BIBLE HILL - Rest assured, the annual exhibition will go on in Bible Hill this year, the interim Nova Scotia Provincial Exhibition commission chairman says.

"We are having an exhibition and it is going to be good," Bruce Kennedy said, in light of recent governance and finance issues at the site. "The 2014 exhibition is alive and well."

The search for a new permanent general manager is also underway with the job description available on

"The job description has been released for our general manager," Kennedy said. "We have big hopes and dreams for this place because of the potential that it has. And it's huge."

The ex is looking for a manager who has a masters megree (preferably in business or commerce) with several years work experience in a senior management position as a leader and manager of people.

But according to the job description, an equivalent combination of education and experience may also be acceptable.

Kennedy said a number of plans are in the works to find new ways of generating revenue at the site, including bringing in an ice machine, vending machines and potentially their own ATMs for such events as the upcoming Dutch Mason Blues Festival.

"If we buy an ice machine and make our own ice and sell it, if we create a campground atmosphere here and utilize the campground, the trailer, RV park, and if we turn that into a park, if we put in a dump station there for the RVs and things like that, we can make money at that," he said. "We just have to manage those things. They are all money generators and money generators are what we are striving for to help us."
