Music Returning to Belfountain !! – April 3rd BCO Fundraiser at Goodlot Farm

Greetings all!

Is it spring? Or is it at least close? I’m thinking it’s close – at least closer than last month. Time to celebrate! How about a bit of live music???

East of Here, a remarkable band from Ontario, is ready to share their magic with us on Wednesday, April 3rd, at the Goodlot Farm and Farmstead Brewing Company Oast Barn….many thanks to Phil and Gail Winters for hosting this event. There’s room for 50 people and I expect this will sell out in no time. Come thirsty, listen to smashing tunes, and leave happy! 

Tickets will be $50 per person, and as usual, you can let me know, e transfer me the $50 at and I’ll reserve a place for you. Simple as that. 

And yes, the ticket price is a bit steeper than I usually charge. But for good reason….read on….


It is fitting that Goodlot, whose purpose is “To build and play together so that our Community is connected to Each Other and to the Land, will be the location for this musical evening. Because this evening is more than simply a celebration of music. It is also a fund raising evening for the Belfountain Community Organization (BCO). The BCO is a group of residents who are committed to preserving the rural, cultural and environmental integrity of the hamlet of Belfountain – and right now, that is all at risk.  If The Manors Of Belfountain – the housing development that is planned for the south end of the village – goes through, it will damage not only the character of the community, but the domestic well water, the fisheries, endangered species, the landscape and oh so much more. 

The BCO is going to go to the Ontario Land Tribunal to voice their concerns regarding NEC’s approval of the development. To do that will cost about 100K. That’s lot of funds needed by a small community.

This music night will be designed to do a few things. First, it will raise our collective spirits and bring some much needed joy to all of us. That’s a priority. But the BCO is also hoping to raise a bit of money to support their efforts. So along with great music, there will be a Silent Auction with all sorts of wonderful prizes and services. 

Sooooooooo, please plan on celebrating the spring, the music, the amazing Goodlot Farm and Farmstead Brewery,  and hope for Belfountain on Wednesday night, April 3rd! Let me know ASAP if you’d like to buy tickets. It’s only a little over 4 weeks from today!



PLEASE share this note with everyone! Pass it on to family members, to local businesses, post on FB, Instagram, wherever you can so we can get a full house! If you’ve got something that you will donate for the Silent Auction, let me know and I’ll make sure it is picked up. And if you want to top up your $50 to support the cause, I will make sure it goes directly to the BCO!
