To-day, we made history once again in Annapolis Royal, the capital of Nova Scotia from 1710 to 1749!
Newly elected Premier Stephen McNeil brought the members of his cabinet to Annapolis Royal’s King’s Theatre to be sworn in, the first time the ceremony has taken place outside of Halifax since 1923. Calling our little town “the cradle of democracy”, Premier McNeil made us all proud to live in rural Nova Scotia.
Although not strictly vintage himself, Premier McNeil understands the value of heritage and the strength and beauty of old-fashioned family ties. So happy to support him in his work for all Nova Scotians.
Crowd at King’s Theatre waiting for our new Premier.

Another enjoyable evening of music at Mrs. Nicholson Home on Friday night as people wandered in and out for the last First Friday of 2013 while munching on delicious Cortland apples.
Our regular musicians were here and played for two hours!
We look forward to having them back here on June 6th 2014 for next year’s first First Friday.
And still another week to shop at Mrs. Nicholson Home before we close for the season on Saturday the 12th.
