  1. I am wondering if it would be possible to make an announcement for us. This is our situation. We are in Sackville for the summer months as our son had a position at the Visitor’s Information Center from May until September 25. We have been lucky to sub-let from a student until September 1, but now we need to find housing for September. We are a retired couple who provide care for our son during this work placement as our son requires care with dressing, etc. so we are his caregivers. He has cerebral palsy which causes reduced mobility. I am wondering if anyone would have a small place for us to stay for this time period. We need a place to sleep, bathroom, and kitchen privileges. We live in New Glasgow for the rest of the year and could provide references if necessary. You may know of someone who might have a cottage, a small apartment, etc. Our phone number is 902-771-2827, and our email is


    • Hello friends – we will certainly mention this in church and see if anyone is able to help or knows of someone who might assist.
