WATCH FOR 'KNITTING BOMBERS' AT THE HALL

Feeling the winter blues?    Fed up with the ice, cold and snow?   Then plan on getting out and celebrating winter with the Municipality of Cumberland’s winter carnival “Warm up to Winter” from February 14th – 18th, 2019.    As part of the fun everyone is being encouraged to build a snowman.   Be creative. be active and build a snowman on your lawn.

Can’t build a snowman?   Can’t dress your snowman?    Then you too can participate by donating old yarn and/or large knitting needles to the ‘knitting bomb’ groups who will be knitting scarves for the snowmen.   

If you have some yarn and /or large needles you could contribute, you can drop them off at select locations in town.   A bin will be placed at The Hall which will be emptied daily  (by the side door) or you can drop off at Ken’s Laundromat, The Co-op, and the Geological Museum.    Then watch for events at The Hall in which ‘knitting bombers’ show up to knit … during practices, in the middle of open mic, at choir practice, at the movies..who knows you may see someone sitting there madly knitting a scarf!

Be part of this fun event.   Drop off your old yarn and needles at The Hall and watch for bombed events at The Hall during the “Warm up to Winter” event in February.

FIRST OPEN MIC OF THE YEAR AT THE HALL

Cheryl finally looked up and smiled while belting out a great country classic

A great open mic night at The Hall with a terrific variety of music, a lot of laughter and smiles.    The roads were not the best so some people chose to not risk the icey conditions however those who made it enjoyed the entertainment thoroughly .
Matt and Shannon were back again adding to the instrument mix and some great folk songs

Thank you to all the entertainers who came to provide such a wonderful evening    We will be back on January 25th under hopefully better weather and driving conditions.   Mark your calendar now and we'll see you all there

Lisa braved the roads from Macaan to join us this evening (of course she was not driving)

TREMENDOUS RESULT FROM COOP SPONSORED 50/50 FOR THE HALL


During December The Parrsboro Band Association was the recipient of the monthly 50/50 at our local Co-op in Parrsboro.   Every month the Co-op sponsors a selected local group to help support and when you are cashing out,  you can just ask one of the wonderful staff to ring in a 50/50.  It is only $2 and it certainly helps groups to continue their operations    Your support is truly appreciated and does make a difference as this month we received over $1000. as a result of your generosity.

Many many thanks to the Co-op for making this opportunity available, not just to ourselves but to community groups in our community.
