This calendar is reserved for non-commercial community events. What does that mean? Your event must be free or of nominal cost, available to anyone (although adult-only events are fine), and not for profit (but we do make exception for artists showing their work who would profit from any sales made and musicians hosting small-scale concerts). Not sure if your event fits? Drop us a line at firstname.lastname@example.org to check, or go ahead and submit anyhow – submissions are moderated and we’ll approve yours if it fits our criteria. Thanks for helping make Huntsville a vibrant community!

A letter from J’aime:
I was born and raised in Huntsville, and if you don’t know me personally, it’s likely you’d recognize one of my many family members; having five aunts on the Ouderkirk side, and 16 great aunts and uncles on the Payne side, Huntsville has always been home. I returned to Huntsville from Toronto last year to launch a new national art company designed to help support my fellow creative artists across Canada. We’ve been operating out of Huntsville for just over a year now, and through generous partnerships with Soapstones Natural Skincare, MBRP Inc, Brendish Computers, Huntsville Festival of the Arts & more, we’ve been able to make some fantastic impact, both locally and nationally.
In 2015, under the mentorship of my grandpa, Lyle Payne, we threw a Fundraiser called “You Are Not Alone”. Together we brought together many local businesses and raised $7,500 which was donated to the chemo unit and used to purchase 10 tablets. At the end of Lyle’s battle with cancer, our family was able to celebrate and honour the man we loved under the Hospice Huntsville roof. In August 2019, our family was blessed yet again with the generosity of Hospice Huntsville as we said goodbye to Don Ouderkirk, my mother’s father, an amazing man of 91 years young. Both of my grandfathers were amazing, generous and kind men with creative spirits. Lyle was ahead of his time, carving candle holders out of rocks he gathered along the shore of Snow Lake. Don was a skilled woodworker and guitar player whose talents have been passed on from generation to generation.
50% of net proceeds of this event will be donated directly to Hospice Huntsville. The other 50% will be donated to The Snow Lake Initiative to help assist with the development of a new program. This program will encourage our members to put on fundraisers in their local communities and utilize their talents to create positive impact.
