2018: A look back
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.
