heading out for the Big Ex and the "Pepsi Grand Street Parade"
Since 1891, the community of Bridgewater has hosted one of the oldest agricultural exhibitions in our region. The "Big Ex" continues to draw together people from Nova Scotia's South Shore, and each year it kicks off with a community parade.
This year the Bridgewater Baptist Church's entry brought a little African safari to Lunenburg County as we promoted next week's vacation Bible School program "Roar." The rainy parade day did not dampen our spirits as the Bridgewater Baptist crew danced and clapped to the worship songs of our upcoming children's ministry.
A big thank you to our children's coordinator, Maria Vanderwall,
for organizing this year's parade crew. It was a great day!

A big shout out to the Lewis family for so graciously supplying our lead vehicle and the incredible sound system. The Roar was heard and felt!
Celebrating Emma's highschool graduation with family and friends this past Friday evening on Prince Edward Island.
Emma has been enjoying a great summer working as the medic at Canoe Cove Christian Camp on the South Shore of Prince Edward Island. Along with new friends, she and Ava have had a lot of fun getting to know their cousins the rest of our Island family.
On Friday, Grampy and Grammie Kenny hosted a graduation party for Emma at their home in Brackley. We were grateful for the many relatives, friends, and camp staff that came out to celebrate Emma and enjoy the barbecue.
Emma and Ava will be working at the camp over the next two weeks, before returning to Nova Scotia in early August. We are excited that both of our girls will be serving with the children's program this August during the Oasis gathering of Canadian Baptists of Atlantic Canada in Moncton.
Thank you for continuing to keep our family in your prayers as we settle into life here in the maritimes.
