Thunder Bay Country Market 2015 Season

Rock 94 is proud to support the Thunder Bay Country Market 2015 Season

The Thunder Bay Country Market is a year-round farmers’ market held Saturdays between 8am and 1pm and Wednesdays from 4-7pm during Harvest Season.

We Make it, Bake it, Grow it.

Over 100 vendors attend every Market day, year-round, with additional farmers attending during the summer months; we’re proud to be the largest producer-based market in Northwestern Ontario.  An average of 6,000 visitors shop for local meats, cheese, eggs, produce, baking, meals and crafts every week.

The Market is a sustainable engine of the Thunder Bay economy, with a real impact of close to $8 million on our community.

For our vendors, the Market represents an opportunity to earn a living doing something they’re great at and that they love.  For many of our customers it’s a place to buy groceries, crafts and gifts from the talented, hard-working people who created them.  For others it’s a meeting-place full of good people where they can get in touch with some of the simpler things in life.

At the Thunder Bay Country Market you’ll always know exactly what you’re buying.  Our producers know that happy, confident customers will tell their friends about the Market; they dedicate themselves to answering your questions.

Operation Red Nose

ROCK 94 is proud to sponsor the Annual Operation Red Nose in support of St. John Ambulance

In Thunder Bay, Operation Red Nose is hosted by St. John Ambulance.  With a mission to enable Canadians to improve their health, safety and quality of life by providing training and community service Operation Red Nose is the perfect complement to both achieve that goal and at the same time raise funds for other valuable health and safety programs.

How Operation Red Nose Works
You’ve gone to a house party or your office Christmas party or just out to the bar for a drink and it’s time to go home, but you do not feel comfortable driving. Call our Headquarters and a team of 3 will come and drive you home safely in your own car. Two people will get in your car with you and the third person will follow behind. Your car will be parked in your driveway and you will be escorted to your door. We’ll even drive your babysitter home (as long as one parent comes with us). This is a FREE* confidential service provided by hundreds of volunteers whose main concern is the safety of our roads. *Those receiving rides may make a voluntary donation to Operation Red Nose.

Operation Red Nose Volunteer Opportunities:
There are many volunteer opportunities available such as: Dispatch, Phone Operators, Headquarters, Mascot, Road Volunteers, and Committee Members. You can volunteer as an individual or with a group. Talk to your company or organization about volunteering, we'd be happy to make a presentation to your office or workplace to get participants to sign up! In order to volunteer for Operation Red Nose, you must first fill out a volunteer application form which can be found on the website:
Need a ride home?

If you need a ride home call Operation Red Nose! Dial 683-NOSE (6673) between 9:00pm and 3:00am on the service dates:
• November 27th, 28th
• December 3rd, 4th, 5th
• December 10th, 11th, 12th
• December 17th, 18th, 19th
• December 26th
This service is free, however donations are gratefully accepted.
Call when you are ready to go home. Rides will be provided in the order in which calls are received. A team of three Red Nose volunteers will pick you up and drive you in your own vehicle to the destination of your choice, for free.

Are you organizing a party?

If you’re having a party, there are a number of ways to let your guests know of this service. The most popular method is a visit from the Mascot – a big friendly Red- Nosed reindeer! Who has a very shiny nose! Rudy will visit area establishments and parties to spread Operation Red Nose’s brief but important message. "Make Operation Red Nose your last call before you hit the road." Plan ahead, call a friend, call a cab or call Operation Red Nose. Please don't drink and drive. Call Jennifer McKeown at  (807)345-1712 (ext 7) to advertise at your home or work party.
