Joe Thornton Weekend in St. Thomas!

Joe Thornton Weekend in St. Thomas!

Joe Thornton is returning to his hometown of St. Thomas for two very special events.

On Friday, June 22nd, Thornton will be helping to host ‘The Big Assist’, an intimate evening inside the historic Elgin County Railway Museum to raise funds to support the St. Thomas Elgin General Hospital and the STEAM Centre. Donors who contribute $2500 (or more!) to boost the two charitable organizations will enjoy a relaxed night of local food and drinks set in and around the impressive collection of locomotives and railway artifacts in the Museum event space.

Maddie and Andrew Review Local Restaurants! Thanks to Gunn and Associates for sponsoring our show. We really love Unique Food Attitudes in London! Special thanks to Barbara Czyz for the terrific food + for making us feel at home ... the krokiety and red borsch is definitely a good choice, or the pierogi with fried onion and sour cream ... and goodness! Get the paczki for dessert for sure! Perfect way to finish.
