Tri-County Vanguard - - Wheels - SARA ERICSSON KATHY JOHN­SON TINA COMEAU

Mem­bers of the Bar­ring­ton Mu­nic­i­pal High School’s Class of 2018 pass by one of the dec­o­rated lob­sters that were put on dis­play through­out the Mu­nic­i­pal­ity of Bar­ring­ton. This one had been cre­ated by stu­dents at the school. Run­ners in the an­nual Nova Sco­tia Marathon held in the Mu­nic­i­pal­ity of Bar­ring­ton on July 22 cel­e­brate cross­ing the 10K fin­ish line. A field of 60 run­ners (in­clud­ing one sled dog) took part in the full marathon, 90 run­ners ran the half marathon and the 10K drew the largest field with 98 run­ners com­plet­ing the course. Brad Bar­ton, Kerry John­son, West Nova MP Colin Fraser, African Nova Sco­tian Af­fairs min­is­ter Tony Ince and Clare-Digby MLA Gor­don Wil­son stand to­gether and for­mally give the green­light to the com­mu­nity cen­tre project dur­ing an event held on Nov. 30. It’s been four decades in the mak­ing, but the Jor­dan­town-Aca­ci­av­ille-Con­way Bet­ter­ment As­so­ci­a­tion Com­mu­nity Cen­tre is now a go. Young and old. Veter­ans are seated at the Mariners Cen­tre in Yar­mouth on Nov. 11 as mem­bers of the Yar­mouth Jr. A Mariners team wait to place wreaths dur­ing the an­nual Le­gion Branch 61 Re­mem­brance Day cer­e­mony. The Sea Quiz lob­ster ves­sel steams away from the wharf in Pinkney’s Point, Yar­mouth County, as the lob­ster sea­son in south­west­ern Nova Sco­tia got off to a de­layed start due to the weather. The sea­son that should have started on Mon­day, Nov. 26 in­stead got un­der­way on Satur­day, Dec. 1. There was an­other colour­ful and large dis­play of sup­port as a Pride Pa­rade was held in Yar­mouth for the sec­ond year in a row. The in­ten­tion of the pa­rade is to pro­mote ac­cep­tance and aware­ness for the LGBTQ+ com­mu­nity, and to cre­ate and pro­mote a safe en­vi­ron­ment for ev­ery­one. Stan Atwell of the com­pany Any­thing and Ev­ery­thing De­mo­li­tion and Re­cy­cling stands in­side what is left of the for­mer Holy Cross Ro­man Catholic Church in Plymp­ton, Digby County in early De­cem­ber. The church, which held its last ser­vice in 2014 af­ter clos­ing the year be­fore, is be­ing de­mol­ished and Atwell’s com­pany is do­ing the work by hand, in or­der to di­vert a large seg­ment of it away from the land­fill.
