52. Kingsbridge Centre + RUNA

One of the things I love about living in a small community is the way people so often face adversity head on, together.

Such was the case a few years ago when the community of Kingsbridge experienced the closure of their Church. For decades it had been the hub of the area, the place where a large, vibrant, rural community came to meet.

Fast forward a few years and these days “St. Joseph’s Kingsbridge Community” (SJKC) is a registered charity with the goal of providing a large multi use facility for the residents and visitors of rural Southwestern Ontario.

On the podcast this week, we’re meeting up with an old high-school friend of mine, Marianne Hogan who has been a big part of the transformation. We’ll get the story of how the historic church and rectory was purchased and transformed into a spot that would host community gatherings, concerts and performances, rental options and a lot more.

Also joining Milli and I, a very good friend of ours, Cheryl Prashker, who wears many hats including Percussionist for the Celtic Roots band RUNA and Artistic Director – The Goderich Celtic Roots Festival … RUNA coming to Kingsbridge …. We’ll get details on that show and maybe a little peak at what’s coming up for Celtic Festival this year as well.

Really, it’s a bunch of old friends hanging out today talking about things that make all feel like we have A Life That’s Good.
