Bonnie Doon’s NFB Films and Lunch
Seniors are invited to a get-together each month at Bonnie Doon Hall, 9240 93 Street. It’s an opportunity to see an interesting mix of National Film board documentaries and visit with others. Films start at 10:30 and everyone is welcome, at no charge. A light lunch is served at 11:45 for $2. The hall is wheelchair accessible. The next get-together will take place on November 17 when we'll view two documentaries with a connection to the sea.
Charting the Frozen Sea, 1982, 25 minutes. Canadian Hydrologists on the C.S.S. Hudson work against time charting a sixteen km-wide shipping corridor during the short season on the Beaufort Sea.
Debris, 2015, 15 minutes. Artist Pete Clarkson creates a tribute to the 2011 earthquake and tsunami in Japan with objects that have washed ashore, connecting Canadians with the people of the Tohoku region in Japan.

Memories of Bonnie Doon Project
In 2016 we are on a quest to locate stories from people who have special memories of Bonnie Doon. You can send us your own story, or you can ask for a community volunteer to conduct an interview. We ask for at least one photo for every story sent in. Your story can relate to an event held at Bonnie Doon Hall, your church, Rutherford School, Mill Creek Ravine, or even in your own home. We are looking for those special moments…the surprises, the honours and sometimes even the disasters.
We are more than halfway to our goal of 50 stories, so don’t delay. This part of the project will wrap up in December when we will look at all the stories and begin to plan a book for publication. It will commemorate 100 years of active community involvement in Bonnie Doon, an anniversary we will celebrate in 2018.
