100 Bluenosers next meeting is
THURSDAY, Sept 10 at 6:30 pm
New Men and Women are invited for a sociable and learn about
helping our community
Our group started as 100 Men South Shore. We were inspired by the 100 Women & 100 Men's groups in Halifax. We meet every 3 months to help our neighbours in need by supporting a local charity. At our March 2016 meeting we supported new Canadians from war torn Syria become part of our community. At that meeting the Men decided that the community's problems were more they could handle on their own, and expanded the group to include women. Together we look forward to even greater success in helping make Bluenose country a better place. We have helped Bonny Lea Farm's purchase of a wheelchair van, and Hitchinbrook Farm's staging a summer camp for autistic persons.
At our meetings we learn about our community and the organizations that make it a great place to call home.
Tonight was one of the most impactful Bluenosers meetings we have ever attended! After hearing the first two presenters from the food bank and search and rescue, David Joudrie from the ARK got up and said he wasn’t going to present because he felt that either of those organizations needed the money more than the ARK for immediate needs. WOW!
We know we speak for everyone in the room when we say it makes one proud to be a “Bluenoser WHO CARES!” Congrats to Sherry Veniot at the Lunenburg County Search and Rescue and thank you David Joudrie and John Biddle for coming out to represent your organizations.
