News and updates - June 15, 2024

CAR SHOW UPDATE: The CAR SHOW is moved to the RAIN DATE of Father’s Day - Sunday, June 16 from 12 -4 at CMP -Charlottetown Metal Products at 2744 North York River Road in Milton Station. Parking will be available at the Direct Nutrisciences building across the road. The Winsloe Lions Club is no longer able to host the BBQ, so we are hoping to find either another service group or a team which may be fundraising for their cause to BBQ (hamburgers), or else, some individuals who would be interested in BBQing (in that case the donations would go towards the food bank, which is where all the profits are going).  The North Rustico Food Market (Clover Farm) have generously donated the food and beverages for the canteen, and will deliver them to the site on Sunday morning. If you are interested in this last-minute opportunity – please contact Shari at 902-368-3090 or

If you would like to help us spread the word on social media that the date has been changed – the Facebook link for it is here:

Their fiery talent is only surpassed by the joy they exude in performance as the two bounce between guitar, piano, fiddle, singing and stepping. It’s another legendary Small Halls mixer in Milton!
