When we talk about having a chair of a meeting, we don't usually mean, well, a piece of furniture. But the chair in our first photo is no longer a piece of furniture anyway: it's art! Lynn, the artist, is busy working toward the launch of The Slippery Fish Folk Art Emporium, her new business, and she brought the chair as a show-and-tell at a special reunion meeting at the CEC on Friday.

Lynn is one of 10 over-50 entrepreneurs who graduated in November from the pilot program of Above the Median, a collaborative offering from CEED, the CEC, the Nova Scotia Department of Seniors, and Boomers Plus. The program was designed to help over-50 entrepreneurs maximize their opportunities for business success.

The classmates gathered Friday to update each other on everyone's business progress (good news all around!) and to talk about the benefits of the course and the post-course mentorship program. Program facilitator Paul McGinn joined the group to hear everyone's comments and news, and to offer words of encouragement.

Watch this page for more updates from the group!

We're delighted to be hosting art by Paula Fredericks in our rotating art gallery this month. Please stop by the CEC to enjoy Paula's vibrant work, which is exactly what we need to get us through these blustery February days!

When we think about having our Community Enterprise Centre at the crossroads of St. Margaret's Bay and Peggy's Cove roads, we often focus on what a benefit it is for our community to have this space right here in the Bay. And of course that's totally true.

But it's also great for us. Here's just one recent example: one of our volunteers walked across the parking lot to Redmond's Home Hardware, where Dave took time and trouble to help our volunteer figure out how to adjust his wife's new (kind of complicated!) watchband. Just a neighbour helping a neighbour.

We're so glad we're here for our neighbours. And we're grateful our neighbours are always here for us, too.

Have a great weekend, neighbours!

SMBCEC Grand opening and sign unveiling

The weather may have been a little bit dull but spirits were certainly not when so many people turned-up to celebrate the grand opening of the new St. Margaret’s Bay Community Enterprise Centre on April 26, 2018.

It was great to see how so many different groups, organizations and businesses came together to share their support of this fantastic initiative. This is exactly what the CEC is all about, bringing people together in a place that allows for networking and connecting, and this evening was certainly full of that.

After canapes and refreshments everyone went outside to see the new CEC sign being unveil, then it was back inside for the cutting of the grand opening celebration cake – beautifully made depicting the new CEC logo.

Well done to Eliot Matheson, logo and sign designer, who was presented with a prize for his winning entry into the logo competition during the event; and well done too to the CEC board and all the volunteers that made the event a complete success.
