What is the Heritage Festival?

posted Jul 24, 2017, 5:55 AM by Kathy Carr

Did you know Car­berry’s Main Street has been declared a designated heritage district! The only one in Manitoba I might add. And to celebrate that and the heritage that Car­berry and area is so proud of, came the Heritage Festival! As we head to our 5th festival, we look back at our previous festivals and enjoy the fact that every year we have managed to grow!
What exactly is the Heritage Festival you might ask? It is a celebration of everything that is old! Life continues to change and grow, but that is not to say that what we once had wasn’t great. And so we want to share some of the ways from days gone by. From riding in a horse drawn carriage to exploring the life of the North West Mounted Police living in a tent and cooking doughnuts over a fire. Learning about different guns such as the muzzle loader to watching hand crafting displays. Making old time recipes such as sourdough bread, or visiting the heritage breeds of animals.
Do you remember the old train station that we were so fortunate to have in this town? Well the Communities in Bloom people have brought part of it back to life and there will be a dedication ceremony. Join them and relive the past as you look at this replica!
Let’s throw in some entertainment like Swamp Gas! Add a magician, some Scottish dancers and some local talent among others and we end up with a great line up of entertainment for the afternoon on Saturday. All in the middle of the street, which somehow makes it feel even more heritage, but also so much more enjoyable!
Make sure you come early so you have time to check out the vendors and displays. Something for everyone to buy and see! Whether you are interested in raptors or buying a pie, you won’t be disappointed. BBQs and birthday cake, fresh lemonade and bonfire doughnuts, you won’t go hungry as you travel the street.
Oh, and let’s not forget the fun for the kids. From laser tag to face painting, henna tattoos to bike parade! We know your little ones will be kept busy!
Oh, and did I mention the great things happening on Friday? Kicking off the festival is the Museum’s Strawberry Social. Oh my, if you want something delicious to eat, make sure you come and join us. Yumm! The library will be celebrating their 50th birthday with some goodies and entertainment as well. After supper at one of our great restaurants you will want to come and enjoy the great music of Mark Morisseau! Whether you are a two stepper or you just enjoy the fiddle music, you don’t want to miss this dance!
And that is the basics of the 5th Annual Carberry Heritage Fes­tival! Fun for all, learn a little heritage, and get a chance to visit with those you haven’t seen for a while. We hope you take this chance to step back in time for a day. Rent a costume or raid your attic! It is so much more fun in costume! And make sure you enter the costume judging. The best costume will win you some Carberry bucks! 
See you on Main Street on August 11th and 12th!

New Therapist in Town

posted Jul 24, 2017, 5:52 AM by Kathy Carr

Kerri’s Klinic of Massage Therapy has some wonderful news… we are expanding! I am so very excited to announce that Sarah Paluch is joining the Klinic and will be starting her massage career.
Sarah grew up in Carberry where she attended the R.J. Waugh Elementary School and graduated high school at Carberry Collegiate in 2015. She immediately went to Winnipeg and has now just finished the two year full-time program at Wellington College of Remedial Massage Therapy, and is awaiting her much anticipated graduation this month. The course included learning Swedish Mas­sage, as well as being able to fix many dysfunctions of the body, allowing her to treat both muscles and bones. Throughout the two years, she has completed 2200+ hours of massage and maintained high marks throughout, so she is ready and able to offer both relaxation and therapeutic treatments.
Sarah was able to increase her knowledge and skills by taking four extra, separate workshops. They are: hot stone massage, breast massage, rib mobilization, and fascial integration.
She is a member of the Massage Therapy Assoc­iation of Manitoba (MTAM) and clients will be able to claim massage for insurance purposes by July 24th.
To start, Sarah will be working three days a week at the Klinic as she builds her clientele. Her days/hours are as follows: Mondays, 10 a.m. - 5 p.m.; Thursdays, 12 p.m. - 8 p.m.; and Fridays, 10 a.m. - 4 p.m. Massage options are ½ hour, 45 minutes, 1 hour, and hot stone massage.
She is very eager and excited to start her massage career back in Carberry, and I am beyond excited to have her join me! She will do amazing and will be able to help many people with their aches and pains, or simply destress with a relaxation massage!
Congrats Sarah!!
So be sure to book your massage appointment with her right away! Don’t wait! Call Kerri’s Klinic at 834-3347, message the Facebook page (Kerri’s Klinic of Massage Therapy), or contact Sarah directly if you have her cell number. You won’t be disappointed!
