Hopefully, the VW campervolks are better drivers than Almonte native son, James Naismith, the inventor of basketball. His famously bad driving but otherwise excellent character is celebrated in the play Naismith is Colourblind (And He Can't Drive). This musical production presents the humour and history of Dr. Naismith. Showtimes are Friday, June 8, at 7:30pm and Saturday June 9 at 2pm and 7:30pm. All the proceeds from these performances will go towards the Hub's palliative care initiative.
If you need a bit of fuel for all that pedalling, stop by Equator Coffee Roasters on Saturday at 2pm to Meet the Coffee Farmer. Guatemalan coffee producer and political activist, Leocadio Juracan, will tell stories and help raise awareness of the plight of Guatemalan coffee farmers and your connection to their lives through every cup of fair trade coffee you drink.
