CAPRE to showcase Kings County entrepreneurs


KENTVILLE NS – The Community Association of People for REAL Enterprise (CAPRE) is hosting its first Artisan Craft Fair on June 2.

It will tale take place June 2 at the Kentville Fire Hall from 10 a.m. – 2 p.m. All CAPRE entrepreneurs will have a booth at the craft fair and there are a few spaces for other artisans, says Connor Sheehan.
The event will commemorate National AccessAbility Week.
Admission by donation will go towards CAPRE's mission, says executive director Kate Trevors, which is to support the realization of personal potential for individuals with intellectual disabilities.
CAPRE offers support through person-centered planning, entrepreneurship, innovation, partnerships and community engagement.
The association relocated a number of months ago to New Minas. The new headquarters, which occupies the bottom half of a house, is across from the recycling depot.
Trevors says the artisans belonging to CAPRE include: Mr. B’s Makery, Kim's Crafts, Crystal’s Pantry, Leah's Clean & Green, Genna's Cards and Calendars, Lee’s Shop and MC Shredder.
CAPRE has seven staff members. The organization was formed in 1999 by four Canning-area parents.
