SSU Arts Night / Open House

Friday, March 24, 7 – 9 pm, Park Hall

Join us for an evening to celebrate fine arts from our local and wider communities!

Artists will contribute work that reflects on the concept of HOME. Not limited to any one aspect, each artist is invited to engage with this theme and reflect on what it means to them.

It will be a wonderful night of art, music, and conversation – a great way to get to know the people who call this area HOME.

Entrance by donation with proceeds going to the Fundy Region Transition House.

The St Croix Theatre Company will be presenting four short comedies (15mins each) on April 8th at the Curling Club. This will be a dessert theatre format, so delicious desserts, tea/coffee are  included in the ticket price. Door and bar opens at 6pm and show starts at 7pm.
WARNING: there is some strong language in the comedies but appropriate to the context.
Tickets are a very reasonable $15 per person, Brian Brooks has some for sale (also available at Stuart’s) limited advance tickets only- great night out!

The Gathering

The Gathering is a ministry of SCV. Every month on the 3rd Saturday, a group meets to prepare and celebrate a meal together. During this time, a store is run upstairs and the proceeds go towards the Way family in Zimbabwe.
The Gathering is centered around 4 values: friends, faith, food and fun.To learn more about what’s happening and how you can be involved please talk to Geordie or Kathy Hull or email or contact Peter or Mary Ellen Fitch  (466-5725). Also you can check us out on Facebook under “The Gathering”!

Helpers are always welcome and needed! You can help with set up/ clean up, cooking, or just hang out and have conversation and enjoy people.

Thanks to all who donate gently used clothing and household items to the Gathering Store.  If you, or someone you know has a need for these items, please contact us and we’ll try to hook you up.
