Congratulations to Miss Kelcey Hiltz, Princess Canning 2106!
On behalf of the Canning Village Commission, businesses, and residents we
would like to congratulate Miss Kelcey Hiltz for being selected as 2nd Lady
in Waiting to Queen Annapolisa the 84th! The Canning float was also selected
as First Artistic Princess Float during the parade.
This is a wonderful accomplishment and testament of how Kelcey has shown to
be a graceful, confident leader and role model for the youth to follow, as
well as being a dedicated representative for the Village. Kelcey has made Canning
Village very proud and we look forward to seeing her and her child
attendant, Lyla Holt, at various events throughout the Annapolis Valley
throughout the year. Please support Kelcey as she visits events throughout

It was a freezing cold at 7:00pm at the welcome to Canning sign, but hearts were warm.

CABDA Treasurer, Crystal Maxner, and Co-Facilitator, Tim Maxner, formally thanked the Lions for their support help to spruce up the Village of Canning and welcome more business to our community.
