Happy Holidays from the Kinsmen Club of Bible Hill

 

Happy Holidays from the Kinsmen Club of Bible Hill!

We would like to thank you for supporting our annual Kinsmen Teddy Bear Toss with the Truro Jr. A Bearcats. During the November 30th game against the South Shore Lumberjacks, a record-breaking 341 teddy bears rained down on the ice after Bearcats winger Cole Julian scored 4:20 into the first period. All bears collected will be donated to children in Colchester County through the Christmas Index.

In addition to the Teddy Bear Toss, the Kinsmen Club of Bible Hill also supports several families through the Christmas Index by purchasing toys and other gifts for under the tree, and boxes of food for a delicious holiday feast. The annual Christmas Index shopping trip is something our members look forward to – we get just as excited to play with the toys as the children who receive them!

Do you have plans for New Year’s Eve? Consider spending it with Rock & Roll Hall of Famer Burton Cummings. Use promo code “KINSMEN” when you buy your tickets and $10 from each one sold will be donated to our club!

As 2019 comes to a close we have been reflecting on what an incredible year it has been for our club, and we owe it all to our community! We cannot thank you enough for supporting our community initiatives and fundraisers such as the Colchester Book Fair, the Kinsmen Kanteen at the NSPE, and The Great Trivia Challenge. The 2020 edition of The Great Trivia Challenge will be held on February 29th, and, due to the popularity of this event, we are anticipating yet another sell-out!

Bible Hill Kinsmen Power Play Program Presentations

The Bible Hill Kinsmen were on hand at the Truro Bearcats game against the Amherst Ramblers on March 9th to present the results of the 2018-19 Bible Hill Kinsmen Power Play Program.

This year, the Kinsmen are donating $4,300 to seven charities: CEC Scholarship Fund, Children’s Wish Foundation of Canada – N.S. Chapter, Colchester Food Bank, Colchester East Hants Hospice Society, Truro Boys and Girls Club, Multiple Sclerosis Society (Atlantic Division), and Cystic Fibrosis Canada – Scotia Chapter.

In the 17 years of the program, the Bible Hill Kinsmen, in partnership with the Truro Bearcats, has donated $79,800.

Great Trivia Challenge donation made to The Lotus Centre

The Bible Hill Kinsmen attended the 2019 International Women’s Day luncheon at the Best Western Glengarry today, where the club made its donation to The Lotus Centre from the proceeds of last weekend’s Great Trivia Challenge.

This is the second year the club has supported the Lotus Centre, with funds going towards the summer Girl Power camps.

Thank you to EVERYONE who supported our Great Trivia Challenge in some way. The rest of the funds will go into various Kinsmen initiatives in the local area.

The 6th Annual Great Trivia Challenge is in the books!

The 6th Annual Great Trivia Challenge is in the book and what a night it was! Thank you to everyone who took part last night, and to those who supported the event through other means like donations for the silent auction, balloon pop prize and so much more. The Best Western Glengarry was packed with trivia buffs from across the region, once again supporting the Lotus Centre and their Girl Power Camps. We’ll have an announcement on our donation in the near future.

Before we get to the winners, what would the evening be without a balloon pop?

At the end of the evening, there were a few prizes to dish out. The Einstein Award for the last place team went to Sobeys Robie #2, pictured with Trivia Night committee members Andrew St. Coeur (left) and Mark Thibedeau (right).

Third place went to Burchell MacDougall, with 74 points.

After ten rounds and 100 questions, did we have a winner? Well, it took a tiebreaker! Insane Trivia Posse and AutoChoice tied with 77 correct answers. In the end, AutoChoice picked up the win!
