Hope everyone had fun treasure hunting at the Community Yard Sale Day!

Saturdays weather looked a little iffy but Mother Nature was kind and the rain held off. This was our third year for this event and next year it should be even better

The goal is to make it a yearly August event that residents and organizations in our area look forward to taking part in and people from outside our area look forward to attending.

I spoke to a lady from Springhill, who has attended for the past three years and she loves it; she said she was surprised that one lady even remembered her from last year. I spoke to a couple from Amherst who couldnt attend last years but were here for the first one and they think its great.

So the word is out there and next years Community Yard Sale date has been set for August 15, 2009. You have a whole year to get things ready.

The Fundy Childrens Choir from the River Hebert / Joggins Area have a very busy and exciting week coming. The choir will be performing at the Lieutenant Governors Garden Party hosted by The Cumberland County Museum and Archives on Tuesday, Aug. 26.

This is a wonderful opportunity for not only our children but for the residents of Cumberland County to meet the Honourable Mayann E. Francis, Lieutenant Governor of Nova Scotia. The Garden Party will be held in the gardens of the Cumberland County Museum and Archives, 150 Church Street, Amherst from 3 p.m. to 5 p.m. Residents of Cumberland County are invited to attend.

The Fundy Childrens Choir special rehearsals will be held at the Joggins United Church, on Thursday, Aug. 21 at 6 p.m. sharp, and on Sunday, Aug. 24 for a full day rehearsal from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. bring a lunch, and bathing suit, and again on Monday, August 25, at 6 p.m. sharp! Call Bridget at 251-2410 for further details.

Happy Anniversary to Janie and Dyke OBrien from your family and friends!
