The Kinsmen Club of Bible Hill is once again preparing for the annual pork chop dinner. Tickets are $10 and the meal includes a pork chop (obviously) and a baked potato, as well as coleslaw, a roll, and a slice of apple pie.
The dinner is pickup only at the Bible Hill Village Hall from 4 to 6 p.m. on May 4th. Our members have tickets available, or call 902-957-2754.
The 5th Annual Great Trivia Challenge was a huge success earlier this month, and today the Kinsmen Club of Bible Hill presented a cheque to this year’s major recipient: the Central Nova Women’s Resource Centre (CNWRC). These proceeds are targeted for the Girl Power Summer Camps.
On hand for the donation were (from left to right): Kinsmen members Allison MacDonald, Perry Kohler, and project Chair Mark Thibedeau, CNWRC Executive Director Tracey Dorrington-Skinner, Kinsmen Peter Taylor and Brent Pettis, and CNWRC Office Manager Michaela MacLachlan.
As anyone who attended the event can attest, the volunteers from the CNWRC were a huge part of the evening and ensured we were able to have our most successful trivia night to date. Thank you for all of your support.
The rest of this year’s proceeds will be distributed back into the community through various Kinsmen initiatives.
With 44 tables sold, this year’s Great Trivia Challenge at the Best Western Glengarry was the biggest in the event’s five-year history! We can do all the planning in the world, but the continued support of the community makes nights like last night such a smashing success. The Kinsmen Club of Bible Hill says it a lot, but that you so much to everyone who bought a table, donated a prize for the silent auction, volunteered to help, took a chance on the 50/50 and balloon pop, and everything in-between. We hope everyone had a lot of fun and we can’t wait to see you back again next year!
The Central Nova Women’s Resource Centre were this year’s major recipient from the Great Trivia Challenge, and thank you to them for the number of volunteers they brought to help out. Their proceeds are targeted for the Girl Power Summer Camps, with the rest being distributed back into the community through various Kinsmen initiatives.
So what about the top teams? Well, as announced at the end of the night, The Pen Is Mightier finished 3rd with 87 points. The HR Hellraisers followed up a 2nd place finish at least year’s event with another 2nd place outing at 88 points. But then the controversy started! The Insane Trivia Posse had 92 points, but unfortunately they were skipped over somehow in the final tally. So that bumps The Pen is Mightier to 4th and the HR Hellraisers to 3rd. Our apologies to the team that they didn’t get their announced moment in the sun, but they did get a team picture, which we’ve added to the gallery below. The trivia team spoke with them afterward and we’ll make it up to them.
That brings us to the winning team. With a whopping 97 questions answered correctly (they only got THREE wrong!?), it’s the Ice Hogs! They finally won the event after a 2nd place finish last year and 3rd place in 2016. Congratulations!
We had another fantastic night putting on the Great Trivia Challenge and hope you did as well. If you have any feedback on the evening, we’d love to hear from you. Email firstname.lastname@example.org. If you attended last night and wonder what it’s like to be a member of the Kinsmen Club of Bible Hill, contact a Kinsmen member you know or feel free to either attend one of our meetings or email us at email@example.com. We meet the first and third Thursdays of the month at the Douglas Street Recreation Centre.
The Kinsmen Club of Bible Hill rented the rink, pool, and climbing wall at the Rath Eastlink Community Centre on February 19th to mark the National Day of KINdness. It also coincided with Heritage Day in Nova Scotia.
Thank you to everyone who came out for the afternoon and we hope you had a great time!
