The Freak-Show Circus Is Coming to Town

Published

 

Looking or something different to do this Halloween?

Volunteer Central and Undercurrent Brewing are teaming for Boo’s + Brews: A Freak-Show Cabaret on October 25, 2019.

The evening is set to include rarely seen in Red Deer circus performers doing freak-show themed acts (when is the last time you saw a contortionist?) – all right in the middle of the brewery! This is all in part to help raise funds towards building a thriving community through volunteerism. Enjoy a freakishly-fun evening that includes two live circus performances, a tarot card-reading gypsy, 50/50 and raffles.

Limited tickets are available. Get your friends together to come join us for a disturbingly fun night out unlike anything else being offered in Red Deer.

Round up the staff and purchase 4 tickets for $120 (single tickets are $35). Package include 8 drink tickets, a delicious assortment of tapas including mini chicken & waffles, tortellini skewers, and a corazon chocolate and hazelnut mousse dessert. Single tickets are $35, and include 2 drink tickets, tapas and dessert.

Tickets available on Eventbrite: https://www.eventbrite.ca/e/boos-brews-a-freakshow-cabaret-tickets-73866967087

Alternatively, avoid paying Eventbrite fee’s, and email Bryan @ bmchale@undercurrentbrewing.com to pay by e-transfer!

 

Volunteer Central strives to build a strong, connected and engaged community through volunteerism.

Achieving Mental Health is an Everyday Task

Achieving Mental Health is an Everyday Task

Duane (not his real name) shared, “I have dealt with my depression on my own for over 15 years, with the aid of anti-depressant drugs. I wasn’t even aware of the anxiety issues until they were pointed out to me just last year. Approximately 4 years ago I did seek therapy during one particularly low period in my mood. I carried on until April of last year when I had a suicide attempt that showed me I need additional help from outside resources including Mental Health, Red Deer PCN, and my company EFAP. Seeing how my suicide attempt impacted my immediately family was my impetus to get additional help.

I took the Red Deer PCN Happiness Basics program. I believe the course helped me to see that I have to make a daily practice of the skills I have been taught. I can’t just try and apply them when I’m feeling down. By doing this I have levelled off my moods; I am not walking on air but I seem to be avoiding the deep depressive periods I had in the past. I am thankful for this change in my daily life.

For anyone else struggling with depression, I would suggest they attend the Red Deer PCN groups and actively participate. Very good tools are provided but they are of no use if not implemented in your daily life. I will continue with one on one therapy. I am now taking the Anxiety to Calm group and I will apply the skills I learn every day!  I also will continue the medications prescribed by my psychiatrist.”

Always remember achieving mental health is an everyday task!
