A Field Guide to Rural Living September 10th at Norwich United Church

Cities and suburbs are spilling into the Ontario countryside, and a mild disorder is once again making the rounds…rural culture shock. Luckily, it’s easily treated, and as usual, an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.


To this end Dan Needles and Ian Bell have spared no effort to develop a useful prescription for recent arrivals - and for those who welcome them here - A FIELD GUIDE TO RURAL LIVING - It’s a proven panacea – and it’s very funny.


Tickets are $30 available here:
