This note comes to us from GANS - "Since we don't have a monthly lecture planned for April, we've been busy planning a number of other ventures that will take us out into the community. Tomorrow, Bob Davison, VP; Dawn Josey, Membership and Correspondence Secretary and I will be attending the Kings County Genealogy and Family History Committee meeting at the Kings County Museum in Kentville at 1:30 pm to promote the August 25 30th Anniversary event. As well, we will be at the West Hants Historical Society monthly meeting in Windsor at 7:30 tomorrow night. We will again provide information about the 30th Anniversary event and Dawn Josey will be giving her "Research to Artwork" presentation. If you missed Dawn's presentation in January, come and join us tomorrow night. Here is a little bit about the presentation and Dawn: Dawn Josey, a visual artist, has taken her family research from paper to works of art telling the story for generations to come. Come hear how your story can be told visually. Dawn Josey is a mixed media artist living in Enfield, Nova Scotia. For 17 years she practiced Biomedical photography first in Life Science then Biology at Dalhousie University. She is an elected member of the Society of Canadian Artists and a board member of Visual Arts Nova Scotia who exhibits her work in group and solo shows throughout the province. She is currently continuing studies at NSCAD. On Saturday, April 14 and Sunday, April 15, GANS will have a table at the Shearwater Spring Hobby Show held at the Aviation Museum in Shearwater outside of Dartmouth. You'll be able to purchase our publications, register for the 30th Anniversary event or pick up some handouts. We could use some help during those two days. The show is open from 10:00 to 4:00 both days. So far, four members of the executive have volunteered, but it would be nice to have at least two people at the table at all times. If you'd like to spend a half day with one of us, it would help us immensely. Send me a quick email and let me know which half day you are available. As a bonus, the company is pretty good too! :) If you can't help out, please consider coming to the show - drop by to introduce yourself and say hello. The show is wonderful entertainment and at $3.00 per person/$10 per family, is an excellent bargain. Proceeds are donated to the Aviation Museum."
Hope to see you at any or all of the above events! Regards, Pamela Wile Programme Convener https://www.facebook.com/NovaScotiaAncestors
