November Highlights

November 14, 2007 § Leave a comment

Since I have so far neglected to do a calendar of local activities this month, I thought I’d briefly mention a few highlights in the seoncd half of this month.

Musique Royale
November 17 at 11:00 am at Cecilia’s Retreat (1199 Oakland Rd., Mahone Bay)
November 17 at 7:30 pm at Ifan Williams’ home (135 Indian Point Rd., Glen Haven)
Cellist Michael Jones performs a solo program, including works by JS Bach and a new Canadian work. The morning concert includes a brunch of chicken and rice platter and assorted salads, and the evening performance includes a cheese and cracker platter and sundry appetizers.

Lunenburg Sessions
November 20 at 7:30; Lunenburg Academy (97 Kaulbach St., Lunenburg)
This month brings Bob Ardern & Kristen Murray, who performed on the Ken Matheson Stage at this year’s Lunenburg Folk Festival.
tickets $5.00

The Pearl Theatre
November 23 at 8:00 pm; The Pearl Theatre in Lunenburg
Craig Cardiff of Wakefield, Quebec is touring for his new album, Goodnight (Go Home). Gordon Lightfoot’s a fan— maybe you should be, too?
tickets $15

Waldorf Christmas Fair
November 24 from 1:00 till 4:00 pm; Waldorf School (64 School Rd., Blockhouse)
Lots of handmade goods for your holiday list: dipped candles, clothing, jewellery, batik, edibles, potables, a silent auction and lots more.

Father Christmas Festival
November 24 — December 2; Mahone Bay
Here’s the official site where you can download your very own calendar of events.

And if you haven’t been yet, Chester now has its own organics store, called, logically enough, Chester Organics. It’s small, but nicely stocked with lots of Anointment soaps and organic goods from near and far. Sue LeBlanc, the charming proprietress, has a tidy section for local produce, and tentative plans to get involved with CSA next season— just think! Local, organic vegetables delivered to your door… wonderful. The store also features a small kitchen, a deli counter, and bulk grains and flours, and plans for a supplement section. She’s taking orders for Christmas turkeys right now, so go in for a chat soon… It’s the same building as Fiasco, across from Julien’s.
