Welcome to Community Calendar!

Welcome to the first issue of Community Calendar, the new weekly newsletter from Canstar Community News, which publishes the East and West editions of the Free Press Community Review.

My name is John Kendle, I'm the managing editor of Canstar, and I hope you'll enjoy what we have to offer in our newspapers, on our website,, and here in the Community Calendar newsletter.

We're hoping to turn this newsletter into a new kind of community billboard — a place where we can tell people about the events, activities and meetings taking place in your areas. Everything from the bridge club at the nearby 55-plus hall to rock concerts at Canada Life Centre and anything in between, from sports registration dates at your community club to where and when you can find a local farmers' market.

However, we won't be able to do this without your input.

We need you to tell us about those events, concerts, club meetings and activities using our online events calendar at

What’s this, you ask? An events calendar? Yes, we have now created a reader-driven database of events and activities for you to use.

You’ll find it in the blue menu bar at If you work for or represent a community group or organization that runs or presents events and acitivities, you can add them to the calendar where other readers and viewers can find them online. They may even show up in the events highlights we will feature in this newsletter each week.

I've included a select list of upcoming events below and I'd like to encourage you to check out the full database online.

And: if you'd like to get this newsletter and its event listings every Monday, sign up to receive this letter by clicking on the embedded invitation above.

I hope you enjoy Community Calendar. I'll see you next week...

Sundays are for singing

It’s been a long winter and an even longer pandemic. While singing in the shower can help with personal renewal, it’s time to kick that up with singing with others even while in various stages of a lockdown. That can happen every Sunday afternoon thanks to Margaret’s Choir, Café Nuages and James Keelaghan. Read More
