Jan and Greg are in desperate need of some time alone.  Their marriage is on shaky ground, and an isolated farmhouse seems the perfect place to regain their footing.  It soon becomes clear, however, that everything is not as it seems.  Their idyllic get-away becomes a nightmare in this heart-stopping thriller, as we accompany our characters on the twists and turns of a deliciously sinister and spooky adventure.

Celebrating the Success of Our Black Families
in York Region Black History Event

Saturday, February, 17 2018

11:00 a.m. – 2:30 p.m.

Location: Thornlea Secondary School
8075 Bayview Avenue  

The York Region Alliance of African Canadian Communities cordially invites you to join us for a special Black History Month event where along with our allies and supporters, we as an African Canadian community will be “Celebrating our Success ... A foundation for the Future”

We will be highlighting the achievements and contributions of people of African ancestry to this great country generally, and York Region specifically.

Our Theme:
Uplifting our Black Families
Bridging the Past with the Present
Navigating the Present into the Future

We study the past not to continue living it, but to help define our future.

“A people without knowledge of their past history, origins, and culture is like a tree without roots”
(Marcus Garvey)

This will be many opportunities to network with many York Region public service agencies, and community organizations, and also hear our story from dynamic speakers including several “Firsts” among our community to achieve success in the Region by breaking through that glass ceiling.

We will be catering for the entire family. There will be a Black Marketplace, Drumming, and Entertainment for the young ones.

Come and be inspired, learn, share, and connect. 

We look forward to seeing you.
