We're disappointed that the Red Roof Art Show, scheduled for Saturday and Sunday, November 28 and 29 at the CEC had to be cancelled in light of the Covid situation. The nine participating artists are so talented, and we know many people were looking forward to the show, including the CEC family.

But, PLEASE, continue to support these and other local artists and artisans, especially this year. We have asked the nine artists who were to have been in this weekend's show to provide their contact details. Many of them have websites, Facebook pages and other mechanisms to allow us to see their work and buy their work.

And we look forward to the day that we can host them, and you, again in person.

IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENT

The Community Enterprise Centre is closed to the general public, effective immediately and lasting until at least December 9, to comply with provincial guidelines and requirements, and in support of the safety of our volunteers, our members and our community.

From 10 am to noon on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays, Bay residents donating items for Christmas gift bags for seniors, picking up card kits for Kids' Cards for Seniors, dropping off items for Christmas in the Bay, or attending for any other purpose, may still visit the CEC as follows:

Please knock on the front door, which will be kept locked, and wait on the deck for the volunteer on duty. For the safety of our volunteer and anyone else who may be waiting at the door, please wear a mask and maintain a 2m distance from others.

Thank you for your understanding. Together, we'll get through this.

Welcome to our first Saturday Sparkle post!

As this is a sale, not an auction, the first person to commit to buying an item is the successful buyer. The Community Enterprise Centre at 5229 St. Margaret's Bay Road is the payment and purchase pick-up location.

Sorry, we can't hold items pending a prospective buyer viewing them in person. But items not marked as SOLD on our Facebook posts will be available for in-person purchase at the Community Enterprise Centre for the week after items are posted in Saturday Sparkle.

We are committed to gentle pricing, so items will generally be below market value. If you think we're charging too much or too little, please send us a private message. We will do our best to provide information on the items when it's available, but it is often not available. If there's damage or wear, we'll mention that in the post or make sure it's visible in photos.

Questions? Ready to buy something? Please post in the comments or send us a private message. And have fun!

We are so grateful to the many generous community members who have donated. Now let's raise some money for the SMB Food Bank!

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.
