To gain audience interest before starting the series we made two promotional videos and we really hope you enjoy them. We certainly enjoyed making them. Let’s grow together in this playful adventure.

Marching our banner down Broad street for the Mudcat Festival
DCT enjoys the community in which we live and because of that we work to be part of it. We strive to be a valued part of our beautiful town’s commonwealth, work to be involved with other organizations and recognize the importance of contributing to community events.
In 2022 we made a humble effort at being part of the always fun Mudcat Parade by marching our banner and pulling a wagon full of candy, water, and business cards.
In 2023 we made a grand effort to launch a float full of famous rock icons and we thought it went quite well. However we do it, DCT is very proud to be part of this beautiful town and its marvellous celebrations.
Every year since COVID left us all home alone, DCT has produced a Christmas video. Please enjoy them even if it’s not the right time of year or a holiday you celebrate.
In the first year of Covid-19 restrictions we could not launch a production and started discussing the possibilities of doing Videoblogs. We put our corporation’s house in order and submitted an OTF grant under the Resilient Communities Fund. Then we sat back to wait. We’re not very good at waiting so we decided to give 1 small video a try just to say “Happy Holidays”. We missed our fans and families and just wanted to convey something happy and hopeful to the community. We were pretty happy with this video and in many ways it spurred us on with its whisperings of “Videoblog, Videoblog, wherefore art thou Videoblog?”
Nurses week arrived after we had news from the Ontario Trillium Fund that we had been awarded a grant but at that point it was still hush hush. We could not move forward with any plans until we got the go ahead. We have a great nurse on our board – Kathryn Stengel– and a another great nurse –Loretta Ward – who volunteers to photograph us, so we definitely appreciate nurses and wanted to add our shout out. Jordan dug his equipment out and made another short video from DCT.
