    These days we’re surrounded by, and rely upon, all different types of machines. They help us cook, clean, get around town, and more! Today we’ll be building some machines of our own. We’ll travel into the past in our own custom time machines, then journey back to the present to make candy machines. We’ll also use a simple pulley machine to send our Lego minifigures down a zip line!

    Lego Club is a supervised drop-off program which takes place one Sunday per month throughout the school year. Each month the Lego Club activities are guided by a different theme, and incorporate Lego building, games, and crafts. The program runs from 1:30 pm to 3:30 pm, and the cost is $10/child between the ages of 5 and 12.

    Register online here, or call 905-332-9888 to speak with Kate or Valerie G.

    Time 1:30 pm - 3:30 pm

    The DT Concert Series Presents: The East Pointers

    There’s a reason, beyond their dazzling musicianship and wildly entertaining live shows, that The East Pointers have connected with audiences right across the globe, making new, original but traditional folk music the hippest, most vibrant thing going.

    The reason? The East Pointers - fiddler/singer Tim Chaisson, banjoist Koady Chaisson and guitarist Jake Charron – write about real life, sketching out its joys and sorrows in vivid strokes. That palpable authenticity makes their instrumental tunes practically cartwheel and infuses their lyric-driven songs with poignancy.

    And it’s why listening to The East Pointers’ brilliant and hotly anticipated second album What We Leave Behind – produced by superstar East Coast-bred songwriter/producer Gordie Sampson – is akin to meeting up with an old friend.

    As a follow-up to 2015’s internationally acclaimed, JUNO Award-winning debut Secret Victory, What We Leave Behind shares stories previously unheard but framed by a familiar context. The album reflects on the traditions of Canadian Celtic music, where it comes from, and what it means to the people, but also strides in new directions. With a captivating balance between their traditional-sounding instrumental tunes, and catchy radio-ready songs, The East Pointers reach out with open arms to a wide range of listeners, inviting them to discover a new love of folk music.

    Tickets - $40 available at http://www.dtconcertseries.com

    Time 7:00 pm - 11:00 pm

    Location 97 Grand River Street North, Paris, N3L2M3
