A clock for town hall
Annapolis Royal couple celebrates 50 years in Canada by donating giant timepiece
Two of Annapolis Royal’s most well-known residents love the province’s tiniest town so much they’re donating a giant clock.
While Valerie and Peter Davies are receiving lots of financial support from locals, they originated and are spearheading the project that celebrates their love of their adopted home and a deep appreciation for everything Canada has given them.
And, as Peter says, “an historic town needs a clock.”
“It’s the centre of our universe, it really is,” says Peter as he talks about the historic town. “It has everything that we as a family have ever wanted. The town has been very receptive to us and it’s enabled us to do things we would likely never have done.”
Peter and Valerie Davies are celebrating their own Canadian birthday this year. While the nation celebrates Canada 150, the Annapolis Royal couple is celebrating Canada 50 – they immigrated here on May 6, 1967 and have lived in Annapolis Royal for 27 years. They wanted to give something back to their adopted town and decided on a three-foot-diametre clock for town hall’s clock tower.
