Hammonds Plains Heritage Day – 2016

We know it’s still a long way off, but a number of HPABA board members and community members are hard-at-work planning Hammonds Plains Heritage Day 2016!!

This one day event has been created to celebrate the community of Hammonds Plains, Nova Scotia. Established in the past, it was originally called the Labour Day Picnic, and the aim is to revive this great community event. The objective of this event is to foster community spirit, through collaboration and friendly neighbourhood competition. Each year a different competition will take place to draw the collective neighbourhoods together (i.e Kingswood, Uplands Park, etc). In addition to a competition, interactive, family-focused activities will be set up inside the Hammonds Plains Community Centre and outside under temporary fair tents, allowing local businesses and organizations to participate. The intent of these activities is to showcase our rich history and thriving and diverse community.

Activities planned include a Washer Toss Tournament, Blue Barn Farms Corn Boil, Kohoot Ol’ Fashioned Photo Booth, Pie Baking & Floral Competitions, Interactive Music Corner, Mini Petting Zoo, Turkey Shoot, and a Historical Display & Coloring Contest, to name a few. Also invited to participate is the Sipeke’katik Band, local churches, the African Canadian communities and our local politicians. The day event will conclude with a ceremony that recognizes the winners of the tournament and competitions and crowning of the HP community “Citizen of the Year”. The final event of the day will be a fundraising adult dance at the community centre, with proceeds going towards that evening’s sponsoring organization.

Due to the exciting events planned and the inclusion of many groups, businesses and organizations, we anticipate a very large turn out. If you wish to participate in organizing, sponsoring or volunteering, please contact Brian at chair@hpaba.ca.

Date: Saturday, August 13th
Time: 3pm-6pm   Dance: 9pm-1am
