Remembering Jim St. Clair: A Time of Joy

The family of Jim St. Clair and the board and staff of the Nova Scotia Highland Village Society invite you to join us for a celebration of Jim's life, featuring all the things he loved so dearly: stories, music, food, friends, and family.

It's been more than a year since Jim passed away, and we miss him every day. He was a beloved teacher, mentor, naturalist, storyteller, columnist and radio voice, community leader, historian, uncle, brother and friend. His boundless energy, curiosity and caring touched and influenced the lives of all around him.

We hope you can join us. Please let us know you're coming by RSVPing using the form, e-mail address or telephone number below, so we're sure we have enough oatcakes (and other goodies) on hand! The event will also be streamed and recorded; for those not able to attend in person, please select "I will attend online" when you RSVP below.
