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.
