The Quarrelsome Yeti needs our help!


You’re probably familiar with giraffecycler Geordan Moore’s t-shirts, totes & prints. The Quarrelsome Yeti is a small screen-print, apparel and design business based in Halifax, Nova Scotia. Until recently, Geordan was able to share equipment and studio space with another Halifax artist. He’s found himself having to move on and needs our help to purchase a new press and some other equipment.

For your contribution, you will receive perks such as an official membership card to the Quarrelsome Yeti Conservatory as well as other goodies in accordance with the size of your donation. For this special event he has brought back two popular prints: Owl (my personal favourite) and The Fightin’ Yeti.

Local 107.3fm: “From Small Station to Community Developer in Ten Short Years”

In 2002, one year after its inception, Campus Radio Saint John Inc. (CFMH 92.5FM at the time), as host of that year’s National Campus & Community Radio Conference, won the Small Station Award at the NCRA/ANREC Community Radio Awards (then the Standard Radio Awards of Excellence). Ten short years later, at the 2012 NCRC in Kingston, O.N., CFMH-FM (Local 107.3FM) has been recognized with a CKLN Community Development Award.

Local 107.3FM would like to personally recognize the Community Radio Fund of Canada which funded the volunteerism-focused radio program (entitled “Vested Interest”) that, as feedback indicates, has had significant positive impact on our community-at-large. The program was created to provide volunteer groups and volunteer-driven organizations an opportunity to tell the city about what they do, why they do it, and what benefits the community sees from their efforts. The beneficiaries included the Conservation Council of New Brunswick, the Youth Inclusion program, the Saint John Learning Exchange, the Resource Centre for Youth, AIDS Saint John, READ SJ, the Saint John Multicultural and Newcomers Resource Centre, Sexual Assault Resource Team, Atlantic Coastal Action Plan, and more. These organizations reported very positive experiences including increased attention to their efforts, increased volunteerism, and more.
