Happy Birthday Nip Hillier



cbhopper copy Lower Half Section of North River Falls


All members of the Cape Breton Island Hoppers and Friends:

From the Family of Howard "Nip Hillier"

You are all invited to attend Nips 80th birthday party.

2-4 pm, Saturday 5 April 2008

St Giles Presbyterian Church

49 Campbell Ext., North Sydney, NS

Nip is involved in several organizations and it maybe appropriate for his walking friends to wear a club t-shirt, sweater, jacket anything you want to distinguish us from his many other friends.

For our newest members who may not be aware, Nip is one of our founding members.

It is a rare occasion that Nip has missed any of our guided walks throughout the years.

Special Note: NIP lead the walk in North Sydney today Sunday 30 March 2008. 30 members of the Island Hoppers came out to walk on this cloudy cool day for a 10k walk around the community.

Nip was one of the original walkers in our first event 1997 and was one of 16 walkers who showed up for our first event of 2008.

Shhh!!! This is a surprise party.
