[Bible Hill, NS] - The board of directors for the Nova Scotia Provincial Exhibition (NSPE) has two new faces after last week's (June 11) annual general meeting.
Joel Henderson, who was appointed to fill the Town of Truro seat until its vacancy is decided upon, was re-elected chairman of the board.
Two other seats were filled during the meeting with Eonomy's Don Conrod and Truro's Brian Phelan both being nominated and acclaimed.
"Don has been very involved with 4-H over the last few years and Brian is a local businessman," said Henderson.
With the introduction of a private bill, the NSPE Act was amended to increase the number of board of director seats from nine to 10 - three of which were to be reserved for each level of municipal government involved with the exhibition (Colchester County, Village of Bible Hill and Town of Truro).
The county appointed Mayor Bob Taylor and village chairman Tom Burke will also take a seat.
"In regards to the town (of Truro) seat, the board elected me to represent it until the town decides to fill the seat," Hendeson said.
Following the annual general meeting, the board elected Henderson as the chair.
Conrod and Phelan will join current board members David Clark, Laurie Jennings, Fred Hamilton, Jack Ferguson and Steve Karrel.
