Remember when winter was fun? Fifty or 60 years later... hibernation seems like a better idea! This week’s Amherst Winter Carnival makes winter fun again, and you don’t have to be a kid to find lots to do. Here are 10 “cabin fever” busting activities for seniors:
The Amherst Curling Club received a $500 Community Support Grant from the Town of Amherst on Feb. 9 to assist it in hosting the 2018 Nova Scotia Senior Curling Championships.
The event, which begins on Feb. 15 and runs to Feb 19, has attracted 13 teams, as eight men’s teams and five women’s teams are vying for the championships.
The Cumberland African Nova Scotian Association received a $500 Community Support Grant from the Town of Amherst on Feb. 9.
The grant was presented to the association’s executive director Elizabeth Cooke-Sumbu by Amherst Mayor David Kogon, who noted the grant will be used to support My Soul, a dinner and dance the association is holding in Amherst on Feb. 24 as part of the African Heritage Month celebrations.
Do you know an individual or team who has achieved a gold medal performance at a provincial or higher award/recognition, or any sport officials that have officiated at a provincial level or higher championship between April, 2017 and March, 2018? The Town of Amherst would like to recognize their achievements at a formal presentation ceremony hosted by Mayor and Council.
