Linden Ave. Construction Update
WaterWorld Update:
Linden Ave. is part of a larger project that also includes
upgrades to: Summer St. and Chestnut Ave. Construction on
Linden Ave. is nearing completion. All of the underground
infrastructure – water, sanitary, and storm – was replaced
and the street is being rebuild with new: gravels, asphalt,
concrete curb, and concrete sidewalk on the east side. The
sidewalk should be completed by the end of November.
The contract is approximately two to three weeks behind
schedule but the majority of work will be completed this
year. The final lift of asphalt will be placed next year.
Editor’s Update: not more than 3 hours
after we sent the last issue to the printers,
we received a response from the Town
of Wolfville in regards to Mr. Wilsack’s
waterfront raft (see below). As for Ms.
Huskins, I’m sure there will be an update in
an upcoming issue.
The avenue is 24 ft. wide from curb to curb which is a bit
more narrow than it was but there will still be parking on
one side. These changes (along with only one sidewalk) are
being made in an effort to reduce our overall infrastructure
and control our capital and ongoing maintenance costs.
Kevin Kerr
Director of Public Works
From Gregg Morrison:
The research I have done would indicate
that the land is crown land (owned by the
province), as it is below the normal highwater mark. The Provincial Department of
Natural Resources would be the primary
agency of control of the land on behalf of
the Province. My information comes from
Ms. Kim Huskins (679-6229) at the DNR
office in Kentville.

MERMAID THEATRE OF NOVA SCOTIA’S PUPPET CABARET FUNDRAISER
Saturday, November 2, at 7pm - Mermaid
Theatre of Nova Scotia will hold its first-ever
Puppet Cabaret Fundraiser on Saturday,
November 2, 2013 from 7-10pm. The event
will be held at the Mermaid Imperial Performing Arts Centre at 106 Gerrish Street in
Windsor. Cocoa Pesto Catering will provide
a wonderful selection of hot and cold hors
d’oeuvres, a cash bar will be available, and
everyone will have the chance to bid on
great auction items, including pieces from
Mermaid’s talented creative team.
Guests will be treated to a lively revue
performed by some of the most prominent
citizens and business people in Windsor and
West Hants. Bringing puppets to life on
stage will be Mermaid's "community puppeteers," including Jennifer Daniels, Alex
Jurgens, Laurie Murley, Jon Oulton, and
Jeff Redden. Hosted on the MIPAC stage by
Global TV’s Jill Chappell, this is definitely
not Mermaid’s usual Theatre for Young
Audiences fare!
The funds raised will support Mermaid's
unique community outreach programs.
Tickets are $60, which includes one free
drink, and a tax receipt will be issued for
a portion of the ticket price. Tickets are
available at Mermaid’s office at 132 Gerrish
Street, at Windsor Home Hardware, or

e didn’t plan on moving to
Wolfville. It was a semi-spontaneous decision made so that we
could work in the field we both studied:
archaeology. We chose this place because
it seemed nice with a strong sense of community. We cast a good-luck spell to get the
apartment we loved. It worked! This was
the first random act of kindness, bestowed
upon us by ourselves. But that was over a
year ago, and our archaeology contract has
long since ended. We stayed here, though,

Seymour is a lovely, neutered orange-and-white domestic
shorthair. He is approximately seven months old and is a
very friendly boy! He had been hit by a car when he came
to us from Greenwood, but now he is all
healed and ready to go to a new and loving
home.
kindness: the lady at Pete’s who practices
her French with Alex; the market for allowing me to volunteer; the overall friendliness
of this place. But mostly because of our
neighbour Eric, who has become a wonderful friend and guide, and whom we will
miss very much. Archaeology brought us
here, but kindness kept us here longer than
we planned on staying. Thanks, Wolfville.
We will miss you!

Update on NILE: Still Available
Nile is a Labrabull, which is a cross between a black Labrador Retriever and the American Pit Bull Terrier.
Random Act of Kindness is Brought to you by: Daniels’ Flower Shop Ltd. 40 Water St, Windsor
798-5337 www.danielsflowershop.net
Nile is currently residing at the Kings SPCA shelter in Waterville. His indoor manners need a lot of work, but with
the right person he has the potential to be a wonderful
and devoted family dog. He is always happy to see people,
and eagerly greets them in a high-intensity, hyper way.
He loves giving kisses and lying on laps when someone
is sitting, and he whines, cries and barks when he feels
he is not receiving enough undivided attention. Nile is well-socialized and keeps our other
dogs at the shelter in shape by playing with them in our outdoor kennel. Unfortunately, in
his previous life he did not receive much in the way of training, so he is difficult to walk as he
pulls and tugs you along. Nile's boosters are up to date and he is neutered. If he sounds like
the companion for you, please visit the NS SPCA Kings Branch in Waterville.

O
n Sundays when I was growing up in Little Ridge,
New Brunswick, after church and a big roast beef or
chicken dinner, Mama would gather her children for the
mile-long walk behind our house to the St. Croix River.
This was family at its best: blessed, fed and relaxed after a
busy week of hard work. Mama would tell us stories of our
ancestors or tales about fairyland. We listened for birds,
identified flowers, looked for bear tracks under the wild
apple tree, and hoped we might even see a moose.
VALLEY REFUGE HOUSING &
PORTAL DROP IN CENTRE
If you are a young mom wondering if there is anyone out there facing the same challenges you
are, or if you could use a free night to just get out and have some fun and leave your worries
for a night; if you are a young guy looking for a way to get out and enjoy the outdoors and
enjoy being active; or if you simply want a cool place to come hang out with a few friends—we
have groups that can answer those questions and do those things for you!
Years later, one of my sisters called to tell me of plans for the celebration of Mother’s
65th birthday. She wondered if I might bring my guitar and sing a song. I was always
keen to sing, but the few songs I had written, I pretty much kept to myself. Putting
down the phone I felt the conviction that I would write a song for her. With that
thought, the lyrics to “A Walk to the River” came tumbling out, and I scrambled to
write them down. When I picked up my guitar, the melody seemed like it had always
been there. It was such a delicious feeling, writing that love
song to my mother and family.
That day I was gifted with a song that would be a gift to my
mother and family. I felt humbled, but oh, so lucky. I thought,
I do this: I write songs. Twenty years later, I like nothing
better than being seduced by the feeling that there is a song
coming, and I marvel at the mystery of it all.

Designer Nancy Denton-Peck works with remnants and recyclables to
design garments that are literally “one on the planet.” Her polar-fleece
ponchos and hats fit well into this category, as polar fleece is 100% recycled plastic! At this year’s Acadia Craft Expo on Nov. 15- 17, she will be
featuring ponchos and hats with hand-knit collars and cuffs, 10 of which
are in Acadia colors (navy and red). No two are alike. Fleece teddy bears
from remnants and a rack of little girls' "Scrapit" clothes will also be part
of her booth (#78). ONE-ON-EARTH has been around for about eight
years. “I began designing ladies' jackets out of scraps as a way to use up
my accumulated remnants, and it has grown from there. It's really been a
very diverse way for me to feed my creative appetite.”
As for Remembrance Day...although post WWII children cannot remember, we can consciously think about the ravages of war, the sacrifice paid by so many and be ever-grateful for
the incredible gift we have been given in Canada. I have the freedom to make my dreams a
reality, thanks to the generations that came before me.

MIKE Uncorked:
ometimes the
subjects I choose
to write about in this
column put me into
strange and unfamiliar territory (anyone
remember last year’s
On Tree Park Ziplining article?). Well,
this past weekend I
ventured down to the
Wolfville Curling Club
(it’s only a stone’s
throw away). I took my first lesson ever on
how to curl! Actually it was my first time IN
that curling club, located at 22 Elm Avenue.
It’s a beautiful and timeless facility equipped
with an upstairs games room, fully operational kitchen and hall for special events. Downstairs is the pièce de résistance, the four-sheet
(lane) curling arena.
I am not very sportsy, as you can tell because
I just used the word sportsy. I enjoy watching
some sports on TV, like football or basketball
or even golf, but I would never think to play
these sports because I am not an aggressive
or competitive person, so it was just never my
thing to try out. And so, with writing these
articles and trying new things, I decided to
give curling a go and I have to say, it was a
lot of fun! I only ever thought I could curl
my hair, my lip, or up against someone for
warmth, but I was mistaken.
I took part in one of three Learn to Curl
sessions (the other two have passed but
that doesn’t mean you still can’t join and
have fun), and with the help of the curlingclub gang—Gerry Watson, Tony Stirling,
Tim Amos, and Fred Crouse—I was shown
the very basic ins and outs of the game and
taught all about how to score, position myself,
throw the rock, how to be safe on the ice and
how to hold my stick…. Stop giggling. I really
didn’t know how to before this!
I’m one of those people who always says
“Well it looks so easy on TV, of course I can
do that.” Well, if I ever said it about curling,
I was wrong: it’s not as easy as it looks on
TV. But it is fun and I did do it, after practise

for your patience!
Gerry was my prime
instructor and it
was straightforward
talk that was all about safety on the ice and
making sure I was positioned as not to hurt
myself or fall on my butt. This didn’t happen
once! I learned about sliders, grippers, hacks,
buttons, handles and more. I have never been
so proud to make a clean sweep of the house!
And have you ever passed a 44-pound stone?
Well, I have, and I must say, I rocked the

curling a good source of exercise, but half the
fun is the socializing with friends. And even

representative from the club has been present
at the Wolfville Farmers’ Market trying
to encourage others to join. It’s been very
beneficial, but they needed my big mouth and
the Grapevine exposure to spread the word. I
hope you all take the time to consider it. If I
can do it…. then trust me, you can HACK it
too!

Vigil for Harley
It’s a transition that can happen to more than
just individuals. This week, our small farming
town of Berwick, working sun-up to sundown harvesting the apple, corn, and carrot
crops before the leaves on the trees make way
for another season, came of age.
Harley Lawrence, 62, a harmless and homeless soul known to the townsfolk as someone
battling mental issues which made it difficult
for him to accept even basic offers of a warm
bed, gathered his few belongings in a bus shelter and lay down for the night. He will never
know that he ushered our community
into the kind of ugliness we usually hear
about happening everywhere other than here.
Between 400 and 500 people attended the
vigil on October 26. Among those present
were some of Harley’s family, whom many
of us learned about for the first time (he was

from the Hantsport area). There was a little
rain that night. Hopefully it helped some folks
understand what the homeless face day to
day.

questions with as much certainty as possible.
Write it all down, preferably in the form of
a contract with yourself. Sign the contract.
This document will be your sacred promise, a
declaration of the boundaries you won't cross
and the activities you won't waste your time
on and the desires that aren't worthy of you.
It will feed your freedom to know exactly what
you like and what you want to accomplish and
who you want to become. Halloween costume
suggestion: the opposite of who you really are.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Are you up for an
experiment? Not just on Halloween, but for a
week afterwards, be scarier than your fears. If
an anxious thought pops into your mind, bare
your teeth and growl, "Get out of here or I will
rip you to shreds!" If a demon visits you in a
nightly dream, chase after it with a torch and
sword, screaming "Begone, foul spirit, or I will
burn your mangy ass!" Don't tolerate bullying
in any form, whether it comes from a critical
little voice in your head or from supposedly
nice people who are trying to guilt-trip you.
"I am a brave conqueror who cannot be
intimidated!" is what you could say, or "I am a
monster of love and goodness who will defeat
all threats to my integrity!"
CANCER (June 21-July 22): Are you ready to
be amazed? Now would be an excellent time to
shed your soul's infantile illusions . . . to play
wildly with the greatest mystery you know .
. . to accept gifts that enhance your freedom
and refuse gifts that don't . . . to seek out a
supernatural encounter that heals your chronic
sadness . . . to consort and converse with sexy
magical spirits from the future . . . to make
love with the lights on and cry when you come.
Halloween costume suggestion: the archetypal
LOVER.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Some people in your
vicinity are smoldering and fuming. The air
is heavy with emotional ferment. Conspiracy
theories are ripening and rotting at the
same time. Hidden agendas are seeping into
conversations, and gossip is swirling like
ghostly dust devils. Yet in the midst of this
mayhem, an eerie calm possesses you. As
everyone else struggles, you're poised and full
of grace. To what do we owe this stability? I
suspect it has to do with the fact that life is
showing you how to feel at home in the world
no matter what's happening around you. Keep
making yourself receptive to these teachings.
Halloween costume suggestion: King or Queen
of Relaxation.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Unification should
be a key theme for you in the coming weeks.
Anything you do that promotes splicing and
blending and harmonizing will get extra help,
sometimes from mysterious forces working
behind the scenes. The more you work to find
common ground between opposing sides, the
stronger you'll feel and the better you'll look.
If you can manage to mend schisms and heal
wounds, unexpected luck will flow into your
life. To encourage these developments, consider
these Halloween disguises: a roll of tape, a stick
of Krazy Glue, a wound that's healing, a bridge.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): What do you think
you'd be like if you were among the onepercent-wealthiest people on Earth? Would
you demand that your government raise your
taxes so you could contribute more to our
collective well-being? Would you live simply
and cheaply so you'd have more money to
donate to charities and other worthy causes?
This Halloween season, I suggest you play
around with fantasies like that -- maybe even
masquerade as an incredibly rich philanthropist
who doles out cash and gifts everywhere you
go. At the very least, imagine what it would be
like if you had everything you needed and felt
so grateful you shared your abundance freely.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): What if you
had the power to enchant and even bewitch
people with your charisma? Would you wield
your allure without mercy? Would you feel
wicked delight in their attraction to you, even
if you didn't plan to give them what they
want? I suspect these questions aren't entirely
rhetorical right now. You may have more mojo
at your disposal than you realize. Speaking for
your conscience, I will ask you not to desecrate
your privilege. If you must manipulate people,
do it for their benefit as well as yours. Use your
raw magic responsibly. Halloween costume
suggestion: a mesmerizing guru; an irresistible
diva; a stage magician.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): I had a
dream that you were in the film O Brother,
Where Art Thou? You were like the character
played by George Clooney after he escaped
from a prison chain gang. Can you picture it?
You were wearing a striped jailbird suit, and
a ball and chain were still cuffed around your
ankle. But you were sort of free, too. You were
on the lam, making your way from adventure
to adventure as you eluded those who would
throw you back in the slammer. You were not
yet in the clear, but you seemed to be en route
to total emancipation. I think this dream is
an apt metaphorical depiction of your actual
life right now. Could you somehow use it in
designing your Halloween costume?
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): I invite you
to try the following exercise. Imagine the most
powerful role you could realistically attain in
the future. This is a position or niche or job that
will authorize you to wield your influence to
the max. It will give you the clout to shape the
environments you share with other people. It
will allow you to freely express your important
ideas and have them be treated seriously.
Let your imagination run a little wild as you
visualize the possibilities. Incorporate your
visions into your Halloween costume.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): In the course
of earning a living, I have worked four different
jobs as a janitor and six as a dishwasher. On the
brighter side, I have performed as a songwriter
and lead singer for six rock bands and currently
write a syndicated astrology column. According
to my analysis of the astrological omens, you
Aquarians are primed to cultivate a relationship
with your work life that is more like my latter
choices than the former. The next eight months
will be a favorable time to ensure that you'll
be doing your own personal equivalent of rock
singer or astrology columnist well into the
future. Halloween costume suggestion: your
dream job.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Author Robert
Louis Stevenson loved the work of poet Walt
Whitman, recommending it with the same
enthusiasm as he did Shakespeare's. Stevenson
also regarded Whitman as an unruly force of
nature, and in one famous passage, called him
"a large shaggy dog, just unchained, scouring
the beaches of the world and baying at the
moon." Your assignment is to do your best
imitation of a primal creature like Whitman. In
fact, consider being him for Halloween. Maybe
you could memorize passages from Whitman's
Leaves of Grass and recite them at random
moments. Here's one: "I too am not a bit
tamed, I too am untranslatable, / I sound my
barbaric YAWP over the roofs of the world."
Editor: Here's this week's
homework: Meditate on death not as
the end of physical life, but as a metaphor
for shedding what's outworn. In that light,
what's the best death you've experienced?

Old Love
Old Love can mean a chronological age or a remembrance of a time past—and sometimes it’s
both! Although this play is romantic and clever, it’s definitely not sentimental. The story
spans three decades and a handful of meetings. He was smitten from the first, and she—well,
let’s just say “less so.” The witty dialogue of this dramatic comedy keeps you chuckling and is
laugh-out-loud-funny as each discovers what is important in life and in love.
Written by Canada’s preeminent comic playwright Norm Foster, and directed by Candy
O’Brien, this play will appeal to mature audiences. Due to language and subject matter, it
is not recommended for children under 13. Cast members include Peter Booth, Carole Ball,
Ansonia Gray, Tracy Churchill, and Geoff Ball.
Old Love plays on November 8, 9, 15, 16, 22, 23, 24m, 29, 30, December 6, 7, 8m, 13, 14.
Showtime 8pm / 2pm matinee on November 24 and December 8.

The Who's Who
Mark Riley:
The Man with the Bands!
T
his man
has got
me singing the blues
and singing his
praises! Ladies
and gentleman,
Mark Riley!
Mark Riley was
born into a very
musical family,
just outside of
Dartmouth,
in Lake Loon.
Mark’s dad,
now almost 80, has been singing and playing
guitar in church and gospel groups since
he was a young man. Mark, along with his
nine brothers and sisters, grew up singing in
choirs, gospel groups, and family sing-songs.
Those musical roots eventually took him and
his talent to Toronto, where he played music
with a few bands and was featured in a film
for the Department of Education call Know
Your Rights.
Mark returned to Nova Scotia and joined the
EMCA–winning Nova Scotia Mass Choir as
a soloist and a tenor. About seven years ago,
Mark connected with the band Shoulder to
Shoulder and filled in as a drummer. He sang
one song with them, and the rest is history.
Mark formed the Mark Riley Band about
six years ago, and even though he’s gone
through various members, it still remains
one of the busiest bands in the area. P.M.
Blues is another one of Mark’s bands, playing
primarily blues music. The 15-piece Bluesmobile was formed in 2012 as a project band
with local musician Bernie Zinck. I have seen
Bluesmobile put on a show, and it is really
quite incredible, folks!
You can find information about all of Mark’s
upcoming gigs on Facebook. Each group has
its own page. And keep an eye out for The
Mark Riley Band website, which will soon
be released. A CD is also in the works. For
now, here’s a little date to MARK on your
calendars… Join Bluesmobile on Saturday,
November 9, 9pm to 12am, at The Cornwallis
Inn Ballroom. PLEASE NOTE this WILL be a
licensed event! Tickets are $15 and are available Long & McQuade in New Minas.
Music is not Mark’s only talent, though.
He has also trained as both an electrician
and an appliance-repair technician, and he
ran his own business for many years. In the
past Mark has
also coached
and played
basketball, as
well as played
and coached
his childhood
passion: hockey.
These days, despite loving his
time working
with teams at
Horton High,
North East
Kings, King’s
Minor and Valley East Basketball Association, it’s all about the music for Mark.
After making the move to Wolfville while his
wife attended university here, Mark made
the decision to concentrate on music on a
full-time basis. He took employment with
Long & McQuade, the go-to place for music
supplies, and this allows him to feed his passion for music and meet others in the music
community of the valley.
Mark says, “Since I have been in the Valley, I
have had many opportunities to perform in
different settings and genres. The variety of
talent and venues here is really great. From
soft Jazz at the Blomidon Inn, to R&B at the
Kings Arms Pub, to gospel at Acadia, it is
all here! There are also festivals and celebrations, many of which I have been a part of
in Nova Scotia including the Wharf Rat Bike
Rally, Heart of the Valley, New Minas Days,
Halifax Natal Day and Canada Day Celebrations to name a few.”
The road ahead is paved with many shows
and concerts. Mark plans to continue with
Shoulder to Shoulder and the Bluesmobile
Band, as well as gospel events whenever possible. Mark’s heart remains with the church
and his faith, and he will always put those
loves into his music. And in all of the talents,
hobbies, and occupations I’ve mentioned, I
almost forgot to mention the best job Mark
has: being husband to wife Rev. Jennifer and
father to his two beautiful daughters, Jasmin, 24, a fashion designer in Toronto and
Olivia, 22, a nursing student at Dalhousie.
He is a father, husband, singer, musician,
and so much more. He has truly left his
MARK! Thank you!

SCORCHED
Last week I was invited to a preview of Scorched, to be presented by the Acadia Theatre
Company November 13-16 and 20-23. I arrived at the end of a tiring day to a cold practice
room in a dingy corner of the Beveridge Arts Centre. As it was just a rehearsal, there were no
costumes and few signs of props. I was busy running over my long to-do list and, truthfully,
wondering how early I could get out.
Then the play started. Scorched plunges the audience into the middle of its storyline with
the reading of Nawal’s will to her grown twin children. The moment notary Alphonse Lebel
strode on stage, the children of his late client following behind, I was hooked. Janine and
Simon, stone-faced and furious respectively in this opening scene, learn it is their mother’s
final wish that they return to her homeland and search out their father and brother. Gradually, the siblings set out separately to
reconstruct their history. The play flashes
backwards and forwards as we follow
their harrowing journeys, the physical
settings of civil war, prison, a theatre,
hospital and International Criminal
Tribunal doubling as the thematic sites of
loss, revenge, tragedy and redemption.
As I walked slowly home from this play,
I knew my two hours should have been
spent nowhere else. The performance of
this small company had radically awakened me to the significance of identity
and heritage on a personal, local, and
global level. Through outstanding acting
from major and minor characters alike,
along with a gripping narrative, Scorched
stirred me and silenced me, provoked me
and changed me. I urge you to let it do
the same for you.

WE LOVE WOLFVILLE
We all chose to come to Acadia University
for different reasons. Intricately connected
with this university is the surrounding town,
Wolfville, our new home for 4-ish years. We
come to associate Acadia so closely with
Wolfville, and vice versa, that it's hard to
speak of what we love about one without referencing the other. I asked a few of my fellow
students what they loved about Wolfville
specifically, and the responses, quite frankly,
didn't surprise me. We love it here!
Sergio Garrido Yunes, a fourth-year business
major from Guatemala, says, “Wolfville was
my first impression of what Canada looks
like but I've got to say—I love this place like
no other!” Part of what makes this place so
special is the diversity of both students and
permanent residents and how we share our
cultures together.
Madison Doglio, a third-year math major
from Seattle and more recently Toronto,
says: “I love Wolfville mostly because of the
amazing environment, on and off campus.”
When asked about her favourite place in
Wolfville, she replied, “I love Just Us! I think
it represents Wolfville the best. It's a cute
community centre, where everyone (customers and baristas) is welcoming, warm, and
friendly.” Madison admits that the best-kept
secret of Wolfville is the Woodland Trails
off Westwood, “So beautiful and calming—a

great place to get away from stress without
going far.”
Bryn Huycke is a first-year business student
at Acadia hailing from Collingwood, Ontario. She says, “Acadia is a little treasure of a
university that so many people don't think
about enough. I know that in school in Ontario, when I told people I was coming here,
people said ‘Acadia? Why would you choose
little Acadia?’ Even being in first-year, so
many people have given me opportunities
you wouldn't get at a big school. Wolfville of
all places is the cherry on the cake.”
Adam Foster from Moncton is in his second
year of his Master’s degree in Social and
Political Thought. He says he loves how
Wolfville is a small, friendly and welcoming
community yet is also very much full of
culture.
Personally, I love Wolfville because it reminds me of my hometown, Chester. People
come together to celebrate, to have fun, but
also to look out for each other and care for
one another. I love the focus on local food
and being a strong, vibrant, caring, ethical
community.
It's amazing that we spend several years of
our young adulthood in this wonderful place.
We may leave Wolfville never to return but it
will always remain in our hearts.

Dr. Tom Raddall says Thanks a Million to Acadia
Acadia University President and Vice-Chancellor Ray Ivany recently announced the
dedication of “The Raddall Wing” in the
University’s Biology Building, in recognition
of Dr. Thomas Raddall, Class of 1957. Dr.
Raddall’s $1 million gift to establish The
Raddall Research Fund in Biology is among
the largest made by an individual to Acadia
and will greatly enhance student and faculty
research in the life sciences.
be used by the department to support purchases of equipment for use by faculty and
students. The fund will also finance student
research projects and allow for increased
participation in scientific conferences
beginning in the 2013-’14 academic year.
This most recent gift from Dr. Raddall is in
addition to scholarships and awards he had
already established to support students and
faculty in the sciences and the arts.
Dr. Randall graduated from Acadia in 1957
with a bachelor of science before earning
a D.D.S. degree from Dalhousie University
in 1961. He returned to his hometown
of Liverpool, N.S., where he established a
successful dental practice and dedicated
himself to community and professional
service. Throughout his career, he remained
a strong and loyal supporter of Acadia and
its students. Previous gifts to Acadia were
named for his mother, Edith Freeman Raddall, and father, renowned writer Thomas H.
Raddall. In 2001, Dr. Raddall joined Acadia’s Board of Governors, where he served
until 2013. His genuine interest in students
was recognized by the Acadia Students’
Union in 2004 when it chose Dr. Raddall to

ACADIA PERFORMING ARTS SERIES PRESENTS THE AMSTEL SAXOPHONE QUARTET - Saturday, November 9
The Acadia Performing Arts Series presents the Amstel Saxophone Quartet on Saturday, November 9 at 7:30pm at the Festival
Theatre, 504 Main Street at Acadia University in Wolfville. Along with music by Bach, Brahms, Ravel and Mozart, the quartet will
play contemporary pieces by several 20th-century composers, all arranged or even written for this dynamic ensemble.
The Amstel Quartet’s programmes are always surprising, uplifting, educational, innovative and swinging. Of course, the saxophone
is a young instrument and the saxophone quartet is mainly an ensemble of the 20th and 21st centuries, but Bach would take his
hat off to the Amstel Quartet if he heard them play his work. Their résumé includes performances in beautiful halls such as the
Concertgebouw in Amsterdam, the Philharmonie in Luxemburg, and Carnegie Hall in New York, and extensive tours through
Europe, Russia, the Middle East, China, Japan and the United States.
Tickets are $26 for adults, $20 for students. For more information or to buy tickets, visit the Acadia University Box Office in person,
by phone at 542-5500 or 1-800-542-TICK(8425), or online at boxoffice.acadiau.ca
“The Amstel Quartet changes even the simplest
work into a breathtaking diamond.”

Jake's Gift — West Kings District High School,
Auburn Nov. 14, 8pm • Presented by Evergreen
Theatre. Jake’s Gift is a multi-award–winning
Canadian play about a World War II veteran’s
reluctant return to Normandy, France, for
the 60th anniversary of the D-Day landings.
While revisiting the shores of Juno beach, Jake
encounters Isabelle, a precocious 10-year-old
from the local village. Isabelle’s inquisitive
nature and charm challenge the old soldier to
confront some long-ignored ghosts—most
notably the wartime death of his eldest brother,
Chester, a once-promising young musician.
At its heart, Jake’s Gift is about the legacy of
remembrance and makes personal the story
behind one soldier’s grave. See page 9 TIX: $20
