My name is Heather Kelly and some know me as the What's Up Lady on Liverpool's local radio station, QCCR 99.3. It all started with a community calendar and posting events for the Queens County area. I started a blog called Queens County Community with the focal point being the community calendar. There were lots of places in Queens County to find
out about events in this area, including on line calendars, but I felt it would be more useful if everything was in one place. This then spread to Facebook and Twitter and QCCR radio.
Queens County and especially Liverpool, have loads to offer in the way of extra curricular activities, hobbies, fitness and cultural events. Just one look at the Queens Community Calendar will tell you that. There you can find weekly events, a bulletin board with local event posters, lists of annual events and links to connect you to life in Queens County.
The calendar for the Astor Theatre is full from weekend movies to the Wednesday Cinema Series to full blown theatrical productions and concerts featuring east coast talent as well as international presentations.
Local festivals are abundant with the Liverpool International Theatre Festival in May to Privateer Days in July and Music Nova Scotia in November and tonnes in between. Always something to look forward to.
There is no shortage of fitness classes, which will be required as you may find it hard to resist the home cooked community suppers and local service group breakfasts. However, there are plenty of other ways to get your exercise. How about Monday Night Bowling, Tuesday Night Basketball, Wednesday Night Curling, Thursday Night Hockey and Friday Night Dancing. If that doesn't make you want to sleep in on Saturday, you can come out and join in the local Social Walk through the beautiful Trestle Trail.
If you are already a highly tuned athlete and are more interested in keeping your mind sharp, you could always join in the local bridge club every Friday, darts every Thursday, play some cribbage on Saturday's, card parties and bingo practically everyday or take a class in cooking, computer basics, digital cameras or quilting.
It's nice to know that there is so much on offer, but you may just want to sit in the park and watch the sun set.
There's lots happening in Queens County
