The year in review
The past year brought cause for celebration and, for some, great loss. Today we look back at the images that de ned 2018.
RICHARD GRAY/ WORLD CURLING FEDERATION It was a big-time celebration for Lindsey Burgess of Truro and her cousin Karlee Burgess of Hilden after their team won gold with skip Kaitlyn Jones at the World Junior Women's Curling championships last March in Aberdeen, Scotland. Seen celebrating with their cup are, from left, coach Andrew Atherton, alternate Lauren Lenentine,lead Lindsey Burgess, second Karlee Burgess, third Kristin Clarke and skip Kaitlyn Jones.
During his 39 years of caring for animals at the Shubenacadie Provincial Wildlife Park, Bert Vissers got to know many of the various species but the moose came to be his favourite, in part because of their personalities and gangly appearance. Vissers officially retired as park manager at the end of March.
After almost 29 years of operating out of the People's Church on Elm Street, the Colchester Christian Academy moved into larger, newly refurbished quarters in March when it took over the former East Court Elementary school in Bible Hill. Teachers and students alike were excited about the move. Above, teacher Pauline Mackinnon is seen looking through some of the books in the K4-to-k5 classroom with students Owen Mcleod and Madelyn Miller. Many volunteer hours went into the school’s refurbishment.
