As a resident of Nova Scotia for 20 years there are plenty of things here that I find charming. Many remind me of my Newfoundland home. Yes, you can have a great meal or a delicious plate of fudge but there is real value for me to be part of something wonderful. Directly or indirectly these organizations and volunteers do valuable work for friends and strangers – often when people find themselves most vulnerable.
Two in particular:
If you are looking for a delicious lobster supper, a pancake breakfast or a roast beef dinner – many organizations province-wide produce the best home cooked, fairly priced meals. They use the proceeds for many things – a new roof, repave a parking lot, services to the larger community. I can’t think of a better reason to support them.
I love a good bottle of jam, a lemon loaf or a pair of knit socks. One of the best places to get any of these items is a craft or bake sale in a church hall, community centre or similar. You can ALWAYS find one happening – but especially at Christmas.
But hey – Nova Scotia’s awesome doesn’t end here. There are piles of farmers markets, festivals, conferences, formal and informal get-togethers as well. Totally worth a visit!
All of these community events influenced me to create these calendars. If you see something missing, please E-mail me.
But hey – if all this clicking makes you tired – just click here for everything in one spot!
PS. If anyone asks where you found out about their event, please point them to www.nscommunityevents.ca
