Lytton hosts picnic with screening

The Lytton Chamber of Commerce is holding a community barbecue to coincide with the public screening of Still Standing.

The Lytton Chamber of Commerce is sponsoring a community picnic so residents can have some fun before previewing the popular new CBC feature of Still Standing.

Lytton was one of a select number of Canadian towns visited by a CBC production crew for a week last year.

Hosted by comedian Jonny Harris (best known as Crabtree in Murdoch Mysteries), the show is a lighthearted look at small towns across the country. His stand-up comedy routines are very funny.

Lytton is one of the small Canadian towns that has “hung in there” despite being against the ropes many times since it’s heydays in the 1920’s.

“It isn’t often that Lytton gets 22 minutes of positive, prime time television that is shown across the country,” said Sheila Maguire, secretary of the Lytton & District Chamber. “In fact, I don’t think it’s ever happened before.”

“The chamber directors were so excited to hear the good news that we decided to sponsor a community picnic followed by a special screening of the show,” she said.

The picnic will be held on Tues., Aug. 18 at the Kumsheen Resort from 4-6 pm. All the amenities of the resort are open to the community. Hamburgers and hotdogs are grilled from 6-6:45 by chamber directors. Scotiabank is providing beverages and folks are asked to bring a potluck salad to the dinner.

The show will be presented at 7 pm on a (relatively) large screen at the resort. Everyone in Lytton is welcome to attend.
