It’s time to spring into the season and shake off the cold. On Saturday, April 20th, The Fenelon Falls & District Chamber of Commerce is hosting annual favourite event, Easter Eggstravaganza. Children will search the town with a map of participating sponsors from 10 am to 1 pm to collect stamps which are redeemed for treat bags at the Easter Bunny Headquarters. Additional family friendly activities include crafts, face painting, cookie decorating, and a bunny petting zoo. We hope to see you there!

As the days get longer and our thoughts turn towards spring, St. James Anglican Church is once again offering a film series during the five weeks leading up to Easter. This year’s theme, “On the Way Home,” features five films that explore the themes of leaving home, returning home and making home together.
Each evening begins with a screening of a film and then a very short discussion with the audience of the film’s themes. The discussion will be facilitated by Brian Walsh and Sylvia Keesmaat, who have chosen a mix of old films and new, and a variety of genres. Join us for as many films as you like. There is no charge. Refreshments will be served. All films begin at 7pm.
March 13: The Wizard of Oz (US, 1939 - Musical)
There’s no place like home. The classic story of Dorothy who thinks she has lost her home, only to learn that home will never leave her abandoned.
March 20: Brooklyn (Ireland, 2015 - Romantic Drama)
A story of immigration, love and home.
March 27: Where do we go Now? (Lebanon, 2011 - Comedic Musical)
The women of an isolated Lebanese town go to extreme (and hilarious) lengths to maintain peace and a sense of home between Christian and Muslim neighbours.
April 3: Pride (UK, 2015 - Comedy, Drama)
What happens when the LGBTQ community decides to support the miners in the Welsh mine strike of 1984? Whom do we welcome into our homes?
