Spring into Spring Business & Community Expo

The East Hants & Districts Chamber of Commerce has partnered with Anita Hamilton and Ovarian Cancer Canada to bring you the Spring into Spring Business & Community Expo on April 16th. The EHCC believes this is a great opportunity to showcase local businesses and to grow awareness of what East Hants has to offer.

Anita Hamilton is a 11-year survivor of ovarian cancer from Enfield and wants to celebrate and give back. She plans to celebrate survival, to educate people about the signs and symptoms of ovarian cancer and to raise funds for Ovarian Cancer Canada. (www.ovariancanada.org)

The “Spring into Spring” expo will showcase community resources, local businesses, food, art, handcrafts, products and services. Local musicians will entertain us, and lunch and snack items will be available for everyone’s enjoyment. The event is at the Enfield Fire Hall on April 16th from 10am-2pm.

There will be a free-will offering at the door. Donations of $15 or more will be given charitable tax receipts.

Businesses interested in contributing to the event can contact Anita to:

  • Make a minimum donation of $50.00 (fully receipt-able by OCC) to participate in “Spring into Spring” to demonstrate your product or service and have items for sale
    and/or
  • Offer an item or a service for the silent auction, and/or
  • Offer a financial contribution to Ovarian Cancer Canada that will be presented on your behalf at the event on April 16th.
