We’re only a quarter of the way through 2015 and it’s already been a VERY busy year. We’ve barely had a moment’s rest in March, there was so much happening! Here’s just some of what went on:
The biggest event we had this month was our annual fundraising gala, in which we celebrated the Celtic Spirit of Ireland!

MCs Margaret Gallagher and Fred Lee addressing the attendees
There was some great entertainment throughout the evening
You couldn’t turn around without seeing someone doing something!
We had two great openings, first with Kaha:wi Dance Theatre’s TransMigration:
Kaha:wi Dance Theatre Artistic Director Santee Smith with Heather Redfern
Cultch Ladies: Caitrin Innis (Development Coordinator), Zoe Forsyth (Concierge and Volunteer Coordinator), Nicole McLuckie (Director of Patron Development) and Cindy Reid (Managing Director)

And then we had Obaaberima from Buddies in Bad Times, which the audience enjoyed talking about post-show
Kaha:wi Dance also hosted a Pow Wow Boot Camp:

It wasn’t all fun though, as we said farewell to our fantastic Senior Design and Web Coordinator, Isa Chernets
We did get a lot of puppy love though, as we welcomed Murphy to The Cultch family!
And to end March, we have a little tease for what’s coming up in April, as the Famous Puppet Death Scenes set was loaded in yesterday!
There are so many crates, they’re not only over flowing outside…
But even into the lobby as well!
It’s a lot of work, putting a set together

The set is starting to rise!

Or looking down from the balcony?
It was a pretty packed month, and we can’t wait for what’s next! Remeber you can always check out our Flickr page for more great photos! Be sure you come down and join us so you don’t miss any of the fun!
