The Travelling Mabels in Burns Lake
The third performance in the Lakes District Arts Council performing arts season takes place at 7:30 p.m. on Monday, Nov. 6 at Lakes District Secondary School. The Travelling Mabels is a folk and country female trio full of spirit, spunk and laughter. Collectively, their songs bring a wealth of life experience to the stage. Singularly, each woman stands alone vocally, but once you hear the combined harmony blend, you will know why these three women came together.

Programs of interest at CNC
The Lakes District campus of the College of New Caledonia (CNC) is offering ‘existentialist philosophy and gesture drawing’ this fall. In this short 12-hour course (four three-hour classes) students will be dipping their metaphorical toes into some of the tantalizing philosophical thoughts of such thinkers as Michel Foucault, Martin Heidegger and Jean-Paul Sartre.
To help ease everyone into the sometimes mind-bending worlds these philosophers have perceived, students will be taking time out to explore their immediate world through gesture drawing – a perfect, relaxing, and creative accompaniment to the cognitive stretches of existentialist philosophy. CNC offers free tuition for this program.
The Lakes District campus will also be offering an introduction to Aboriginal studies this term, as well as an introduction to First Nations studies in the Lakes District. For more information about these and other courses, visit the Lakes District campus or phone 250-692-1700.
