Welcome to another edition of Crater Conversations, our new weekly show live on CKLU Sunday nights at 10PM! So, what exactly is the show all about? Join your host Crater co-founder Jess each week as we sit down with a local guest, we’ll talk about their projects, their passions, and the things they love about our little rock town! We’ll be sitting down with performers, entrepreneurs, community leaders – really anyone with a story. Personal anecdotes, first inspirations, childhood follies, who knows where this will take us but we can’t wait to find out!  Can’t catch the show on air? No worries, all our episodes will be posted on Soundclound afterwards for easy listening. If you’re inclined to tune in live you can dial in to CKLU 96.7 or stream live at every Sunday night.

In this weeks episode we’re kicking off the holiday season with a very special guest! Brenda Holla is a resident of Meadowbrook Village in Lively, and each year she makes it her mission to bring a smile to the faces of hundreds of seniors in the Sudbury area. Starting as early as July, Brenda lovingly addresses at least a thousand Christmas cards to seniors in need of cheering up! We were touched by her story and knew we had to talk to her about this wonderful project – she’s been at it since 1997! Listen in as we talk with Brenda about where she got the idea, how she pulls the whole thing off and some of her Christmas memories. Link here.
