From the September 14th Facebook post by John Kaplan on the Edmonton Magic Club Public Page:

Today I've received this update on the upcoming service for Isreal Manchild  ...

Good day,

This message is being sent to you on behalf of Alexandria Brennais (IsReal’s Mother).  

Due to Corona virus numbers are limited for attendance at his celebration of life at Gateway Alliance Church. Alexandria knows how important friends were to Issey and because of this she has made arrangements with the church to have a live viewing of the service on Saturday, September 18, 2021 at 1:00pm (mst). She would love it if you could attend via the link: gatewayalliancechurch.com/live (link will not be live until Saturday at 1:00pm mst).

Please type that link into your address browser bar and it will bring you to the live event on Saturday.

Feel free to share this email with anyone you think would like to be a part of IsReal's service.

Ring 235 hosts a park meeting and first virtual meeting TBA


  • Meeting in the park Sunday, September 19th, 1 pm in Victoria Park.
  • First Digital meeting on Wednesday, September the 15th at 7 pm over Zoom.


From the September 7th Facebook post by Graeme Reed, interim president of IBM Ring 235:

ATTN Local Wizards: I have taken on the role as temporary President for the Kitchener Waterloo Magic Society - IBM Ring 235. If you are interested in learning magic monthly with some of Ontario's finest be sure to check out www.ibmring235.org

Ring 235 Members,
Over the past year, our magic family has lost two of its pillar members - Paul and Romaine. Both were ambassadors of magic and were always willing to share with all of our members. I know for a fact their kindness and willingness to share magic have had a tremendous impact on most of our members. We were lucky to be graced by two professional entertainers, and they will not be forgotten.

When I saw John's email about the need for a new president and that this will take some work to keep us all connected during unique times, I felt a strong passion for taking on a temporary leadership role. As a virtual event producer and co-host of the Magicians Talking Magic podcast, I have the skills we need to stay connected through the art of magic.

This year will look different when it comes to club meetings and gatherings. We will have to be more agile in our team's functionality, understanding that we might not meet in person each month. I want to introduce a second monthly meeting that will happen virtually over zoom.

September is upon us, and I invite everyone to a meeting in the park. Sunday, September 19th, 1 pm in Victoria Park. Please bring a chair and some magic to share, and I know John will be looking for the annual dues. This will be a little meeting to reconnect in person. I would also like to embrace our regular meeting date of the 3rd Wednesday of each month. I will send out an invite for our first Digital meeting on Wednesday, September the 15th at 7 pm over Zoom.

As acting president, I have three goals for our club this season:
-Embrace the history of Ring 235 by adding articles to our website.
-Have more opportunities to meet virtually and/or in person.
-Increase our membership - share magic! 
 Happy Day!
-Graemazing, L7W
