Comedian Ruth Wiebe laughing live from Herman Prior

Thanks to a HelpAge Canada grant, the Herman Prior Activity Centre (HPAC) has begun promoting series of online entertainment events dubbed Encore Series that are free to enjoy.

“All of our concerts are presented through a grant provided by HelpAge Canada, helping older persons live with dignity in Canada and around the world since 1975,” says Christopher Kitchen, HPAC staff in charge of organizing the online entertainment.

“Our plan is to have a series of concerts (and events) over the next nine months, offering some of the best performers in Portage la Prairie in music, theatre, comedy and storytelling. These concerts will be presented for free on ZOOM Wednesday afternoons.

Information about the concert and the Meeting Room ID necessary for watching will be put up once or twice on our Facebook ( page prior to the concert.

Johnny Dietrich opened the series on Feb. 10. Ruth Wiebe will perform on Feb. 17; Terry Human on Feb. 24, March 3 is being decided, Paul Shepherd (AKA Fireball Paul) is up on March 10 and Jim Unrau closes the series in March with a performance on March 31.
