WhyHere? is a regional marketing project by the LQRDA that we’ve been working on for a few months now – The Picture House, along with Boost Media in Bridgewater, is producing videos of people who have chosen to live and/or work in this area and looking at their reasons why.
Kevin and Debbie are friends of ours, and are some of the most enthusiastic people we know! They have boundless energy and give so many hours to the community in many capacities. Whether it be organizing, booking and running the music festival part of Privateer Days, being members of the board for the Queens Association for Supported Living, chairing the host committee for Nova Scotia Music Week 2012, volunteering at the Astor Theatre – if there’s something going on in the community Kevin and Debbie will likely be involved! They are recent returners to this area – both grew up in Liverpool, but moved away to other parts of the Province for most of their working lives. A few years ago they made the decision to leave the city and move to somewhere that they could have the work-life balance that they wanted. Kevin and Debbie truly make the most of where we are – they work hard, but make sure that they pack their time with leisure activities and community events. Watch this video to see why Kevin and Debbie love this area so much and what brought them back here for good.
The music in this video is provided by Andrew Hunter and The Gatherers, based out of Halifax, and the band that Kevin and Debbie’s son Bryan drums for. Thanks for letting us use it!
