. Bob Chiarelli showed considerable interest in visiting the booths since he was, “getting up there” himself. There was great participaton in the 50/50 draw and the Silent Auction with its 30 plus items. “Please do this again next year” was a request heard from many of the visitors as they left. It’s too early to nail down final numbers, but apparently this year’s fair raised close to $17,000 to the delight of Chair Houston-Lambert who headed the Fair Committee.
