Hanover Community Players Presents- Bye Bye Birdie

Hanover Community Players

If you’re looking for live, local, theatrical entertainment this weekend (May 30th, 31st, and June 1st), the Hanover Community Players (HCP) is putting on a production of Bye Bye Birdie! It promises to be a lively and fun-filled production for all ages.

In addition to being a non-profit volunteer group dedicated to bringing live performances to the community, the HCP have a great tradition of donating $1 from each ticket sold to local youth-oriented groups and have chosen the South Grey Bruce Youth Literacy Council as the beneficiary of this production. How great is that! You can enjoy an evening of great entertainment and support two local causes!

You can find more information about the production (including the cast) at the HCP website Bye Bye Birdie, and be sure to see the Ticket Information and Showtimes.

DONATE A CAR for Literacy!

We’re happy to announce a new way to show your support for the South Grey Bruce Youth Literacy Council!

We’ve registered with Donate A Car Canada, an organization that makes it easy to turn your car, RV, or other vehicle into a charitable donation. Donate A Car Canada will arrange the pick up of your old beater where available or guide you to one of their drop-off locations. It will then be recycled and sold for scrap, or if deemed road-worthy, it will be sent to auction. The Literacy Council collects the proceeds, and you receive a tax receipt for your generosity.

Find out more about the process by reading the Donate A Car Canada FAQ. If you’re ready to donate your vehicle to the South Grey Bruce Literacy Council, you can get started now!

If you don’t have an old vehicle but still would like to help out, we have other ways you can donate or you can consider volunteering.
