Legends ready to answer questions at ‘Croft Talks LIVE

Croft Talks - LegendsThere are some people that just seem to be a foundational part of our community and three of them have agreed to join ‘Croft Talks LIVE host Barb Shaw on Jan. 26 at the Village Playhouse to talk about how they became legends in North Hastings.

The January line-up features local Funeral Director Tim Baragar and while many know Tim for the support, comfort and care he provides to those at difficult times, he’s moving into a new role as a political advocate.

Over the past year Tim has been doing interviews and spreading the word about the provincial Estate Assessment Tax. Newly rolled-out at the start of 2015, Tim has been getting some traction educating people and pushing the Wynne government to consider changes to the tax that targets people in their deepest moments of grief and despair.

Joining Tim Baragar to share stories is Nan McGhee. Nan will be making time in her busy travel schedule to share stories from her CJNH days, insights from her council adventures and she’s also going to give the audience a sneak peek into some of her current projects and plans.

“I am really looking forward to interviewing both Tim and Nan,” says host Barb Shaw. “They are fabulous storytellers and they truly could each have their own show. I am also thrilled to have Joey Shulman returning for another visit. Joey was such a hit at the last show that we really needed him to come back – and thankfully he agreed! He’ll be doing a community update for us and joining everyone for a Q & A segment. I really think these three legends are going to deliver a great experience for our audience.”

‘Croft Talks LIVE is a monthly talk show hosted at the Village Playhouse in Bancroft. The show is recorded and released as a podcast but being part of the live, interactive show is something you don’t want to miss.

‘Croft Talks LIVE is sponsored this month by Deuce Tattoos and the Bickert Family and Marlow Bickert will be on stage to do the sponsor’s welcome. For those who don’t know Marlow, this future legend managed to steal the last show from the comfort of the audience with his tough questions and fabulous humour.

“Croft Talks LIVE is produced by Plan B Communications Consulting in partnership with the Bancroft Village Playhouse. Tickets are $5 and the door and the bar open at 6pm on Jan. 26.
