I’m working online to get the news out for “Harry’s Mug.”

I’ve filled out the contact form on the Fort Erie Times, Niagara News Week and Trailside Bar & Grill, and that beige news paper we get for free at the local restaurants and cafe’s (sorry I forget their name!). I just remembered I have their flyer – Coffee News!

I’ve given them the details for this non profit event – Harry’s Mug which is going to be every 1st and 3rd Friday of the Month, starting Friday February 17th, 2017 from 7 pm till 9 pm est at Crystal Ridge Community Church, 241 Elmwood Avenue, Crystal Beach Ontario CAnada (google has it listed as Fort Erie but it’s actually located in Crystal Beach close to the Palmwood Restaurant – Ridgeway Rd, Tim Hortons – Ridgeway Rd, and 10 minutes from The Clarion Hotel on the corner of Buffalo Rd & Garrison Rd – Hwy #3)

It’s a social night for adults.  We are providing card games, board games, coffee, snacks for free!

We will be accepting donations for snack foods and games every Thursday from 10 am till 12 pm at the “lighthouse diner” or crystal ridge community church 241 Elmwood Avenue Crystal Beach Ontario where every thursday we serve a luncheon at 12 pm to around 60 people in the community here.

Thank you for spreading the word!

CRystal Beach Ontario CAnada – Community News Harry’s Mug on FAcebook, Donations Games

We have games!

Thank you for the donations!

Harry and I walked into the Goodwill Retail Store in Welland Ontario Canada that is across from the Welland Hospital.

We showed the “Harry’s Mug” flyer to the manager and asked if he would be able to donate some “games.”

We explained that “Harry’s Mug” is a non profit organization, and we will be relying on donations for games and snack foods from the Community in the Niagara Region Ontario Canada.

Goodwill was kind enough to provide a Yahtzee game, checkers and bingo game which is for several players.  So this is really a blessing!

Kathy donated a scrabble game and snakes and chutes game (you play it the same way as snakes and ladders)

Georgia and Allan are donating a Rummy-O and Dominoes Games as well.

We put flyers up at laundromats, avondale stores, and plan to put some more up at community help and food banks.

We’ve invited “ugly mug” to come and join us.  They meet every 2nd and 4th Friday of the month in St Catharines Ontario CAnada at the REZ Church on Queenston Street at the lights (Tasker St and Oakdale Ave meet up with Queenston Street) beside Fabio’s Pizzeria.

Limited parking in the lot, so you can also park out on the street (free after 6 pm).

It’s a drop in centre for the homeless and they provide food, snacks, coffee, cold drinks and people play card games or board games, depending on what they feel like doing.

It’s a community night.  Harold and I wanted to have a “community fun night” here in Crystal Beach Ontario Canada so were going to host this event at the Crystal Ridge Community Church (thanks to them for donating the room for our use!)

We have several volunteers helping with baking some yummy goodies for you and serving.

It’s exciting to be doing something for the community here.  Were also involved in other activities to build up this small cottage country style community that has so much to offer the local travel and tourism industry.

 

Anyone is welcome, adults only, thanks!

 

Please “like” the page and send it to your friends.. I’ve posted an events schedule on there for February 2017

We’ve been looking at the Tourism, Travel and Community Projects being developed in Crystal Beach Ontario CAnada

it’s been on our hearts – for both Harold & I to get involved more in the community here.

We see a need for job creation and it being such a small town and part of the whole picture for the Travel, Tourism for not only Crystal Beach, but Ridgeway, Stevensvile and Fort ERie Ontario Canada.

Not only will we need a infusion of “investors” to look into redeveloping this area, we want to keep our “retirement” and “beach bodies in the summer” happy and thrilled with the planning process.

One of the things I look for in this area is how to preserve the “nature” and not affect it too much. So that will be MY goal. Harry wanted to created a social club that’s free for all adults to attend.

So after discussing it with Pastor Frank Kiss at the Crystal Ridge Community Church located on Elmwood Ave (close to Ridgeway Rd and Tim Hortons just turn at the lights at the Bargain Box heading West, or you can get there from Victoria Ave or Michener Rd? at the other lights up on the hill by the Water Tower, Cemetery in Crystal Beach/Ridgeway Area)

Pastor Frank consulted his “committee and board for permission to run “harry’s mug” at the community church/centre which is also known as the “light house luncheon every Thursday afternoon”

On Thursdays we have free family clothing depot from 10 am till 12 pm. Lunch is served at 12 pm till 1 pm (most of it’s gone by 12 30 pm) and you kind of want to be there around 11 am to have a coffee, sit, relax and socialize.

We are a “social” community, so why not have a fun friday night for adults to get together, have coffee, snacks and play some card or board games, or if your not a “game player” just sit and chat with others around tables.

We are looking for snack food donations and board games to play

so far we have snakes n ladders, cards, and 3 sets of 5 dice for yahtzee

so all you yahtzee lovers, come out and play at one of the tables!

Some of us want to play Euchre, others will play Rummy or fun easy games like Crazy 8’s, War, Go Fish, Skip Bo, and whatever board games are donated!

All game donations can be dropped off at the Church on Thursdays from 10 am till 1 pm, please specify if your donations are for “harry’s mug” which is what we are calling this social night.

It’s going to be on the 1st and 3rd Friday of EVERY month (if it’s really snowing alot we might just do the 3rd Friday of the month like we are in February 2017).

Our FIRST Friday fun night is scheduled for Friday February 17th, 2017 from 7 to 9 pm.

We have a team of volunteers 6 people so far that are willing to help with making goodies, and helping to set up, serve.

The volunteers will be there at 630 pm to get things ready, and doors will open at 7 pm sharp for the public, and adults to come in.

When you come in,you can grab a mug for some coffee, put your own cream, sugar in it and sit down at a table and chat with whomever wants too.

some people will be sitting down at the game tables and you can ask other’s to play a card or board game with you.

If too many want to play one game, we will take turns.

example

euchre

play game 1 to the 10 points, than you switch with other people

often we will sit and watch the game for fun, or go grab a bite to eat

we will be serving both healthy nutritious snacks (i’m targeting other diabetics like myself so we don’t have to worry about our sugar levels)

and we will also be serving the usual goodies of chips, cookies, squares and other munchies that are donated.

Pastor Frank Kiss has promised to email the surrounding churches and to invite them as well.

This is open to everyone in the public as a fun evening for adults to enjoy where you don’t have to spend a dime….

This is to show our love for our community and to bring it together…
We have invited people from St Catharines, Niagara Falls, Ridgeway, Port Colborne, Wainfleet, Welland, Crystal Beach, And Fort Erie to attend

so were looking forward to having a good batch of people.

WE got the idea from UGLY MUG which we attend in St Catharines every other Friday theirs goes from 7 pm till 10 pm

we go once in awhile to say hello to our friends there..

They have from 60 to 80 people attending on a regular basis.

Our Thursday luncheons serve 60 to 80 + people on a regular basis, so were hoping to have around the same amount if not more!

We are also working on having a regular supper time for the community here in Crystal Beach Ontario Canada, I’ll keep you posted on that idea!
