FATHER'S DAY SPECIAL
Terry Fator — Ventriloquist, Celebrity Impressionist, Las Vegas Entertainer, Winner of America’s Got TalentTerry Fator became a household name in 2007 when he won Season 2 of “America’s Got Talent” with his unique brand of entertainment that combines singing, comedy, and unparalleled celebrity impressions. After 25 years of honing his skills at county fairs and venues across the country, the Dallas-bred entertainer’s big “AGT” win at age 42 catapulted him into the upper echelon of entertainers, landing him at No. 3 on Forbes’ list of the top-earning comics behind Jerry Seinfeld and Kevin Hart in 2015. The feat is due largely to his multi-million dollar deal with the Mirage Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas where his award-winning show, “Terry Fator: The VOICE of Entertainment,” has been running since 2009. With a cast of characters including Winston, the Impersonating Turtle; Emma Taylor, the little girl with the big voice; Maynard Thompkins, the Elvis Impersonator; Duggie Scott Walker, the annoying neighbour and many others, Fator has been raking in awards, accolades, and industry admiration ever since. Within the last year, Fator has released a DVD “Terry Fator: Live In Concert,” a country music CD “It Starts Tonight,” as well as a series of children’s books including Lamu, The Christmas Kitten.
*Terry Fator will be performing Friday June 23 @ 9:00 at Casino Rama. www.casinorama.com

Roger Thompson — Author of We Stood Upon Stars: Finding God in The Lost PlacesWe are made for freedom and adventure, friendship and romance. Yet too much of life is spent unfulfilled at work, restless at home, and bored. All the while knowing there is something more. You’ll find some of life’s best moments waiting for you over a campfire, on a river—even in that coffee shop or brewery you didn’t know you’d discover along the way. It’s time to begin the search. In the literary spirit of well-worn tales about America’s open road, this poetic, honest, often hilarious collection of essays shows how to embark on adventures that kindle spiritual reflection, personal growth, and deeper family connections. From surfing California’s coastlines, stargazing southwestern deserts, and fly-fishing in remote mountains of Montana, you’ll be inspired to follow Roger’s footsteps and use the hand-drawn maps from each chapter to plan your own trips. There you will hear God’s voice – and it may help you find what you’re searching for. “We search mountaintops and valleys, deserts and oceans, hoping sunrises and long views through the canyons will help us discover who we are, or who we still want to be. The language of our hearts reflects that of creation because in both are fingerprints of God.”
~ Roger W. Thompson

Ashley David Chapman — Vice President of Chapman’s Ice CreamBack in 1973, David and Penny Chapman bought a small creamery in Markdale Ontario. The Chapman family began with four employees and two trucks, and moved into the cramped and primitive rooms above an old creamery in town. In 2001, Chapman's opened a distribution center in New Brunswick to better serve its customers in Atlantic Canada. Although Chapman's Ice Cream has grown substantially, it is still firmly rooted in the community and deeply loyal to its employees. The distribution centre in Ontario covers about 140,000 square feet and can house over 6 million units of product, which gets delivered right across Canada on over 50 trucks. At 10 am on September 4th 2009, someone noticed smoke coming out of one of the buildings. By mid-afternoon, the fire was almost under control when the Municipality of Grey Highlands under-sized water tower ran dry. At 5 pm the Chapman family withdrew to their family home outside of Markdale, after witnessing 36 years of hard work go up in smoke. But within an hour of getting home, the family made the quick decision to rebuild their business. Worried about the local economy, and their 350 employees who make up the extended Chapman family, the Chapman's refused to go down without a fight! Shortly after this, the entire management team gathered around David and Penny's dining room table and started planning the rebuild. Within 7 weeks from the fire, Chapman’s produced their first 2 Litre brick of ice cream! In the ensuing months, the community and Chapman's worked tirelessly to build their new manufacturing facility, appropriately named Phoenix. Within a year and a half from the fire, they had rebuilt bigger and better than ever! Today, Chapman's is Canada's largest independent ice cream company.
Meanwhile, Back On The Farm...
With Drew's Dad Grant MarshallWe're losing a generation. A generation of respect, integrity and honour. A generation who were not afraid of hard work and sacrifice. Drew's father IS that generation. Growing up on the farm taught Grant Marshall more about life than Google. So maybe we should take the time to listen – before that generation is gone.
(Mr. Marshall Sr. joins us for a special Father's Day Edition, remembering his own Father back on the farm.)

This Week on The Pub Crawl:
Madolyn Smith Osborne - Former Hollywood actress, you’ve seen her in Urban Cowboy with John Travolta, All of Me with Steve Martin, Funny Farm with Chevy Chase and The Super with Joe Pesci!
1/ Who would you like to see be awarded Canada's highest honour?
The Order Of Canada has been awarded 6000 times since it’s inception back in 1967, with one of the most controversial recipients being abortion Dr. Henry Morgentaler. Disgraced runner, Ben Johnson, still has his. Media mogul Conrad Black and hockey icon Alan Eagleson, both had theirs taken away.
2/ As our country celebrates Canada’s 150th birthday… does it actually matter to you?
Will this July 1st just be another summer holiday for you or will it actually mean more? Why aren’t Canadians as wound up about their patriotism as the Americans?
3/ Another Wallenda stunt over the Niagara Falls - cool or lame?br> This week, the wife of Nik Wallenda (daredevil acrobat/tightrope walker who walked over Niagara Falls a few years ago) hung by her teeth below a helicopter. Do these sorts of things make you curious, or bored? Which one would you actually watch: Evel Knievel crashing into the side of the Grand Canyon after failing to fly over it in a rocket? Houdini escaping from a straight jacket while hanging far above the city sidewalk? Mrs. Wallenda hanging by her teeth? Donald Trump hanging by his small hands from the balcony of The Kremlin?
4/ When was the last time you cried, men? (And “after a lousy round of golf” doesn’t count!) Apparently, the “new man” is sensitive and men crying is now more acceptable than ever. Is this a good thing? Or has society been chickified too much?
