A Vegan Supper Party

We are delighted to announce an opportunity to meet Sydney Humble and Dylan Nickolet and to sample their culinary creations…

Both from Saskatoon, the young couple are avid explorers who spent last winter travelling the world.  This year they have chosen to travel around their own country and drove here at the beginning of the month in order to spend a few months in Parrsboro before going to Montreal where Sydney will be commencing a program of study at Concordia University in January.  A visual artist, Dylan is making good use fo his time here to draw and create every day. He has also worked several years in kitchens and loves creating and cooking wholesome food for himself and loved ones.

Join us on Sunday 22 October at 5pm in the Nonesuch Café.

The cost is $12 per person and reservations are required.  You can reserve by email at or by telephone at 514-979-3978.

A group of concerned Parrsboro citizens have formed a committee named “Parrsboro Welcomes Refugees”.  We will be privately sponsoring a refugee family of four.  Our family will have been previously screened by UNHCR (United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees) and the Government of Canada.  Most people are both well informed and aware of the stressful situation in the Middle East and Syria.  The Federal Government has promised to accept 25,000 Syrian refugees by the end of this year.  We are eager to assist in reaching this goal.

Canada is the only country in the world to allow private sponsorship.  Sponsoring a refugee family is a concrete way to respond to the biggest humanitarian crisis since World War II.  The Federal Government’s Department of Citizenship and Immigration Canada, and the organization Immigration Services Association of Nova Scotia (ISANS), assume overall responsibility and liability for the management of sponsorship.  Our committee will be working closely and jointly with ISANS.

Citizenship and Immigration Canada will be responsible for a rigorous security screening.  Our group is responsible for housing, food, clothing, local transportation and other basic necessities of life for the first year.  By then they are assumed to be basically independent.

Keep an eye on both the fundraiser page and our Facebook page ( for more information about refugees and other groups working to help these desperate families and children!

We have set up an online fundraiser under and to date we have raised over $7,000.  If you have questions, do not hesitate to contact us.  We would be happy to respond to your questions or concerns.  Tax receipts will be issued by ISANS in the year 2016 for all financial donations over $20.

Please open your hearts and be willing to help.
