Joe was asked what prompted him to en­ter the con­test. Orig­i­nally he said he wasn’t go­ing to en­ter. How­ever, af­ter ex­press­ing doubt that he could win to his mother, Joe con­fessed that she prompted him to en­ter, point­ing out he would never know un­less he tried. Joe, at his mother’s urg­ing, did en­ter and was awarded the schol­ar­ship on Au­gust 2nd at the Ro­tary of the Boundary meet­ing held at the Duf­ferin Heights Golf Course. and mu­si­cal tour­ing event, which was cre­ated by the fa­mous French vir­tu­oso pi­anist, com­poser, writer and poet Marc Vella and will cover 5000 kilo­me­tres in this prov­ince, will ac­tu­ally per­form in North Hat­ley on Au­gust 11th, and in Sher­brooke on Au­gust 11th and 12th.

This tour­ing group of vol­un­teer mu­si­cians of the high­est cal­i­bre have been bring­ing not only free con­certs to peo­ple around the world for the last ten years, but a mes­sage of love that they share with their ‘guerilla kisses and hugs’. Their rea­son for tour­ing ev­ery year, as de­scribed on their web­site, is: “to reignite in the hearts of men the fire of joy and the faith in hu­man­ity.” They typ­i­cally will visit ru­ral ar­eas, pris­ons, hos­pi­tals, se­niors res­i­dences and re­ha­bil­i­ta­tion cen­tres.

“The tour be­gan on Au­gust 4th, in Mon­treal, and we were able to get them to come to North Hat­ley,” ex­plained North Hat­ley coun­cil­lor, Ger­ald Os­tiguy. “It’s nice that we got the four churches and the Mer­chant’s As­so­ci­a­tion to sup­port their visit,” he added. A spe­cial event has been or­ga­nized around their visit: the Fete de la Paix, l’Amour et la Fra­ter­nité. The tour­ing com­pany will ar­rive at River Park at 11:00 am this Thurs­day to meet with peo­ple and spread their mes­sage on non-vi­o­lent con­flict res­o­lu­tion. This will be fol­lowed by a free corn roast and pot luck lunch at noon and then a free con­cert at 2:00, also in River Park. Later, at 8:00 pm, they will per­form in Sher­brooke at the Sanc­tu­aire de Beau­voir with the Uni­ver­sal Choir, and the fol­low­ing day at Belvedere Park, at noon, with the Je­unes mu­si­ciens de monde, and at 4:15 at the Fes­ti­val des tra­di­tions du monde at Parc Cen­trale.

The Car­a­van will be trav­el­ling around Que­bec un­til Septem­ber 5th, 2011.
