November 26, 2012

Duncan M. Stokes
Over 20 years ago, Canadian Musician/Actor Tom Jackson began a project called The Huron Carole. It was developed as a group of musical entertainers who shared the common goal to raise funds and awareness for Canada’s hungry.


For the first time since 2004, The Huron Carole is back. This year, Tom is joined by fellow artists Sarah Slean, Matt Dusk, Susan Aglukark and Dell Barber for a 23-city tour this year.


The group (minus Barber) will be stopping in Winnipeg December 3 at the Centennial Concert Hall starting at 8:00 PM. Proceeds from The Huron Carole will be donated to Winnipeg Harvest.



Congratulations to all the recipients Queen’s Diamond Jubilee medals. More than 60,000 medals were awarded this year, to mark the 2012 celebrations of the 60th anniversary of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II’s accession to the Throne as Queen of Canada.


Winnipeg Harvest was thrilled when six people it nominated for the medal were chosen as recipients, having been judged as having made a significant contribution to a particular province, territory, region or community within Canada.


The following people will be awarded medals for their contributions, as nominated by Winnipeg Harvest. 



1.         Garth Buchko, Winnipeg Football Club

2.         John Graham, Canada Safeway

3.         Larry McIntosh, Peak of the Market

4.         Rhoda Kernested, Teulon & District Food Bank

5.         Ann Ledwich, long-time volunteer at Winnipeg Harvest

6.         Marla Somersall, Executive Director, Samaritan Ministries



Winnipeg Harvest will again be welcoming 107.9 CJNU-FM on site. They will be broadcasting live from 1095 Winnipeg Avenue from November 28 through December 23 this year and we are once again pleased to be the host sponsor for them again through the lead-up to the holiday season.


Listen for interviews with Winnipeg Harvest team members and supporters as well as the wonderful music which makes 107.9 FM unique to Winnipeg.
