Kinsmen Report: January

Hello once again from the Bible Hill Kinsmen!

The club is busy getting everything ready for the 3rd Annual Great Trivia Challenge. The event, one of our major fundraisers of the year, takes place February 27th at 7:30 p.m. at the Best Western Glengarry. Proceeds of this event will go towards the Colchester East Hants Health Centre Foundation’s “We Care About Cancer Fund” and other community projects.

We anticipate having 40 teams competing against each other and testing their knowledge in sports, music, entertainment, history, and more! There will be lots of food, music, a cash bar, and a silent auction that will take place throughout the night.

Quite a few teams from last year have re-entered, but there is still room for more. If you’d like to submit a team of eight people for the event, at a cost of $300 per team, email us at

On a more somber note, Kinsmen past and present mourned the loss of Terry Hunt last month. A Past-President of the Bible Hill Kinsmen themselves, Terry was a giant in the community both literally and figuratively. He was well-respected in the community and through Kin for his tireless dedication to volunteerism and promoting the area and region. As a member of the Kinsmen, Terry was also a part of a number of executive committees, and took part in zone and business meetings. He was always willing to help the club however he could, and our community has lost a great ambassador. His passing was especially felt in the club as our current President, Drew Douglas, is his nephew.

The Bible Hill Kinsmen hold meetings on the first and third Thursday of the month, from September to June, at 7:30 p.m. at the Douglas Street Recreation Centre. We’d love to see you there. If you’re interested in joining us for a meeting, or would like more information, email
