“THE ROAD HERE”: A NEW BOOK THAT REVEALS THE CONTRIBUTIONS OF SENIOR WOMEN IN THEIR RURAL COMMUNITIES.
 The Women’s Place Resource Centre, with funding from New Horizons for Seniors, has combined stories from twenty-one senior women from rural areas of Annapolis, Kings and Digby counties.  The women who participated in this project spoke of their work, their contributions to their communities, their efforts to celebrate their cultures, and the journeys travelled in their immigration to Canada.   From women who worked on tanks in the Second World War, to women who established a thriving business, to senior women who lobby government, this book is sure to keep you reading.  Rachel Brighton is the editor and photographer of this book, and she captures the stories of the women and the vibrancy of the struggles and successes each woman shares. The books are available at The Women’s Place Resource Centre, and can be mailed out upon request.  The cost of the book is $10.95.  All proceeds go to the Francis Mills-Clements Bursary Fund, a scholarship fund for women who are continuing their education.  Ms. Mills-Clements shares her story in this book, and inspires the reader with her generosity and compassion.  Please contact The Women’s Place Resource Centre at 665-5166 for a copy. For more information or to schedule interviews: Rachel Brighton, Project CoordinatorTelephone: 902-665- 4538Email: This e-mail address is being protected from spam bots, you need JavaScript enabled to view it
