Volume 2, Issue 6 is here!

We hosted our 2nd-ever AGM on a boat!

Last Saturday nearly 2 dozen people clambered onto the Theresa E. Connor on the Lunenburg waterfront for our Annual General Meeting. The Barnacle directors put on our captain caps and shared all the info on our first full year in operation.

Between drinks and lovely appetizers from The Old Fish Factory, we got to discussing all our favourite parts of the newspaper. It was a great opportunity to hear feedback directly from our contributors and readers.

The comment we heard the most at our event was “you’re doing important work.” It’s comments like those that keep us going. As an entirely volunteer-run organization, we do this because we know it’s important. Thank you to those who came out last Saturday and shared in our first year of success!

If you didn’t make it out and are still curious about how we’re doing, you can read our AGM package here.

The best way you can show your appreciation for The Barnacle is by sharing. Tell your friends to sign up for our newsletter, circulate our Instagram posts and pass the paper around to your neighbours. And of course, you too can tell us how much you love us by sending us an email!

PS: We’re going on hiatus for July because most of our team is traveling. We will be back and rejuvenated for an August issue. Don’t miss us too much!

We love our volunteers and are so thankful that the little newspaper that could is supported by such a wide community.

If you believe in what we’re doing, the easiest way to support us is through a monthly donation. Even $3/month makes a huge difference in delivery quality, reliable news.

Become a patron!
