Spotlight on Gordie’s Coffee House

Did you know that every Thursday, Glenelm is home to one of Winnipeg’s most popular musical events, attracting fans from all corners of our city to hear talented acts perform in a wide variety of styles. Here’s the low down on Gordie’s from organizer Lexx Jefferson:

Gordie’s Coffee House is located inside Gordon-King Memorial United Church on Thursdays from 7-11 pm from September to June, with a little break for Christmas.

It is a 1960s style coffee house that showcases live local musicians and includes an open mic segment after the featured artists. Don’t be surprised to see Juno nominated artists show up in our little Glenelm coffee house!

 We are part Art Gallery, part Lending Library, part Games Room and always warm & welcoming. We serve Fair Trade Coffee & Tea and beautiful homemade desserts. Doors open at 7:00pm and first set is at 8:00pm, so call up an old friend or come out and make a new friend.

Oh ya, you can check us out on Facebook, too!

Some upcoming shows…

October 19th: Lois Gillespie
October 26th: Hearts on Fire
November 2nd: Keiran Shae
November 9th: Manon Timschel
November 16th: Trillionaires
November 23rd: Jelly B & K-Mart Shoppers

Help Gordie’s Help Others

In lieu of admission, Gordie’s Coffee House has a long-standing tradition of collecting non-perishables for Winnipeg Harvest. But right now, in response to exceptionally high need from another organization that feeds the hungry, Gordie’s is running a special food drive to help West Broadway Community Ministry’s soup kitchen.

Gordie’s invites all Glenelm residents to help them help others by dropping off non-perishables during their coffee house on Thursday evenings from 7-11pm. Especially needed at present: canned meat/fish, oatmeal packets, canned baked beans, canned vegetable and fruit, soup and pasta sauce.

GeNA Seed & Plant Swap on Saturday, October 7th

All Glenelm gardeners are invited to bring extra seeds, bulbs, roots and shoots to Gordon King Memorial United Church (127 Cobourg) from 10am to noon next Saturday, October 7th for our first seed and plant swap!

Seed/plant swapping is a great way to meet other area gardeners and diversify your garden space, and fall is an excellent time to divide up your perennials and think about what space in your garden you’d like to fill with something new.

If you are interested but can’t make it this Saturday, don’t worry! We’ll do this again in the spring.

Please bring your offerings in labelled envelopes, baggies, or packets, or pots or bags for larger plants. You can rsvp to Mellanie at Feel free to bring a friend!

Any plants left over at the end of the swap will be donated to the cemetery.

Highlights from GeNA’s “Come Meet Your Neighbour” Picnic 

Close to 200 people came out to meet new neighbours and connect with old ones at GeNA’s first-ever community picnic on Sunday, September 10th. The weather cooperated perfectly for us at Elmwood (Roxy) Park and we enjoyed a memorable afternoon of games, live music, desserts, and conversation.

Thank you to all who helped make the event possible and to everyone who came out to celebrate with the community! Here are just a few photos from the day; we welcome your photo submissions to add to the website.

For those who have asked: yes! We are planning to do it again next year. Mark your calendars for Sunday, September 9th, 2018.

Welcome to Glenelm, Lime & Pine Hair.Spa & AJ’s Collectibles and More

A warm Glenelm welcome to two new businesses that recently opened on Henderson between Noble and Cobourg: Lime & Pine Hair.Spa at 228 Henderson and AJ’s Collectibles and More at 220 Henderson.

There was an article about Lime & Pine in the Canstar Herald a few weeks back — some of you may recall that before this building was home to its previous occupant, Liberty Tax, it was actually the Kelvin Beauty Shop for many decades. And, if you haven’t noticed the fun artwork painted on back of the AJ’s Collectibles building, be sure to go take a look at the “super” job they have done. There’s an article on AJ’s in the Herald this week too.
