It might have got cold outside this November, but we’ve been heatin’ up the Masonic Theatre! If you’ve been tuning in to Out of the Fog, you’ve seen it all! And if you haven’t, lemme tell you about it.
Local owners, award winners, changemakers
November’s Out of the Fog guests featured top-tier local entrepreneurs like Jon Loder of Civic Duty annnd Relic, Chris Hollett of Jiffy Cabs and Empire West Auto Pro, Brent Smith of Newfoundland Chocolate Company, and Abu Sayed of Wildhood Clothing. These four are doing wicked stuff for locally sourced products and community-minded social enterprise. Then there’s Kim Paddon, owner of Whink and Sparkes Design, who just took away the Newfoundland and Labrador Organization of Women Entrepreneurs’ Trendsetter Award!
We also had Gemma Hickey of the Pathways Foundation and Elling Lien of Unpossible, two groups that are all about supporting people in our city and province. And Jean Smith of NIFCO fame shook things up with her always fantastic perspective and hilarious storytelling.
History and holidays
To commemorate Remembrance Day 2017, Frances Ennis and Bob Wakeham, authors of I Remain, Your Loving Son from Flanker Press, joined us to share stories on their connection to Beaumont Hamel. Plus, we started gearin’ up for the Christmas season with Shelia Williams from Spirit of Newfoundland and Ryan Davis from the Mummers Festival.
And speaking of festivities… This month’s musical guests included Craig Young and Chris Andrews of Shanneyganock, Waterfront Fire, Kellie Loder, Rachel Cousins, and Jenn and Sarah of The Halliday Band.
