The second annual Bruce County Women’s Show will have something for the mind, body and soul when it takes over the Bruce County Museum and Cultural Centre, May 5 from 11 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.

Organizer Luz-Maria Wilson of The Huron Group said she is excited to see the creativity and engagement that events such as the Bruce County Women’s Show brings to the fore and admitted in an April interview that it was “fascinating to see the energy” during last year’s inaugural event. “Hopefully this second show we will encounter a little bit more of that,” said Wilson.

There will be two all female and timely panel discussions. “The Power of Women Transforming our Communities” will feature elected women in and around our community including Saugeen Shores Councillor Cheryl Grace, Member of Provincial Parliament Lisa Thompson, Mayor of Kincardine Anne Eadie, and Avalon Maitland District School Board Trustee Colleen Schenk. The discussion panel will be moderated by Jessica Carter of Saugeen Shores.

The second subject will delve into the uprising of the #MeToo movement and feature Kiera Merriam, co-owner and Editor of Saugeen Shores Hub; Judy Lowry, poet and founding member of Words Aloud; Sabrina Sutherland, writer and poet from Attawapiskat First Nation; and Stephanie Wilson-Chapin, Senior Director for Digital News CTV.

“The #MeToo movement indicates to me, even though we’ve been talking about this for a long, long time...it brings a new opportunity and some renewal that younger people need to focus on. How are we going to solve this equation now that we’re more aware,” said Wilson.

The second annual Bruce County Women’s Show will also feature a Zumba demonstration in which attendees can participate and Southampton’s Chakra House of Healing owner Ayse Hogan will host “Time to be the Change” that will work on tools and coping mechanisms to help the soul.

An array of local vendors will also be showcased throughout the Show and catering will be provided by Southampton’s Harrigan 100 Mile Food Market.

The event will also highlight a “Designer Bag” fundraiser in support of the Huron Shores Hospice located in Tiverton.

Tickets for the Bruce County Women’s Show are $25 and can be purchased at Kristen’s Pharmacy, 197 Albert St. S. in Southampton and the Pea Pod, 671 Goderich St. in Port Elgin.
