Spend Sunday In July at Cooper's Hawk Vineyards

Posted July 6, 2014 @ 2:45PM

Jazz Up Your Summer and Support the New Hospice Residence

Each Sunday in July, Cooper’s Hawk Vineyards will be filled with the smooth sounds of world-renowned jazz flautist, Alexander Zonjic, and numerous other musicians for the Jazz on the Vine Festival of the Arts.

Jazz on the Vine is a local festival, celebrating world class music, fine wine, food and friends. Tickets are $45 per person and include entry to watch the concert, a glass of wine and one gourmet food item. Proceeds from the concert series will support the Hospice Erie Shores Campus.

“This is a great way to really kick things off and get into the fundraising events for Erie Shores,” said Carol Derbyshire, executive director of The Hospice of Windsor and Essex County. “Holding something out in the county and having the proceeds go directly back to help build that residence is just fantastic.”

Jazz on the Vine takes place every Sunday in July from 3 p.m. to 7 p.m. at Cooper’s Hawk Vineyards in Harrow, ON. For more information, please visit www.coopershawkvineyards.com

Bike To The Fireworks June 23, 2014

Posted June 21, 2014 @ 11:44AM

Beat the traffic and ride your bicycle downtown to see the spectacular fireworks over the Detroit River on Monday, June 23rd, 2014! To make Active Transportation the obvious choice,  the Windsor Bicycling Committee will provide valet bike parking service just minutes from the Riverfront and Festival Plaza.

Beginning at 7pm, you can bring your bike to Charles Clark Square (University Avenue East, across from City Hall) and lock it up safely in the WBC's valet bike parking corral. Volunteers from the committee will be on hand all evening, watching the bikes and ensuring their safety.

Cyclists are asked to bring a lock for their bike- the volunteers will use the lock to keep your bike even safer while they watch over it. Each rider will receive a ticket to hold onto during the evening; you'll have to return this ticket in order to retrieve your bike. This free service will be available for everyone from 7pm until 11:30pm.

Bike safety literature and Windsor bike trail maps will also be available!

Remember to wear your helmet and light-coloured clothing, and don't forget to put lights on your bikes for the ride home after the fireworks!

More information can be found at cyclewindsor.ca, or by calling 3-1-1.
