#1789 drawn. Nictaux Falls winner gets a record high amount of $17,177. Pot resets to ~$3,200. next week. Play before noon Friday.



The Hardware Gallery in Kentville is exhibiting “Bird of Prey” multimedia video installation from December 5 to January 2, 2019 featuring the work of multimedia artist Ella Tetrault.

Bird of Prey is a multimedia video installation that tells a story of three people coming together on the North Mountain to explore how we interact, identify and relate to other species through Falconry. It is, in a way, a failed attempt to understand the complicated and often violent relationship the western world has with animals and to look at how we might understand and focus on healing trauma through our relations to other species.

Workshops for Those Involved In Volunteering

Did you know that close to one half of all Canadian contribute to their community by volunteering? Volunteers provide much needed human resources to voluntary organizations and the people they serve — they also bring new ideas, skills and energy to these organizations. Kings Volunteer Resource Centre provides a workshop series to help volunteers and voluntary organizations to become even more effective. These free workshops are now open for registration.

In the November 20th workshop, volunteers and representatives of voluntary organizations will learn more about NS Volunteer Protection Act. Volunteers in community organizations sometimes worry about their exposure to personal liability. Retired lawyer and active human resources consultant Michael Coyle will dispel some myths and misinformation and will explain Nova Scotia’s Volunteer Protection Act and its important role with specific reference to non-profit board governance. This workshop will be held from 6:30-8:00 at the KVRC office in the County Fair Mall (the former site of Carlton Cards).

In 2019 KVRC will offer workshops on The Nuts & Bolts of Event Planning, How to Start a Non Profit Organization in 5 Easy Steps and how to use volunteering to get work- Volunteering for Employment. The workshop series will end with the annual Volunteer Symposium, an all day program of presentations and workshops for volunteers and voluntary organizations to be held on May 16, 2019 at NSCC Kingstec.

Sign up for one or more workshops today as space is limited. Go to the Kings Volunteer Resource Centre (KVRC) website and register on Eventbrite or call Kerrie-Anne Wilkie the KVRC Coordinator. Karrie-Ann will answer any questions or assist with registration.
