Kinsmen Report: May

Hello everyone, from the Bible Hill Kinsmen!

We recently held our annual pork chop dinner at the Bible Hill Village Hall. Not only is it a big fundraiser for us, but the food was delicious! The pork chops themselves were from Ebbett’s Meadow Brook Farm Market in Tatamagouche.

A highlight for the club, at any time of year, is watching our members be recognized for their hard work. Brad McCallum and Dave Gillis, both part of this year’s executive, have received the Maple Leaf Award of Distinction from Kin Canada. To earn this award, a member has to complete a number of tasks within their first two years with the group. That can range from chairing a project, to being elected to the executive for a year, to attending district and national conventions.

We’ve been focusing our efforts on the 1st Annual Colchester Book Fair from 6 to 9 p.m. on June 3rd and from 9 a.m. until 4 p.m. on June 4th . The Kinsmen are partnering with NovelTea Bookstore Café to continue a decade’s long community tradition, which was previously run by the Canadian Federation of University Women. It has relocated to the Eagles Landing Building at 510 Prince Street (the former MacQuarries Pharmasave location). Proceeds from the event will support the Colchester East Hants Library Foundation and other Kinsmen community projects.

Drop-off locations are Enterprise Rent-A-Car, NovelTea Bookstore Café, Shur Gain Feeds n Needs, and Sobeys on Robie Street in Truro, as well as Century Hyundai and Fundy Appliance in Bible Hill.

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