MacInnis Trail Opens Final Stage

Wed Jul 30, 4:52 PM

Today was a VERY Exciting Day for the MacInnis Trail – after 5 years of hard work by the Shubenacadie Community Development Association along with its name sake Dr. Ross & Madeline MacInnis this 2.2 km trail is complete.  Dr. MacInnis stepped up to the plate to provide land for the trail along with other landowners that allowed the trail to cross their lands.
Many of the MacInnis family, community volunteers, groups and organizations along with local Politicians were in attendance to celebrate this event.
Pam MacInnis Welcomed all of the guests and introduced the speakers

  • MP Scott Brison – brought greetings from the Federal Government – he shared about walking the trail when it first open with his trusted friend Simba – he talked about being a new Dad of twin girls that will enjoy this type of outdoor adventure – the opportunity to simply go out and play
  • MLA Margaret Miller – brought greetings from the Province – she talked about growing up in the Village and the importance of Volunteers and Community groups coming together with Government to make a project like this happen
  • East Hants Municipality – was represented by Counsellor Albert Fleming
  • Les Jayasinghe – was President of the Association during the early years of the project – he took a lead role in going after the funding and community support – he also gave special thanks to George Searle for his leadership and hard work in the design, engineering and planning of the project – he thanked the Lions Club for their support and efforts

This was a truly community project bringing together groups, volunteers, business support and the three levels of Government to make it happen.
As a Village we can be very proud of this wonderful asset in our community and thankful for the hard work and kind donation that made it happen.  Take your family for a walk we can guarantee you will enjoy it.
Thanks once again to Dr. MacInnis and his family…

A GREAT Hay Days / Canada Day Event - THANKS

Mon Jul 07, 4:47 PM

Wow what a great Hay Days / Canada Day we had here in Shubie.  It has taken a few days to catch our breath and then Arthur came to visit as well.

There were many highlights of the day - kicking off wiht Breakfast at the Legion the Lions and Legion group did a great job as usual.  The park set up this year was headed up by Richard Ashton and did he ever do a great job.  There was great attendance and lots of things for people to enjoy and do. Some added features down there this year.

The Parade was well done and our Town Cryer Anita Benedict was amazing walking and crying - I mean Town Crying in two parades in that heat - then she helped out with the opening exercises as well.  The Classic Car Show headed up by Alan MacLeod was a big hit again this year and drew some wonderful cars from around the region.  The United Church put on  a great BBQ and their famous Strawberry Shortcake.  Good job folks.

The Tin Shop Museum wiht Marilyn Doucette who was also the honorary parade Marshall this year - had some fun things for visitors there as well.

We introduced the Shubie River Rubber Duck Race for the first time this year - Keith & Leanne Julian coordinated the River activities to keep the ducks on track and catch them as they crossed the finish line.  This Year Keith helped coordinated Indian Brooks participation in a number of the activities and that was very special including Chief Rufus Copage bringing greetings and the opening ceromonies. 

Heritage Baptist did a great job with their Kids Carnival and they had great participation.  Neil & Christine Barr were involved in so many components including the Cold Plate Dinner, Sound System and for the band as well as Christine being Chair of the whole event.  Thank you to both of them.

The Concert wiht 10 - 2 - Midnight was  a bifg hit again with about 800 attending by the time we got to the second half.  The Fire Works were absolutely GREAT - Wayne Green and the Shubie Fire Brigade did a great job again.

 

We need to thank the 100+ volunteers and the almost 40 businesses that supported this great event...
