Remember when you were a kid? Summers lasted forever. Anything was possible. If you could dream it, you could be it. While we're paying tribute to those childhood dreams at our July show; and we've got some incredible speakers to prove that those special dreams we had are alive, well and still effective.
Come to The Carleton on July the 29th for some real inspiration. You'll wish every day was a momondays.

This month we're focussing on our inner child. We've all got one because we all were one. Our inner child is that piece inisde of us that still believes in the mystery of magic and the power of love. A kiss can ease all pain and some chocolate is what we need when we're sad.
That’s what this show is all about. FIrst up will be our own Tamara Freeman. You all know her as the smiling face at the door to momondays Halifax, or the keen eye that decorates and designs from tamarafreeman design (https://www.facebook.com/tamarafreemandesign/). But she's so much more than that. She's actually an accomplished musician and she'll be playing the first song she ever wrote as a child, along with a couple other pieces to set the tone for the start and to close off our night too.
Next up will be Nathan Sack. HIs official title is "Capacity Development Manager at First Nations Financial Management Board" (www.fnfmb.com), but we know him as the genius man. Nathan Sack is a Mi’kmaw cultural knowledge holder and facilitator with an
expertise in both public administration and business management in First Nations communities. Nathan earned his Masters of Business Administration from Athabasca University in December 2017.
After Nathan will be Barbara Deg. Barb had a dream to work with animals when she was little. She actually went to Ghana working with a group that provided vetrinary services to communities. Things didn't go well though. A tragic event caused her to come home a changed person. However, that little girl inside of her would not be denied. On her path she encountered an Irish Setter puppy. It was a sick little dog and the best medical advice was to let him go. One look told her she couldn't do that. They've been clinging to each other ever since. Her story of connection and affection will tell you how she went from pain to incredible growth and her new company, Front N'Scenter! (https://frontnscenter.com/)
After Barb will be Dan McNaughton. Dan's a retired RCMP member. He served over 35 years in that organization and was delighted to tell anyone within earshot of how he came home, a proud father and husband, to share Nova Scotia with his family. He continues to serve, vying for election in the provincial arena, or just driving people around for a local car dealership. His kind and caring spirit was forged early in life by his experiences as a young boy. Listen to how this Waverly boy grew into this iconic man.
Closing the night will be Quentrel Provo. He's a founder of Stop the Violence, (https://m.facebook.com/stoptheviolencespreadthelove/?ref=bookmarks&mt_nav=0) and has been organizing marches, speeches and school visits for years, all aimed at spreading love and raising support for victims and families impacted by violent crime. It’s a cause Provo began after his cousin Kaylin Diggs was assaulted and killed in August 2012, after leaving a bar in downtown Halifax. As a result of his tireless work, Quentrel was named one of the 100 Most Influential People of African Descent on the planet. He'll share the role the inner child had in guiding him to this prestigious recognition.
It’s going to be an incredible evening of magic, connection and, above all, love.
What a night. Come on out and socialize with all kinds of wonderful people in a fun, positive environment. Put in your own speaker application to speak at the next show… or grab some friends and get your fix of heart, humour and happiness.
Come down to The Carleton on July the 29th, 2019. You'll wish every day was a momondays.
Tim retired from the Royal Canadian Air Force in 2012 as an HR Officer with a speciality in Dispute Resolution and team-building. He has also experienced a broad spectrum of work environments, having served in operational squadrons across Canada and in United Nations missions overseas. In recognition of his achievements, in 2008 he was inducted into the Order of Military Merit by then Governor General, the Right Honourable Michaëlle Jean
After retirement from the RCAF he was invited to come and work with the Royal Canadian Mounted Police in Canada’s Atlantic Region where he replicated his successes from the military environment in the community of policing and public service. With almost five years’ experience in that arena he retired and now works as a contractor, delivering training and services in a broad spectrum of first responder and security sector environments.
However, no matter where he’s worked, the common experience he’s witnessed our universal love of stories. That’s what drew him to the momondays experience, especially in Halifax … a city renowned for its traditional love of tall tales and community yarns.
