O hold me Burners, the world has gone mad. In this grateful gifting time of year I wish for hearts full of peace for each of us and some global warming of the fuzzy kind. Here is what I know. Tell me something good.

What happened to the website? Well, it’s dead. Long live the website! Sadly our local host had some conflict with their provider that resulted in us losing all our content. So thank you to everyone who helped out with funding the hosting of and I am sad that it’s gone but there’s not much to be done about that. It is what it is : D life goes on.

I want to thank everyone who has come out over the years and made our North Bay Burners Salon series the smashing success it has been. I have loved meeting each and every one of you, and it has been super fun co-hosting with those of you in the community who stepped up and welcomed us into your hearts and homes.

We will still have our monthly event feeding the homeless at the mission (see below) and I plan to schedule outings for us, so don’t worry, we’re not going away. Just coming back in a new format. Look for info here about trips to visit cool Burner things happening in our region. And if you know of any and want us all to join you let me know! There is a form here for telling me about stuff for announce and that is a good way to get the news to the people about cool things to do.

The Last Salon will be on the 12th at the ice skating rink. Come out for some hot chocolate by the fire! It’s a sweet holiday hang out. Nothing more relaxing than watching the Zamboni go around and around…

Come celebrate the holiday season with some Woodstock Zamboni! We are at the ice skating rink this month. See you there.
