All kinds of unique
Church and antique cars.
That sums up my May 27. After church I stopped in at Rainforth Park to see the antique cars. Several of the realold time cars were parked in front of The Driftwood Restaurant.
Then I was off to the Chicken Barbecue in Woodville. This has been taking place for 40 some years and it was the first time I actually attended. The line seemed quite long and I thought it would take an hour to get the food, but it only took about 20 minutes. After that it was off to the Scotian Gold Family Fun Day. I, of course, was interested in hearing the band, Witchitaw. There was plenty for the children to do and I would say they were having a great time. Thanks to Scotian Gold who do this every year.

Adam Matthew Popowich
- Our hearts are breaking as we very sadly announce the sudden death, due to complications of pneumonia, of Adam Matthew Popowich (42), Cambridge NS on the morning of May 26, 2018. Born in New Glasgow on September
19, 1975, Adam attended New Glasgow schools, graduating from Dalhousie University, and Algonquin College in Ottawa, Ontario. While in Ontario his diagnosis of Becker Muscular Dystrophy was confirmed. Adam met the love of his life, Christine Bigelow, in 2001 and they moved to Cambridge in the Annapolis Valley, where he worked for the past 15 years as a school librarian with the Annapolis Valley Regional School Board. They married in 2003 and their daughter Veronica Julia (9) was very much like her daddy and loved lego, Pictou County Pizza, silly games and laughing. Adam was quiet, caring, and funny, with a quirky sense of humour and the most beautiful smile anywhere. He made the best of his physical limitations and was a loving husband, daddy, son, brother, uncle, nephew, grandson, son in law, brother in law and friend. Besides Christine and Veronica, Adam leaves his parents, Fred and Coreen (O’brien) Popowich New Glasgow; his big brother, Simon (Michelle) Popowich Fredericton NB; grandmother, Margaret Popowich Brantford ON; his parents-in-law, John and Cheryll Bigelow, Kingsport NS; sisters-in-law, Dawn (John) Isnor, Gaspereau NS; Cherisse Bigelow (Richard Yurdiga), Grassland AB; nephews Evan and Ryan Isnor and Jacob Yurdiga. Also grieving are aunt, Kathy (Michael) Amping, Pointe Claire PQ; uncles, Leo (Rosemary) O’brien, Brampton ON; Kevin (Jackie) O’brien, Pointe Claire PQ; Peter (Diane) Popowich, Guelph ON; Jim (Deborah) Popowich, Jerseyville ON; cousins, Matthew (Susan) Popowich, David Popowich and Griffin Popowich of Ontario and grandmother-in-law, Jean Corbett, Wolfville NS, and many friends and colleagues. Adam was predeceased by his much loved grandparents, Arthur Popowich, Gertrude and Dennis O’brien. Adam lived life fully, loving his family and having the courage to live well in spite of his physical problems. His example was a gift to all of us and his memory will inspire everyone who knew him for a long while to come. Visitation will take place on June 8, 2018 from
