Gershon Wachtel & his piano- in performance Reply

Review by Tina Gaisin
I was not planning on attending another concert but something told me I should go! I dragged my special someone and off we went!  The concert was held at Chabad Romano located on Bathurst St. in Maple. Instead of a lectern on the Bimah (elevated altar area) was a beautiful piano!  Acting as Master of Ceremonies, and guest soloist/ speaker was pianist Gershon Wachtel.  
               Wachtel has a lengthy bio which includes the accompaniment of the 1976 and 1980 USA women’s Gymnastic Teams. More…

Dryden & Sweet; a “Youth reclaiming” dream team Reply

Review by Danny Gaisin
         Yesterday I met a Hamilton man whose personal history of being abused as a pre-teen and then suffering a long period of being homeless reads like a Dickens’ novel. Today he’s an honours college graduate. Realizing he had the background to perhaps influence others, Fredrick Dryden started visiting youths being held in Juvenile Detention. Eight years ago he formed LIBERTY FOR YOUTHand quickly received support and encouragement from David Sweet, our local Member of Parliament who is a motorcycle riding enthusiast.
