It warms our hearts to hear of so many people that want to convene together and honor the man who has been an intricate part of our life’s portfolio, Neil Ellwood Peart.

“A Night for Neil” is now re-scheduled for Saturday, October 22, 2022 at the Meridian Centre in St. Catharines which happens to be a lovely time of year in Canada.
