THINGS TO ON line
Amherst’s free icetime pilot project is generating a lot of attention not only in Nova Scotia, but also across North America. The town implemented the project to increase physical fitness levels among young people and to increase use of the Amherst Stadium. To date, the stadium’s use is up 12 to 15 hours per week. Cumberland-Colchester MP Bill Casey announced more than $90,000 in infrastructure funding for three community projects on Monday. The largest is a $70,000 contribution to the Cumberland Snowmobile Club to support upgrades to its trail system. Funding was also announced for Branch 10 of the Royal Canadian Legion in Amherst and the Oxford Lions Club.
