Attention Eel Ground Community Members, Parents, Music enthusiasts, etc...

In celebration of International Youth Day there will be a "Meet & Greet" with Juno nominee Craig Cardiff!

Craig Cardiff is a Juno nominated singer songwriter from Ontario. He loves playing his songs and engaging people, especially youth in his passion for music and its ability to make positive change.

On Friday August 7th, 2015 at 11:00am, Juno nominee Craig Cardiff will be facilitating a “Mini Song Writers Workshop” at the Eel Ground Health Centre.

There will be a free BBQ at 12:30pm and Craig Cardiff will also be performing an outdoor concert at 1:00pm.

Community members are encouraged to bring the whole family, lawn chairs or blankets to sit on, relax and enjoy the musical entertainment. Hope to see you there!

Here is what to expect at the workshop tomorrow:


Craig has done workshops for anyone from young kids to adults with developmental disabilities to professional working musicians, there are no musical requirements, it is more geared toward creative writing as a whole. The idea is that Craig spends time with the group showing them different creative writing techniques that he uses with the goal of having them write a song together by the end of the workshop. All that the participants would need to have with them is a pen and some paper!


Youth participating in various sports activities are heading to Woodstock NB starting today July 27th until Friday, July 31st for the 2015 New Brunswick Indian Summer Games. The most recent schedule that has been shared will be posted in pdf form below for your reference.
