A big thanks goes out to Gary Deatherage and Lorne Eckersley. Gary notified Lorne about the possible closure of The Venue and Lorne
wrote a news story on it for The Advance based on this blog column. It was a surprise to me and I'm thankful for the coverage to help in getting the word out there. I hope it will help generate a grass roots movement to save The Venue in whatever form it will exist. You can read Lorne's article online here. I have had offers already from groups in the community that have buildings to operate The Venue in and these are directly relate to the article. But first things first, we have to get back to some level of normalcy with our lives, how long will that take? Who knows. In the mean time, stay safe, keep being creative, don't stop performing via online platforms and for your own good health and that of others - wash your hands.
