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.
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.
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!

Our members were at Wal-Mart last night to do some shopping for the local Christmas Index Program. We’ve been lucky enough through your continued support to be able to expand the number of families we help each year.
As Christmas gets a little bit closer, we’ll deliver the gifts to the selected families, and ensure they have groceries as well. It’s a project our club looks forward to the most each year. Not only is it a perfect way to give back to the community around the holiday season, but it’s also a great night of fellowship.
The Bible Hill Kinsmen were on hand tonight for the 6th Annual Teddy Bear Toss, in partnership with the Truro Jr. A Bearcats. Truro scored early in the game against the Miramichi Timberwolves, and 319 stuffed animals were tossed on the ice! That’s a record and means nearly 1,500 have been collected at the event over the last six years. Once again, the stuffed animals will be distributed through the local Christmas Index Program. Thank you for taking part, and watch all of the fun below!
Hello everyone from the Bible Hill Kinsmen! We’re midway through November and our members are busy planning a number of events as 2019 is just on the horizon.
On Thursday, the club is hosting an open house and Buddy Night. It’s a chance for anyone who has an interest in joining the Kinsmen to get a closer look at what we do and meet members of the club. Our meetings are held the first and third Thursday of each month at 7:30 p.m. at the Douglas Street Recreation Centre. For this night, we’ll be on hand at 6 p.m. and if you’re interested in joining us send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Truro Festival of Lights is on Friday, from 7 p.m. to 8 p.m. at Civic Square. The Bible Hill Kinsmen will be on hand once again serving hot chocolate, courtesy of Sobeys, and handing out candy canes.
Tickets are now available for the Ultimate NHL Road Trip in support of Cystic Fibrosis Canada. This is an annual fundraiser, and the grand prize will send you and a guest to three NHL games in three nights: Pittsburgh at Montreal on March 15th, Dallas at Ottawa on March 16th, and Montreal at Toronto on March 17th. Tickets are just $10, are only sold in Atlantic Canada, and just 9,000 have been printed! Contact us on Facebook or by email at email@example.com.
As we look into next month, the annual Teddy Bear Toss will be held Sunday, December 2nd at 2 p.m. as the Truro Bearcats face the Miramichi Timberwolves at the Rath Eastlink Community Centre. Over the five years of this event, a partnership between our Kinsmen club and the Bearcats, more than 1,200 teddy bears have been donated. The Teddy Bear Toss is held in support of the Colchester Christmas Index Program. Come out and root for the Bearcats, but don’t forget to bring a few teddy bears in plastic bags to throw on the ice when the home team scores!
And the Kinsmen will be hosting their New Year’s Eve Dance at Bible Hill Junior High School. DJ Harv will be the entertainment, with a 9 p.m. start time. There’s also a cash bar, and attendees must be 19+. Tickets are $25 each and are available from any of our club’s members or by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org. They’re also available at MacQuarries Pharmasave on the Esplanade. Don’t wait to grab your tickets and we can’t wait to ring in 2019 with you!
