Sam Madore operates as Bliss Productions . When she moved back to Truro from Halifax (gasp) seven years ago, she did not fully embrace her transition.
It wasn't until she realized that it's up to her to help create the community she wants to live in that she truly came to appreciate all that Truro has to offer. Sam has since founded the Women's Social Network, co-founded the Showcase Truro Film Festival and participated on several local committees, including CMHA's Women & Wellness, the host committee for Nova Scotia Music Week and, most recently, the brand leadership committee for the Town of Truro.
The Local Love Truro Awards will be a celebration you won't want to miss!
Michelle McCann owns Bold and Italic Social Communications. While she grew up in the Truro area, it took a while for it to feel like home when she returned in 2010, after a dozen years in Halifax.
By the time she chose to start her own business here three years ago, she had grown to appreciate the perks of small town living. She is constantly inspired by the vibrancy and creativity of other local business people, and Truro's community spirit. Michelle sits on the board of Central Nova Women's Resource Centre and Cobequid Arts Council, and helped bring the Grown-up Prom to life in 2015 ... if only for an excuse to wear her prom dress again!
She promises no taffeta will be worn at Local Love Truro.
