Ramble On – Cheesecake?

This week's Ramble On column takes a look at the upcoming Cheesecake Burlesque Revue show and a young girl's fascination with dress-up.

Women in the Valley have a rare opportunity this weekend when the Cheesecake Burlesque Revue comes to town to put on a workshop hosted by the Columbia Valley Arts Council.

We all need to have some ‘just plain fun’ in our lives and this seems to be a very easy way to fill that need.

Seems like we never outgrow the desire to play dress-up.

Beginning as very little girls trying on our mother’s garments, through the teen years experimenting with make-up – that seems to have started at a much younger age but that’s a whole other topic – into the over-50 crowd and the very popular Red Hat Society, we spend part of our lives imagining we’re something we’re not.

No harm, isn’t that how we grow?

Somewhere there is an adage about dreaming and believing being the path to success. I’m not going any further with this, I think I need a degree in something to follow the direction my brain is starting to take me.

For those not taking part in the workshop, pick up tickets for the burlesque show at Bud’s Bar & Lounge on Sunday evening.

The whole event is a major fundraiser for the local arts council.

I want to thank all the organizations that applied to be the recipient of the proceeds of The Valley Echo’s Giving Back Golf Tournament.

There are so many deserving groups and it’s going to be a tough decision to make. I wish we could give it to every one of you.

Look for details for this June event coming very soon.

The Canadian Cancer Society’s daffodil campaign is in full swing, be sure to pick up your bouquets next week.

That is a sure harbinger of spring.

Hopefully we’ll be able to swing our golf clubs next week too – then we would know spring was here for sure!
