CABDA Canning Village Movie in the Park 07-2018

 

Hey Market Vendors and Business Owners — Exciting News!

Canning is hosting an evening outdoor Market on July 20th from 7pm-9pm and we would like to invite you to come and share your business at the market.  And the great news is the Market will be advertised on K-Rock radio for the entire week leading up to the event so there will be a lot of advertising for this Market.

Date:  July 20th
Location: Bruce Spicer Park (outdoors) in Canning
Time:  7  – 9 PM

Cost:  $25 for one table or $45 for two tables (tables are 6′ in length)
(Free for not-for-profits)

Included in the cost is a table and radio advertising, however, you are responsible to bring a chair.   All proceeds raised will be going to CABDA Canning Area and Business Development Association, a non-profit organization in the Village of Canning.

After the market, Canning & District Recreation will be hosting a movie night under the stars at the same location.  Everyone is invited to bring their lawn chairs and enjoy an outdoor movie that will start at dusk (shortly after 9 pm).  This will also attract people to the event.

For payments, you have a couple of options: e-transfers or cheque. A confirmation email will be sent to you automatically once you reserve your spot.

Don’t miss out, reserve your spot today by following this link:

Book, Plant, and Bake Sale on May 19, 2018

Canning Village's Merritt Gibson Memorial Library sale items
The Merritt Gibson Memorial Library is holding a number of fundraising events prior to our popular May long weekend Book, Plant, and Bake Sale on May 19th, 2018.  The library is in  planning stages of building upgrades including insulation and window installation.

Our Vesey’s campaign is currently offering a wide range of products including seeds, seed mats, annuals, perennials, bulbs, and live plant/bare roots.  The 5 foot long by 17 inch seed mats are an easy quick way to fill in that awkward area in your yard with vigorous colourful growth, and are an excellent value, as they can be split up to cover many small areas.  A Vesey’s catalogue is available at the library to help you select and some library members also have them and are collecting orders which all must be prepaid to the library.  A few of our library members also are taking orders.  Contact the library if you’d like to order with us this way.

The library is also holding a number of silent auctions as part of our fundraising efforts.Currently bidding has begun on an attractive and functional set of items donated by Jordan’s Home Furnishings, including a crushed glass nightlight, an unbreakable solar camping light, a ceramic mini-lamp with silk shade, and various kitchen serving and prep ware, as well as a hardcover book for holding recipes.  This auction closes on the 24th March.

The new lot being offered for bidding will start on the 25th March, and includes a beautiful handmade large bowl created especially for this event by Aspinall Pottery,  a collection of Arbonne cosmetics from The Landing Day Spa and Studio, art supplies from ArtCan and others, a bag and food vouchers from Wolfville Farmer’s Market, and a basket of culinary items from Farmer John’s.

The items can be seen at the library, on our library and heritage billboard beside the library, and on our Merritt Gibson/Canning Library Facebook page.   Bidding can be done in person at the library, or by using messenger on our Merritt Gibson Memorial Library Facebook page, by emailing to canninglibrary@gmail.com, or by phone at 902-582-7699, or call 902-582-1958 where you can leave a message.

We also have a number of speakers for April and May including award winning lily cultivation expert Wayne Ward and Carol Goodwin of Beneath the Boughs Nursery who specializes in woodland and unusual species to present growing ideas.  Dates of speakers will soon be announced.
