A Black (Bow)Tie Affair

I want to start of this post by expressing how amazing
the Eva Rothwell Resource Centre is! I know I just wrote
about them in my last Roll Call, but I consistently see
this centre in conjunction with the Robert Land Community Association, involved in community initiatives all over the city (Steel City Race, Park’n Party, Bow-Tie Day… etc). A sincere thank you to everyone involved, you are effectively displaying Hamilton’s strengths.

Continuing on: This Tuesday, August 28th is
Bow Tie Day Hamilton, an extension of the
The Tie Bar’s “National Bow Tie Day”. The bow tie
promises to not only make the citizens of Hamilton ridiculously good-looking (as if we need it), it will also express a topic that is enormously significant: literacy.

The Eva Rothwell Resource Centre is in the process of introducing a “Literacy Express” to the Keith community. The Express is just that: an 85-foot rail cart which has recently been fitted with oak shelving units for books, a quiet area for reading and studying as well as a room tailored for homework and tutoring. This upcoming Bow-Tie Day will work to raise money for this necessary addition, with the use of a cafe and restaurant called Radius.

Radius, located at 151 James Street South (near Augusta) will hold a Bow Tie Day event from 6:30pm – 10:00pm. The event is $20 at the door, unless of course you are wearing a bow tie, which cuts your cost down to $10. All of the proceeds raised at Radius during this time will go directly toward the funding of resources to fully refurbish the Literacy Express.

I hope to see you there!
