Eagle Watch weekends a success
The Sheffield Mills Community Association is pleased to report that the recent Eagle Watch weekends were the most successful in more than a decade.
Association president, Richard Henniger, said, “We were really lucky with the weather and had four near perfect days. Also, we made better use of all media, including social media, in getting word out about the event.”
The success is also a credit to the many volunteers, without whose help the event could not be staged. Companies and organizations from far and wide participated or supported the event in various ways.
These include Elmridge Farm and Nova Agri in Sheffield Mills, Blomidon Estate Winery, Canning Village Meat Market, Crystany’s Brasserie Farmhouse B&B and Maple Leaf Home Hardware in Canning, Sea Level Brewing in Port Williams, Blomidon Naturalists Society, Box of Delights, Eos Natural Foods and We’re Outside in Wolfville, AVR, Deep Hollow Print, K-rock, Municipality of the County of Kings, NS Live and Valley Stove and Cycle from Kentville and Annapolis Valley First Nations from Cambridge. From further afield Bead Bough from Bedford, Sissiboo Coffee came from Bear River.
Thanks also go to Greatvalley Juices, Just Us Coffee, the Nova Scotia Egg Marketing Board, Ross Creek Centre for the Arts, Suprima Farms and the Warren family.
Those attending the pancake and sausage breakfast were treated to live music from Carl Boutillier, Elsie Morgan, Irish Celtic Band, Susan Ueffing, Andy Flynn and Sarah Webster. Andy Webster entertained at Eagle Fest.
Lastly, and most importantly, we would like to thank all those who attended. We hope you enjoyed yourselves and look forward to welcoming you again next year.
