After a memorable debut early this year, Sooke Talks is back on Friday, Nov. 2 from 7 to 9 pm to showcase a second fraction of the fascinating people living in our midst.
Some are familiar faces locally, others less so. All are donating their time for the second in a series of special fundraising evenings on behalf of needed upgrades to the EMCS Community Theatre.
Finding your passion and sparkle is the theme that unites the latest group of Sooke Talks presenters. $15 tickets are available at Shoppers Drug Mart, the Stick in the Mud Coffeehouse and at the EMCS Society office at Edward Milne Community School.
The line-up includes a charming 9-year-old artist featured at this year’s Sooke Fine Arts Show and an EMCS grad who discovered much about himself on an epic cross-Canada cycling trip.
Other speakers include the co-founder of the legendary Sooke Harbour House; a Journey Middle School teacher who creates customized sneakers for sports heroes and pop stars; and a psychologist who understands how mythology can serve us in reclaiming our own power following life’s inevitable losses.
Tania Ehman will return as the evening’s Master of Ceremonies. A veteran coach with Sooke Harbour Toastmasters, she and her colleagues have worked with the speakers to fine tune their presentations over the last few months. Toastmasters is gain co-presenting the evening with the EMCS Society.
