Important update from Laurie's Bakeshop!

With some restrictions lifting this Friday, June 5th, we know you are curious how this will change the bakeshop. At this time we are going to continue with our curbside pickup, we will also be able to take orders at the counter, with all safety precautions in place. At this time we will not be having in bakeshop dining but we will have outside tables on our deck and new lower deck (coming soon!). What we are curious about is if delivery is still an option you would like available? We are happy to continue offering it throughout the summer but we need to make sure it’s something our customers are interested in. During the past few months it has been a very busy part of our bakeshop and if you want it to continue, consider it done! Comment below and let us know 🤗. We are so grateful for all of our customers and your continued support and we look forward to continue serving you. 💕Laurie and the Bakeshop gals #lauriesbakeshop #trurobuzz #downtowntruro #deliveryyayornay #eggfree #nutfree

Great offer from HealthWalks - Podiatry Clinic & Shoe Store.

Awesome news from Lowland Gardens.

Yes we will be physically opening the greenhouses to the public, with our regular hours starting Saturday, May 2nd.
In order to do this safely and successfully so that everyone can get the plants they need – we need your help and support with the following on your visit.

We will still have the webstore available to prepay for your order for contactless parking lot pickup, and will be posting virtual tours of the retail area once it is fully set up, to help you browse and make some decisions either before you come to the greenhouse or before you make an online order.

We have always been such a social business, that the removal of the children’s areas and some of the other “extras” we normally do, is going to be difficult and sad for us – but we know that for this year it needs to be our top priority to give you a place you can safely shop for the plants you need to bring health and beauty to your homes and lives.

Thank you all for your support and understanding as we all adjust and find our way through this difficult time.

Sincerely,
Tony, Gerrie, and Michael van den Hoek

Amazing offer from Tobias Portraiture.

Purchase one Portrait Package for yourself and choose a frontline Health Care Worker or Police Officer to receive the same FREE!

So many feelings are circling as a part of our new reality – confusion, thankfulness, fear, respect and gratitude, to name a few. While struggling with all of these emotions, I am simply in my home while my business is shut down. There are many others who must be away from their families and the people they love, in order to help see us through this crisis.

It will take time before we are permitted to find the kind of togetherness that we have been used to. Until then, we will continue to strive to find ways to support each other and our communities.

We ALL know at least one Health Care Worker, Paramedic or Police Officer that is working crazy hours under stressful conditions right now. And as a Portrait Artist there’s really not much I can do to help them right now. But together, WE can give them a little something to look forward to. Something that, when all this is behind us, they can look up at over their morning coffee. Something which captures a moment in time that will bring a smile to their face. And that something is a personalized piece of Wall Art. Featuring their child or family with that special look. Or being who they are. That’s an important moment to have as a piece of happy family history.

My offer is simple. When YOU purchase one Portrait from the Heart Package we will GIFT the same Package to the Health Care Worker, Paramedic or Police Officer of your choice. Neither of you are obligated to purchase anything else (but of course I’d LOVE it if you do) and you’ll still have a beautiful archival portrait on your wall. Packages will come into effect once the social distancing restrictions allow and are good until August 31, 2021 – that’s 16 whole months to choose from! AND ONE MORE THING – you make your purchase now but make no payment until July!

I want to help. I love to help. BUT as a small business owner I do have to limit the number of these I can give away. That number is 20. It’s simple economics and my business has been closed since Mid-March and it looks like at least another 6-8 weeks at least before I can reopen. So purchase your Portraits from the Heart Package today before they are all gone.

Remembering to find gratitude in simple things, planning for better times and looking for the silver linings are ways that we can keep lifting each other up. That is my hope for this offer. For those who were already feeling it might be time for a new portrait this is an opportunity to receive a great value for your own family. PLUS give a gift with an emotional value that only increases with time, to someone who could surely benefit from lifted spirits. This Portrait from the Heart Package has a regular value of $697 but the Super Special Price is only $398 and includes: Session Fee, Small Canvas Wall Portrait, Digital Copy -printable up to 8″ x 10″

It can be a single child, all your children or your beautiful, close-knit family. It can be in our new studio or it can be on-location. You and your recipient have many choices. As part of my regular service we will have a Design Meeting in-person or by phone or Zoom for each and every session so we plan out the most fantastic session possible!


Amazing story from the Sid Sells Signs.

Colchester East Hants Hospice Society reached out to us to help in printing a booklet teaching children how to deal with grief. It is very important for our young ones to learn to deal with complex emotions they may not have experienced at this early stage of their lives.

We were very touched by their message and decided to donate these to their organization in the hopes that will give some relief to those effected by the tragedy our community experienced.

 


Great news from the Double C Truck Stop.

No toupee ham. No boiled or poached eggs. No baked haddock. No Caesar salad. No DESSERTS. We think that’s it. If it changes we will let you know.

We will only have one cook and one waitress on so we will be doing our best and try to work our way around this learning curve. If we do well and we are busy we will extend our days. Right now we are Monday to Friday 10:30 to 6:30.

Our menu is under photos under album “menu 2019”.

Important update from the Red Woof Inn.

We are still open full time, but are not taking on any new clients at this time. Or main focus is supporting or front line worker clients at this time. We have been asking anyone not working or working from home, not to bring their dogs. We have suspended boarding operations unless we are asked to take in a dog for anyone who is hospitalized for any reason. We have implemented full curbside pick up and drop off protocols. Dogs are also wiped down with Chlorhexidine each time they come into the daycare to prevent any potential fomite transfer within the daycare.

Cheers!

Important information from the Town of Truro.

COVID-19 + Sewers

The Town of Truro is currently experiencing a higher than normal number of plugged sewers and plugged sewer pumps.

To avoid a sewage back-up don’t treat your toilet like a trash can.

Flushable wipes are NOT flushable, they are disposable and belong in the trash can, not in your toilet.

Awesome opportunity from NovelTea Bookstore Cafe.

 

‘Thank-You’ Coffee Breaks
In these challenging times, many people are isolating themselves at home. But some in our community are serving in ‘essential’ roles that are keeping necessary goods and services available to all.  It has been suggested, that NovelTea could help facilitate a way of saying ‘thank-you’ to these workplaces that continue to serve by setting up ‘Thank-You’ Coffee Breaks.
If you or your organization would like to sponsor a ‘Thank-You’ Coffee Break for an essential service workplace, NovelTea will provide that connection on your behalf. NovelTea will deliver fresh, NS roasted coffee, freshly prepared treats, and a thank-you card with your name or organizations name on it.
If you have a particular workplace in mind, let us know.  NovelTea or the donor will need to coordinate details to facilitate an organized and safe delivery.  If you wish to donate to this program but don’t have a particular group in mind… NovelTea will be making some contacts with various essential workplaces as well, and will make a connection on your behalf.
Cost Guidelines – approximately $5 per person.
$25 – provides a ’Thank-You’ Coffee Break for a team of 5-6 individuals.
