You get all of this for $10! Call today before its sold out, as there are only 250 meals available. The contact number is 902-957-2754.

The dinner isn't the only event keeping the Bible Hill Kinsmen busy. They recently held a clothing drive to benefit the Colchester Community Workshops in Truro. There were two drop-off locations: one at Fundy Appliance in Bible Hill and the other at Shur-Gain on Willow Street in Truro. There were seven members involved in the collection. A big thank you to everyone who dropped off items and showed your support.

Coming up on May 24th is the Medavie Blue Cross MS Walk. This is an event to benefit Multiple Sclerosis and takes place in Bible Hill. Anyone looking to enter a team to walk the route, which is about five km, can contact Whitney Machin with the MS Society by email: whitney.machin@mssociety.ca. The walk starts at Bible Hill Central Elementary School with a check-in time of 1 p.m. and a start time of 2 p.m. The Bible Hill Kinsmen will proudly be there to help with registration, ensuring the route is properly marked, and however else they can help this important event. There are already more than 30 people registered, but the Kinsmen would love to see more.

The Kinsmen meet at 7:30 p.m. the first and third Thursday of the month at the Bible Hill village hall. Anyone who is interested in "serving the community's greatest need" is more than welcome to participate. You can contact the organization by email: president@biblehillkinsmen.ca.

We hope to see you at our events this month, and enjoy the spring now that it has finally sprung!
