Pictou County and the Town of New Glasgow have been awarded the games this year and they are scheduled to be held from September 17th to the 19th. Just recently built is the Pictou County Wellness Centre which contains huge swimming pools, 2 ice surfaces, a gym and exercise facilities and meetings rooms. This building will be used as the centre of our games and the opening and closing ceremonies are being held here as well. The 2015 Host Committee have been meeting for almost a year and are well on their way to presenting a memorable experience for everyone.
Hi! We are very fortunate that there are people in Pictou who are interested in trying to promote the town and what is happening. Michelle LeBlanc who operates the Evening Sail B & B has volunteered to organize a Facebook page for the happenings in Pictou and keep it updated. This is her request to me and I would like if you would forward it to your friends also. All the help our town can get would be so very much appreciated..........thanks so much!...........Beth

For every 1000 Likes we get on the page, we'll donate $100.00 to the Ship Hector. It's a great way to keep up to date on what's happening in town and help out a great cause at the same time! For those who are into Facebook themselves, there is any easy option to "invite" their own friends to Like the page as well...
