The 4th Annual BACH Foundation Golf Tournament was held June 16th at the Hillsborough Golf Club. As in previous years, there was great community participation from sponsors and participants. The board would like to thank sponsors and participants with a special thank you to our Gold sponsor (Scotiabank) and Silver Sponsors (Atlantic Underground Services, Albert County Trailblazers, Ed's Welding, Gary Steeves Insurance and Tidewater Physiotherapy Inc.). The funds raised will allow the foundation to fund a variety of projects at the Health Centre and in the community in the coming year.

You may know us as the Albert Vocational Training Centre, but we have recently renamed our agency as the Albert Career Development Centre (ACDC) to better reflect the services we provide.

Help! We fell off the workout wagon—big time!
Remember last month I was touting this fast paced wonderful workout, Richard Simmons-style? "Let's all clean up Albert County together! Go outside, look around your property, the ditches, along the roadway, your favourite walking paths and clean up any wayward garbage. All it takes is the 20-Minute Blast-Off Work-out—pick up litter and drop calories, all at the same time."
Social isolation is a problem in rural areas—but less so in our area thanks to Tele-Drive Albert County. For a low cost, anyone in the county can be picked up from their house, driven to wherever they need to go, and taken back home again. The result? Seniors who lose their licenses or can’t afford cars are able to live in their own homes longer—Tele-Drive will take them to medical appointments, the grocery store and even social events. Parents can take their children to the doctor, to early literacy programs, to the library and more.
