The Hillsborough Farmers Market was scheduled to open on the May long weekend. The opening has been postponed until further notice. Unfortunately, farmers’ markets have not been deemed essential in New Brunswick. Until the regulations are changed or lifted, the market will remain closed. In the meantime, the vendors will be busy creating and producing at home and building up their inventory.
We want to let everyone know that our annual Maple Breakfast (which had been planned for early April) has not been cancelled, only postponed. We always have such a great time serving up our French toast breakfast and visiting with people in the community. We will reschedule as soon as the regulations allow. We look forward to seeing you then!

Talk With Our Kids About Money Day (TWOKAM) is April 15th. This day, which is celebrated across Canada, encourages parents, guardians and educators to take time to talk with children and youth on any aspect of finance. The Canadian Foundation for Economic Education (CFEE), a non-profit organization, coordinates this initiative. This will be the sixth year that TWOKAM has been in New Brunswick. Below are a number of points that you may wish to consider and may assist in sparking the conversation.

The Chipoudy Communities Revitalization Committee (CCRC) Calendar Committee is in the process of organizing another fantastic calendar for 2021. This follows the success of last year’s calendar sales in which half the profits (approx. $2500) were donated to the Riverside Playground Project. The 2021 theme will be pictures of native wildlife (fur, feathers or fins) displaying, we hope, beautiful Albert County surroundings. Our previous calendars have been so popular that they have been purchased for gifts and souvenirs to be sent around the world
