On June 6, I attended a fundraiser for the West Hants Sports Complex (held at the Schoolhouse Brewery, which was a bonus!). The $15 million project has been partially funded through contributions from the municipality, the federal government and the province, but they are still in need of funds to see the project through. Construction is supposed to begin in late summer of 2019, with the completion date set for the summer of 2020. To help see the project to fruition, the municipality is undertaking a major fundraising campaign. If you have not seen the plans, the sportsplex is a beautiful and functional facility, with multiple purposes (although the ice rink will be the star attraction). So do what you can to support this great initiative! Below is a video of the West Hants' Warden Abraham Zebian (introduced by the Town Cryer) discussing the various ways you can donate to this great cause. See also the Kings County News for more coverage of the event.
