If you were like me, your holidays were pretty crazy busy. It has been a wild couple of weeks, but now we are back on track. I hope everyone’s holidays were great.
Today was the Pancake Breakfast at the Killaloe Friendship Club. I went out for some yummy pancakes and good friends. Catch the next one on the first Sunday of February.

There are a lot of exciting changes happening at CHCR at this time. The building hosting CHCR has just been bought by Peter Benner. Renovations have begun on the building. This will include a sound-proofed booth for broadcasting and much more.
CHCR has been going along for ten years now and it is time for changes. There are so many plans for CHCR to make it as successful as possible. In the future, it is sure to contribute even more to our community. The future is bright for CHCR.
Volunteers are welcome. Contact Peter Benner to see what you can do to help convert the building into a great radio station and community centre.

Wilno Film Festival

The 5th Annual Wilno Film Festival was a great success. Held at the Wilno Station Inn, it brought together many independent films and musicians. Thursday night started it off with films and the Songwriter’s Showcase. Friday showed the TV pilot of Backwoods Gourmet, directed by Barry Goldie. On Saturday, the film Griefwalker was shown, with its creator presiding afterwards for discussion of it’s themes. The night was rounded off with Ian Tamblyn performing some of his songs and the 100 mile buffet feast prepared by the Red Canoe Café. On Sunday, it was wrapped up with the Dorothy Day story and a documentary of Madonna House. It was an insightful and enjoyable experience for all those who came out. I highly recommend marking it down on your calendars and attending this event in the future.
