CRAFTERS AND BAKERS SALE A HUGE SUCCESS



Today was the day to be at The Hall when the area's crafters and bakers assembled to present their works, talents and gifts all in one location.

In affiliation with the Band Association the sale included a variety of local natural handmade crafts, baked goods and art.


The day was well attended by the public and many spoke of how such an event should be repeated occasionally in order to promote local artisans.   

Tickets were sold on a gift basket the contents of which were donated by each of the participating vendors.   The draw for this basket was won by Kierstan Boyce of Dartmouth

FUN NIGHT AT THE HALL
(Carl Cameron started the evening off with some rainy day music)

Friday night had The Hall filled with the sounds of music and laughter once again as the Open Mic rolled out with a tremendous variety of music.  For two and a half hours the crowd was singing along, tapping their toes and clapping their hands as many old familiar favourite tunes rang in the rafters.

(Marg performed some soul searching songs which touched everyone present)

Open Mics at The Hall have become a regular feature of the winter entertainment in the county and the Band Association wishes to thank all of the entertainers who give so generously of their time and talent to support this ongoing fundraiser for The Hall, which assist in the completion of so many projects in the ongoing restoration of this iconic structure and helping make it a growing entertainment and community meeting center.

(Sandy and Garnet almost gave the audience the most moving moment of the evening)

The next Open Mic will be held on February 22nd.   We hope to see you all there.

FULL HOUSE FOR OPEN MIC AT THE HALL

(Up Shore, Down Shore and Knot Sure got the night off to a great start)

The weather cooperated, the ice (mostly) dissipated and Open Mic rocked The Hall with a great turnout and over two dozen entertainers.  For over three hours the audience cheered, laughed, applauded and sang along to a great range of music from country to rock, blues to folk.

(Our newest, youngest and by far the cutest entertainer of the night won the hearts of everyone present)

Open Mic at The Hall has become a favourite source of entertainment and has helped to support the continued restoration of The Hall.  Many, many thanks go out to all our supporters and especially to the entertainers who give so generously of their time and talent.
(Rob closed the night with a couple of terrific tunes on the guitar)
See you all next time on February 8th
