Ignite ‘Skokie Talks’ fun evening with mixed bag of speakers Wednesday

GRAVENHURST — Ignite the night.

That’s the hot and cool topic Wednesday at the Gravenhurst Opera House, as a dozen or more speakers will each get five minutes for their “Skokie Talk.”

It’s the opening of the Gravenhurst Winter Carnival and a number of people have been invited for another in a series of Ted Talks to talk or boast about a wide array of subjects and show what they’ve got.

Grab your Skokie Button and join them downtown at 6:15 p.m. as Mayor Paul Kelly kicks off the five days and nights of fun.
