The Black Culture Centre for Nova Scotia and African Nova Scotian Affairs we are pleased to introduce the Tri-Community Newsletter.

This project is to try and bring about a deeper understanding about what is going on in the communities of Lake Loon – Cherry Brook, North Preston and East Preston.

We think a newsletter of this type is a good way to share information, tell OUR stories and be a way for us to start talking among ourselves.

The next addition will come out the first week of June and will be available at various locations listed below as well as online at

We are asking you to please share information or a story idea with Miranda Cain at 902-809-4164 or We really want this newsletter to be of the people and by the people, and with your support we hope that this can be an important tool for sharing information between the communities. It is also our desire that this project be a model for similar newsletters in other African Nova Scotian communities in the province.

Thank you for helping us with this project and enjoy the newsletter.
