Eagle Watch week­ends a suc­cess

Annapolis Valley Register - - OP-ED -

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.
