These are Crazy Times - Time to Check on our Neighbours

Thu Mar 19, 9:25 AM

It has hard to imagine how our lives have been turned upside down in just a few weeks.  With no idea when it will all come to an end. Jobs are being affected, services, closures of almost everything.

We are so appreciative of all those that are still working - medical teams - fire - police - Pharmacies - Grocery Stores - Hardware - fuel - Tims... to name a few.  Thank you for putting yourself out there to serve.

What about Your Neighbours

We would like to encourage you to check on your neighbours to see if they are OK.  Do they need anything.  Do they need someone to talk to and assure them life will return to normal.

Please make the effort to make sure everyone is safe.

If you know someone that needs help and are unable to help them - please let us know - maybe we can help

Be Safe and know that life as we know it will return...

You will see some very exciting work going on at the SHUBIE RIVER PAK this week.

Car Moore Excavating and his team are doing an amazging job to get the drainage issues we have had for years fixed.  Some time ago with the help of Halifax C&D we creating a large French Drain across the bottom of the park by the river.  It catches the over flow water from the river then releases it back to the river through an Aboteau.

Now they are working on the rest of the park and ball field to get them to also drain properly down to that drain and into the river.  It will be amazing to get things back to where they provide for a usable space along our beautiful river front.

There are several other interesting upgrades with new playground equipment - possible splash pad - other interesting pieces over the next couple of years.

Please honour the PARK & PLAYGROUND CLOSED - signs and keep your children away for the next few days.  We want them all to be safe.

If you have questions you can call Ged 902-758-4444

Recommendation - Keep Both Schools OPen

Fri Feb 24, 2:20 AM

The final of the three information sessions on the future of our elementary schools - Maple Ridge and Shubenacdie Elementary Schools.  There was a good crowd in attendance to here the recommendations of the committee.  There were three information sessions and the committee really listened to the community and their commnents and recommentations.

There was much infomration gathered - Updated population information - Projected development to the corridor area - Input from the Chamber of Commerce - discussions with developers.  The announcement of the new exchange at Lantz will advance the development in the area significantly. 

There is the expectation that Shubenacadie will have some new growth over the next few years as well.

The committee has recommended that both schools remain open and swome re-distribution of the schools be completed.

It was welcome news to all those that attended - the 2,000+ people that signed the petitions.

The recommendation will be finalized and submitted in mid-March. 

We need to give a BIG thank you to the committee - the many volunteeres that worked so hard to help build the case for both schools....

Wow and now it just won't stop.  The snow seems to have stopped but the wind is still a blowing...


  • NS Power for keeping is in the light - when it went off was only a couple of hours
  • Nova Scotia Snow Plow operators and your tireless hours
  • Those local Snow Plows that have been working around the clock - you are appreciated especially these days
  • Thanks to neighbours that have been looking out for each other
  • The Businesses that are getting back open to serve us - Foodland for letting us sneak in after the wire Sunday evening

Take a little time today and show a little love to those around you...

Shubenacadie Trading Post - Grand Opening

Tue Aug 16, 10:11 AM

New Shubie Shop Caters to Outdoor Enthusiasts
Shubenacadie, Nova Scotia (Wednesday, August 10, 2016) -- At a time when the words now or never are regularly heard or read in the media and the province's Ivany report is calling for a 50 percent increase in business start-ups, it is a welcome sight when a new business opens in rural Nova Scotia.
Owners John MacIntyre and Andrew Buffett recently transformed a long-standing drugstore into two retail spaces. They made room for their new Shubenacadie Trading Post on the main street of this farming village about 60 kilometers from Halifax and 30 kilometers from Truro. The pair are part of the ownership group Associated Maritime Pharmacies who have been in the pharmacy business in both Nova Scotia and New Brunswick for decades.
Business closures are becoming common in Nova Scotia, especially in rural parts of the province. So it's a bit of a novelty to see people from a small village buzzing about a new store.
"The reaction we have been getting is overwhelming, there has been nothing but positive feedback," says local resident and manager Debbie Sexsmith. "People from the community are very excited. The first day we opened, a local lady came in and bought a jacket saying normally, she would have to go to Halifax or Dartmouth for this."
The Shubie Trading Post is serving outdoor enthusiasts, tourists and the local community with seasonal apparel and footwear, camping and hiking supplies and well-known brands. It is a natural fit for this community with a rich heritage in farming, the well-known Shubenacadie River and neighbouring Sipekne'katik First Nation.
The new store will host a grand opening with sales on well-recognized brands, contests, product demonstrations and fun activities on Saturday, August 20 from 9am to 5pm. The local Lions Club will offer a barbecue with proceeds going to their projects.
Shubenacadie's landscape, natural surroundings and wildlife provide a source of livelihood and enjoyment for the rural dwellers. And lately, more weekend explorers from the city have been venturing there as well. Motor heads come to the nearby Atlantic Motorsport Park as well as hikers, kayakers and a rising number of tourists try out nature's rollercoaster ride, otherwise known as tidal bore rafting. The Shubenacadie Wildlife Park is always a draw for families and lately, Pokémon Go'ers have been busy searching for the more than 20 stops in around the Park and village.
Locals and visitors alike enjoy the new cafe´ with trendy, organic coffee from Lunenburg and ice cream that a local dairy farmer most likely had a hand in producing. The Trading Post supports Maritime artisans and crafters by providing a convenient location for handmade trinkets, treasures, lotions and potions.
"As pharmacy retailers, we are charting some new territory here, " says Andrew Buffett. "It's been a lot of hard work getting things up and running and we tried to engage the staff as well as neighbouring businesses and Sipekne'katik in our planning and product offerings. It's been satisfying to see the local community embrace the Shubie Trading Post and we hope to grow that excitement beyond the area."
Typically, when you head out to Shubenacadie, green pastures speckled with dairy cows, red and white silos next to sturdy-looking barns rise up on either side of you. Glimpses of the historic river and its rich reddish brown banks come in to view and somehow, the sky seems bluer. Now, when you end up on the main street in the small village, dotted on either side with the typical post office, bank, drugstore and doctors' office, that's where you will find something new - The Shubenacadie Trading Post.

Wed Oct 21, 1:01 PM

There is an IMPORTANT COMMUNITY MEETING - to be held on Tuesday October 27 at 7:00pm at the Shubie Legion.

This meeting is to talk about the need for GROWTH in the Village of Shubenacadie.  We have had almost no growth in the Village over the past 10 years.  This is becoming a very real issue for us as it is now starting to impact our ability to sustain life in our community - Churches - Schools - Businesses - Community Clubs and Organizations - Sporting Groups are all being challenged to survive.

We are at a strategic time that we have to decide if as a community we are going to not only support but fight for new growth for Shubenacadie... There is an interesting opportunity right now with the release of Snide's Lake from its protected water service designation.  We are hosting this meeting on Tuesday to bring together the comunity to look at some interesting options.

Creating an Active Lifestyle Community around Snide's Lake - taking advantage of the attraction of the lake - create trails - water front activities - other recreational things as well - there is nothing like this in the Enfield Truro Corridor.

  • Seniors or 50+ Lifestyle Community on one side of the lake - Single Family - Duplex - Town home units - all with Maintenance Free Living - Social Centre - Recreation
  • Family Active Lifestyle Community on the other side closest to the highway geared to families - very nice single family - duplex uinits - with water front activity - recreation as well

This could be a GREAT opportunity for Shubenacadie to reverse the declining population.

Come out on Tuesday - Bring along your ideas and suggestions - hear some of the ideas

Call for more information or if you have questions - Ged at 902-758-4444

Notice the creative Canadian and Nova Scotia Flags graphics on the one side.  Great to see them get the equipment they need to be better take care of our community.

If you woul be interested in hearing more about becoming a volunteer they would love to hear from you - call 902-758-2222.

The MacInnis Barns GONE…. Wow in one day

Wed Apr 01, 8:12 PM

The landscape in Shubie has changed a little today.  No not just the melting of the mounds of snow.  The large green MacInnis Barn was leveled today.  There was a concern that with it so old and dry that if it ever started on fire it could cause a disaster.  In chatting with Pam MacInnis today she said the contractor Carl told her he was going to start the demolition today.  She drove over after work and was VERY surprised at what she saw or didn't see.  Both barns were leveled and mostly cleaned up.  Here are a few photos of before and after.  Dr. Ross and Madelline MacInnis have been such an important part of our community for so many years.

Take a look as you drive by over the next week or so - or when you drop in the Village Bakery (re-opening again Tuesday) - or visit the MacInnis Trail.




“SPRING” Where? - Oh at the Tin Shop Museum

Mon Mar 23, 9:34 PM

Have you driven by the Tin Shop Museum in the last few days.  They have put up a lovely Spring Display... Curator and Manager Marilyn Doucette has done a great job to bring a little levity to the Village.  Great job...

See the Pictures below.

Hard to imagine but they will be getting ready to open the Tin Shop Museum and Craft Shop in the next 45 - 60 days.  They have a wide variety of arts and crafts from local artisans that will be enjoyed by all that visit.

The Museum itself really showcases the History of Shubenacadie and many of the people that made our special Village.  It is well worth the visit and when you have guests visiting take them down for a look.

Snides Lake Property - a real Growth Opporunity

Wed Feb 11, 1:48 AM

The Municipality has decided that the protection of Snides Lake for the Villages water supply is no longer required so they have asked the URB to allow them to remove the designation.

An Opportunity for Growth for Shubenacadie

The Village is been stalled for growth for some time now.  The lack of any additional capacity for water and sewage was an issue.  Now the water supply is excellent and there is lots of capacity.  On the sewage side there are opportunities with new systems that will allow for on-site smaller systems for new development.

The Municipality owns 100 acres around and including Snide's Lake.  It would be an ideal place to create an "Active Lifestyle Village" around the lake.  I would allow the community to freshen up the lake and make it a great recreational lake with canoes, kayaks and paddle boats. 

The idea would be to create a designed community with possibly one side of the lake as 50+ Residences - single family, duplex and townhomes - possibly 50 - 60 units - with that part create a social Centre gathering place, lawn sports, deck by the lake, fire pit maybe an Amphitheatre. On the other side of the lake create a Family Village with mainly single family homes.  Play park area, walking, jogging, biking trails around the property.  Again with 50 - 60 homes.

There is Municipal water supply right there and we could build an on-site sewage system to handle the development.

Feature Attraction Development   

To attract new residents to the Village we need an Attraction Development and Snides Lake is ideal - close to the down town - close to the Hwy 102 - the natural beauty of the lake from Village.  It is also ideal for the 50+ Development to allow our seniors to have a nice place in a wonderful setting around the lake right here in Shubie.  We have sent a presentation to the Municipality asking them to consider this type of development for the Snides Lake property.

What do You Think

Tell us what you think, your ideas and suggestions.  Would you be in favour of a project like this.  What would you like to see included.  What would you like to see different.

It is still in the early stages and we need to encourage Council to support the Village in this.

Shubenacadie Remembers

Wed Nov 12, 10:15 PM

November 11, 2014 Remembrance Day - was a very special day in Shubenacadie as it was across our country.  With the recent loss of two young Military Men in acts of terrorism we were all even more impacted than normally for this commemoration. 

It was a perfect day with +12 degrees and a wonderful crowd of about 500 filling the Main Street.

The honour guard parade lead the Community as they marched down Main Street to the Cenotaphe.  Several organizations - Legion - RCMP - Cubs, Scouts, Brownies, Cadets and a number of others walked and carried flags.  The Hants East Rural High Band was a very nice addition this year for the music.  The United Church Choir lead in the singing.  Comrade Bob Smith on be half of the Legion lead the Ceromonies - Pastor Martin Reid brought a thoughtful meditation and lead in prayer.

The Honour Roll was read

  • WWI
     - Forest Benner - Buy Brown - William Courtney - William Dodd - William Duff - Blanchard Gass - James Graham - Thomas Irving - Wilbert Larabee - Peter Maloney - Cleveland MacCabe - Walter MacKenzie - James Noble - Arthur Pentz - George Robinson - John Smith - James Sutherland - Haliburton Wallace - Reginald WIle
  • WWII - Arthur Brimicombe - Leo Cope - Allen Nelson - William Robb - Arthur Taylor
  • Mic Mac Veterans - Louie Isaac Brooks - William "Billy" Copage - James Alexander Gehue - Pter Maloney

After the two minutes of silence a young lady name Romi recited In Flanders Fields -  she did an excellent job.

Wreaths were placed on behalf of families, groups, organizations and businesses.  There must have been more than 40 of them.

We would also like to express our thanks and appreciation to our living Veterans as well as those in active duty.  Thanks also to the Fire Department and the RCMP for keeping the Ceromonies safe.

Growing Our Village

Sun Nov 02, 1:49 PM

Rural Communities are Challenged

In most regions of our country Rural Communitioes are struggling with the ability to maintain their population or attract new residents.  The Youth are moving away to find jobs and seniors are moving to larger areas that can provide the housing and services they need.

Shubenacadie is no different

The reality for Shubie is that we need to attract about 100 new homes over the next 4 - 5 years to be sustainable.  It will breathe new life into our community. Re-invigorate the business community - our school - churches - Legion as well as our social and recreation programs.

Looking at Development in Shubie

Development has been stalled for quite a number of years - there is limited space for development - until recently water was an issue but that has been solved and we now have very good water - sewage is a problem as our Village system is old, tired and at capacity - also there are no lands with the "Attraction Feature" that would excite people to want choose our Village - until now...

The Sewage Challenge

The Municipality has told us it will cost $4 - $5 million to replace the current system - this is an impossiblity for a Village our size.  There are new and interesting alternatives.  Smaller new technology systems that would provide service to 100 - 125 homes for a cost in the area of $300,000 - $400,000.  This would make sense for a new development.  The challenge is that we need a large enough development to justify even thsi expenditure.  The Development will pay for it so need that 100 - 125 homes. 

Target Markets

There are two key areazs of need in the Village - 50+ or Seniors Housing - Townhomes -- Duplex Units - smaller Bungalows - people wanted to downsize - have a nice home in their community - with full Maintenance Free Living - some with ownership and some rental units. 

The second group is single family homes again with a variety of sizes and costs - providing some new home options in the Village.

What's the Attraction

We know already to simply build a subdivision on a parcel of land in or around the community is not going to attract outsiders from HRM or the Corridor area to consider Shubenacadie.  Shubie needs an attraction - to build the development around - Golf Course - River Front - Lake Front - with  Active Lifestyle Options - something that would make the home buyers to choose our Village.

Could it be Snide's Lake

The Municpality owns 100 acres including and round Snide's Lake that was the water supply for the Village.  The are now looking at options for that property.  It could be an ideal "Attraction Property" - a reason for people to choose to move to Shubenacadie -  Close to the Exit off Hwy 102 - beautiful rural lake front setting - next to a great Village Business community - what a great place for a family to have for their children to grow up in - schools - churches - recreation....

It will be important to protect the lake for all residents to enjoy and use - will need to be nursed back to better health as a lake - would recommend it remain in the ownership of the Municipality - with a 10 - 15 meter buffer around it - create walking / jogging / biking trails - docks to launch canoes / kayaks / paddle boats.  A new development would be able to provide the resources to create this type of park like development - pay for upgrades as well as ongoing maintenance with a significant amounf of new tax revenue.  Would expect it would generate $250,000 - $350,000 in Municipal taxes.

Plan East Hants Process

The Municipality is going through a planning process at this time.  We as a community need to speak strongly to thios process sharing that we as a Village need to grow.  We need to let them know are ready to support this kind of growth.  They are also working through a process to decide what to do with Snide's Lake - we need to share with them that it is likely one of the best opportunities for the Village to Grow - a wonderful Attraction Property - with the size and capacity to attract that 100 - 125 new homes.

You Can Help

We need to get as many residents in the community as possible to suport this concept to allow our Village to Grow - send us an email of your support ( or sign one of the documents in stores in the Village.

Have your voice... do you agree with the idea.  Provide your suggestions

We must take action now - or we will be challenged to - keep our school - our churches - the Legion - the wonderful businesses we have in the Village.

Dr. Ross MacInnis Had a Major Impact on the Village of Shubenacadie

Mon Oct 20, 10:16 AM

On October 11th Shubenacadie lost one of its Patriarchs - Dr. Ross MacInnis. 

He was passionate about his community and the people in it.  His actions over the years tells this story, making house calls long after most doctors had stopped - the health care he provided to the Village as a Medical Doctor.  When we were celebrating Olympic Athlete Tracy Cameron - Doc MacInnis (as he was affectionatley known) in his greetings shared that he was the very first person to every see Tracy. 

Dr. MacInnis worked as a Municipal Councilor and was the driving force behind Shubenacadie being one of the first smaller communities in the area to get Water and Sewage.  He sat on many boards including School Board as well as others.  He was one of the founding members and leaders on the creation and development of the Tin Shop Museum in Shubenacadie.  He contributed and supported that project for years - he and Gerry Williams were the best story tellers making the history of Shubenacadie interesting for anyone that would listen.

The MacInnis Trail was another act of kindness with donating the land to provide the Village with a beautiful nature trail for families to enjoy for years to come.

For so much of what Ross has done - the Community and its residents have benefited.  His wisdom, insight, fair and balanced approach to opportunities and obstacles alike and his passion and dedication to Shubenacadie will be greatly missed.

We want to let Madeline and the family know that our thoughts and prayers are with you in this time of loss.  We also celebrate with you the life of you beloved husband, father and grandfather...

New Event Stage for the Shubie River Park

Mon Aug 18, 5:44 PM

With every renovation - first comes the dismantling of the existing project.  The old Ball Building in the Park has been an eyesore for quite a number of years.  About two years ago we were touring the park with Dan Chassie from Halifax C&D, they did the marvelous job for us on the drainage in the park - Pam MacInnis the councillor at the time mentioned how bad that buidling looked.  Dan immediately said " Would it help if I provided new siding and roofing for it from my Scotia Metals company".  Well that spark started this whole process that is finally underway.

Tear down team - Richard Ashton and his team - Andre, Brent, T.J., Cameron and Johathan worked VERY hard Friday, Sunday and some on Monday to tear the top off that old building.  It was a big job and we needed this kind of volunteer help.  What an amazing job they did.  See the photos of the old buidling.

Over the next two weeks keep your eyes on the project - and if you have some buidling skills and would like to help come on down for the re-build.  Derek Taylor is leading that charge. 

When complete we will have the Washrooms, Snackbar and Ball Storage building with a new metal roof and siding - we will also have an Event Stage on the back of the buidling facing out to the Ball Field - this will be ideal for special events - it will be a 20' x 13' stage - ideal for Canada Day, Canoe to the Sea, community events and concerts.  Provincial Heritage and Culture has contributed to this project and we thank them for that.

Please be careful with your children down around that area and have them stay back from the construction going on.

Thanks again to Richard and his team.

Big Tree Attacks Shubie River Dock

Tue Jun 24, 6:09 PM

We are working hard to get the Park ready for Hay Days / Canada Day.  A very large tree floating up the river a few days ago got caught up under the floating dock in the Village.  This happens quite often wiht smaller trees and when the tide changes they float back down the river.  Well this one has been stuck for almost a week.

We were trying to figure out how we could get it out of there.  Well I dropped in to ask Shane and he immediately took action.  Brought his Tow Truck down to the River.  You should see him handle that machine.  We worked on it for about an hour and he was able to pull it out - up on shore and out of the way.  It is a big one and would make some wonderful River Wood for someone. 

We want to thank Shane for coming to our rescue and releasing the dock so it can once again go up and down with the tide as it is supposed to.

We are so fortunate to have this facility in the Village.

We Will Always Remember - Hundreds Attend Service in Shubie

Mon Nov 11, 7:18 PM

It was cool and windy Monday morning but that didn't deter the 500-600 residents that gathered at the Cenotaphe in the Centre of the Village to Remember our men and women in the Military.  The Legion does a great job to organize and coordinate this service.  Bob Smith from the Legion led the service - he read off the Honour Role - it was interesting to hear how many from our community gave their lives in service of this great country.

Pastor Martin Reid from the Shubenacadie United Church prayed and brought words of encouragement to all that attended.  He provided some interesting facts from the wars of the past that helped us better understand what these troops went through.

There were a great number of Wreaths placed on behalf of diffenet levels of Government - Community Groups - Families - Businesses...

One of the things I like to see at the end is veryone going up and placing their poppies on the Wreaths or in the flower boxes.

Thank you to all that helped make this a special time for us and thanks to all that came.

Let always remember....


Sat Jul 27, 11:23 AM

Even though the 2013 Hay Days and Canada Day events were spread over two weekends and dampened a little by the weather a GREAT time was had by all.

Canoe to the Sea

Went as scheduled on Canada Day and a very good turn out despite poor weather forecasts.  Paddlers left the Shubie Dock paddling with the Tide all the way down to Maitland.  Allan Billard and his team did a great job to make this a special event.  We are so fortunate to have the mighty Shubenacadie River run right through the Village

Delayed one Week to July 7

Majority of events were delayed to Sunday July 7 and there was still very good trunout to all of the activities.  Breakfast at the Legion was well attended and they had an Auction going on as well with many special items up for grabs.

Classic Car Show - the car show was fun with a variety of vintage models coming from all across the Maritimes.  The organizing team did a great job to pull this off after having to cancel July 1st.  Big crowds wandered through the ground enjoyed the BBQ and the United CHurces Strawberry Shortcake.

Tin Shop Museum - had a full dave of activities like usual and people wondered in and out all day

Hay Days Parade - with honourary Parade Marshal - Dr. Ross MacInnis - made its way through the Village to the delight of families lining the streets.  There was a confilct with the change of dates wiht the Elmsdale Parade but Shubie still had a great showing.

Activities in the Park - the bouncy toys - food booths - face painting - wading pool - play ground - K9 Flyers were fun

10 - 2 Midnight - Live and in Concert in the park - the park and surounding areas filled up to the GREAT music of this live band - they played a great variety of music that was enjoyed by all - they were so good we have already booked them for next year

Shubie Fireworks - Our Shubie volunteer fire brigade do an AMAZING job on putting together one of the best fire works displys in the region.  Even with the rescheduling an estimated 2,500 people came - lined the streets and roads all around to enjoy this display

Well even with the challenges of the weather Chairperson Christine Barr - her committee and the litterally 100+ volunteers that helped in one way or another to put on a great event - to you we say THANK YOU - it was soooo much fun.

Thank You for your Support

Heritage Canada as well as our own local Business Community and also families in the community provided their financial support to allow the event to happen.  THANK YOU to each of you as well....

Braden enjoyed a GREAT year in 2012 - competing in 31 local ciruit races in Nova Scotia and New Brunswick.  He had FOUR Feature WINS and multiple heat race wins throug the season.  At the end of the season he was crowned INEX Canadian National Bandit Champion - this is amazing for a young racer from Shubie.  The award was recently presented in Charlotte NC but Braden was unable to attend.  He and team leader Dad (Craig Langille) are getting ready for their first races south of the boarder.  They are heading to Florida February 16th to run the Winer Nationals which consists of five straight days of racing.  Braden will be running in the Bandit only class wich consists of kids 8 - 11. 

We are so proud as a community to have Braden racing for our Village.  We will all be chearing him on.  Post this on your Facebook and let people know about your great local racer...

Shubie Community Hall Gets New Roof

Thu Dec 06, 3:19 AM

You really couldn't miss it the new bright orange roof on the Community Hall.  We were forntunate to get support from the Province to be able to do a number of upgrades to the Hall.  Neil Barr has been overseeing the project and putting a lot of time and effort in it.  The Haven Homes team has been doing a good job getting the roof on in rather tough weather.

It is great to have the Hall in good condition and open to the public to be able to rent it for special occations. 

Update on Cody Anthony & Team Canada - in Argentina

Mon Nov 12, 12:06 PM

Our own Cody Anthony was chosen as one of the two Team Captains for Team Canada

In their second playoff game on Saturday Team Canada was able to defeat the US Team.  They had had a lengthy rain delay so right after that game they had to play again - this time it was Australlia and they lost a tough battle 3 - 2.  The winner of that game was guaranteed at least a bronze medal.  So our Canadian boys ended up with a 4th place finish in the World Championships.  Cody's mom Terry said "This Team made Canada very proud this week and I am very proud that my family could be part of it".  "I also want to say how proud we are of Cody".

We too would like to say how proud Shubie is of Cody Anthony and the whole Team Canada.  What a great showing in this prestigious event in Argentina.

“Lest We Forget”

Sun Nov 11, 12:29 PM

Today is Remberance Day - the special day each year we remember those that have fought for the freedoms we enjoy.  It is the day where we stop to honour our fallen soldiers and our troops in service.  Shubenacadie will gather at the Cenotaph for a service.  It is a warming ceromony as an honour guard marches through the Village, the crowd gathers to sing, pray, hear the traditional "In Flanders Field".  The two minutes of silence is special as our thoughts and prayers go to those in the past and present.  The laying of wreaths - it is great to see so many families, groups and businesses step up to be part of this.

Then at the end everyone in the crowd brings their poppy up and pin them on a wreath... a see of red poppies soon appears.

Thank you to all who help to put on this special event. honouring_our_troops

Cody Anthony with Canadian National U19 Team in Argentina

Wed Oct 31, 7:27 PM

Shubie’s own Cody Anthony

cody_pitch_photo_lr_226_01          Named to Canada’s U19 National Team

“It’s a dream come true”  Cody is with the Canadian Under 19 Junior Men’s Fast Pitch team at the World Fast Pitch Championships in Argentina.  Proud Mom & Dad – Terry & Jackie Anthony were delayed by the Tropical Storm Sandy.  They are flying out Nov 1st to be with Cody for this huge event with the Canadian Team.

Cody was chosen for the National Team back in August and will represent Shubenacadie, Nova Scotia and Canada in this prestigious event.

Cody made the team during tryouts in Kitchener, Ontario in August.  He said this was one of the best experiences of his life… even though it was a tough grind it was great. He said after the camp he knew he had given it all he had.  It was hard to get any sleep from the trip home and until the phone finally rang.  When Tom Doucette gave Cody the word it was a great relief and exciting for the whole family.

This once in a lifetime trip to Argentina will see the team in competition for 10 days.  Jackie said they have already had several exhibition games to get ready for the Tournament.

Shubenacadie wants to say – "We are very proud of what you have accomplished Cody and wish you every success this coming 10 days and for your future in the game".


            Go Cody and Team Canada Go

The Anthony’s have been tremendous promoters and supporters of Ball here in the Village and have made sure kids through the years have had a field to play on.  They have invested greatly in their community and for that again we say Thank You…

Shubie River Park Drainage Project

Fri Aug 31, 12:07 AM

Over the past number of years the area between the Ball Fields and the River has been getting wetter and wetter.  When the river floods over the banks on a high tide or we get large amounts of rain it hasn't been able to drain out to the river. It has been eroding the shore line and creating a couple of swamp areas.  There are several sink holes that had become dangerous.

In discussion with inovator owner of Halifax C&D Dan Chassie we shared our problem and concern.  He shared that he had a solution using his TDA - Tire Derivitive Aggregate - that will allow water to flow through it but holds up the grass and topping.  Hank Kolstee a retired Tidal Drainage expert with the Province designed what was needed and how to do it.  Dan Chassie offered to do the whole project as a contribution to the Village of Shubie.  The Project is valued at over $20,000 for all the work that is being done.

They have dug a trench 6' deep - 12' wide from just by the Lift Station all around to the trial to the Floating Dock.  The trench was gilled with the TDA product - next it is covered with filter cloth - then soil put back over the TDA - leaving a strip 4' wide that will be covered with 1" clear stone.  The site will then be shaped to take any flow from the ball fields and or the river to this trench.

The whole trench then drains to a pipe at the end that will connect with an Abeteau - a flap that will open to let water out when the tide is out - close to protect tidal water coming up the pipe when the Tide is in.

This will be a showcase of this newer technology and will make a huge difference to the park.  We hope to be able to have picnic tables by the river next summer.

 The project is expectied to be finished up next week if the weather holds up.

Mr. Chassie is a partner in Scotia Plastics that donated the piping, owns Halifax C&D that has donated the TDA product, the trucking, the construction equipment, the abeteau.  Earlier this spring one of his other companies donated new metal Siding and Roofing for the Ball Field building - that project is planned to be completed this fall or in the spring.

We would like to offer a VERY SPECIAL THANK YOU to Dan Chassie and his team. 

Sidewalks & Trees…

Mon Jul 23, 6:55 PM

You have likely heard and seen the activity around the new Sidewalks on Main Street in Shubenacadie.  They are planned to run from Yummies Deli to Havenwood Dr.  When the tie a red ribbon around the old tree happened a couple of weeks ago we were all shocked to think that we might lose all these wonderful old trees.  Councillor Pam went to work to gain a better understanding of what needed to happen and how the Sidewalks would impact the trees.  A lot by lot review was complete, recommendations were found and presented to East Hants Staff to assist them in desiging the sidewalk package to be safe but still keep most of our beautiful trees.  It was great to receive a report back end of last week indicating that the vast majority of the trees are expected to be saved.  We must say Staff have really been working for the community on this one.  Thanks to Connie Nolan and her team.  Pam did another walk on the weekend to compare the notes from our presentation and the notes received back.  She had a the opportunity to chat with quite a few people as well.  Most were very excited that we can have both.... Sidewalks & Trees...

The Good News Is... we can have the enjoyment and safety of our sidewalks as well as the beauty of our trees.

We are hoping construction will be done this fall. If it is anything like Elmsdale people will come out and enjoy this new walking area - connect to the trails as well.streetscape_cover_640

This is exciting news we have Marlene Custance the "Story Hunter" coming to Shubie to chat with residents about the history of our Village.  She is starting this Thursday July 11 visiting with a couple of Shubie legends - Dr. MacInnis and Gerry Williams.  If you would like to be part of this and share some stories please let us know at

Email   or call us at  Tel: 758-4444 ask for Bettymarlene_constance_120

 This is the note from Marlene...

Hi, my name is Marlene Custance and I am a “Story Hunter” with a passion for keeping memories alive.  It all began when I wanted to write a book about my Grandmother; whom I loved dearly.   I researched, collected old photos, spoke to people who remembered her and before you know it a book came together.  I realized then how much I enjoy putting the puzzle of the past together. I have written several books both for myself and for others.  And as I finish one, there comes to mind several more that I MUST do.    I am looking forward to meeting you and hearing “your stories.”  


The Village of Shubenacadie has some very interesting stories that need to be shared.

Bring your story ideas to the Tin Shop Museum or call 758-2013 and they will come to you.  You can also use our email

What a GREAT Celebration - Hay Days / Canada Day

Tue Jul 03, 2:54 PM

dscn4185_lr_180Does it get any better than this past weekend.  There were over 100 volunteers in so many groups and organizations that worked so hard to put together a wonderful weekend of activity for Shubenacadie's Hay Days / Canada Day Celebrations.  There were many families and businesses that contributed to the event as well - to each of you we way a big THANK YOU.

Saturday Evening there was a group of local musicians who played to the enjoyment of people gathering in the Hall for a Coffee House.

Saturday morning a huge turn out for the Legion's Breakfast - sounds like we ate them out of house and home - well at least out of eggs but quickly they got more.  Great job to the team at the Legion.

It was great to see the community Churches come together to host a wonderful Canada Day Worship Celebration.  There was great music and some interesting personal stories from members of the different churches.

The Parade was one of the best in recent years.  There were so many new and interesting floats and people in the parade - some groups came from out around the area - there was a lot of work put into these floats.

The opening exercises were special as well - Sharon MacPhee led the group in the Singing of O'Canada - she does an awesome job - then we had a wonderful rendition of O'Canada in Mi'kmaq with a group of children from Indian Brook - it was very special.  We then had the opportunity to recognize three Service Groups within our community that were celebrating anniveraries this year

  • Shubenacadie Emergency and Fire Services - long time member Kevin MacDonald received a Plaque for the Brigade in honour of their 60 years of community service.
  • Shubenacadie Lions Club - King Lion Dennis MacDonald accepted their Plaque for 65 Years of service - they are involved in so many things in our Village - did you see their upgrades to the Lions building
  • Royal Canadian Legion 111 - Shubenacadie Legion - Albert Flemming and Pearl Cameron accepted their Plaque honouring 65 years of service - another great and active group in our community

The Classic Car Show was a big hit again with 100+ cars - this is always a highlight of the weekend - the BBQ and Strawberry Shortcake sold out as usual. 

The afternoon at the park had a variety of activities with Bouncy Toys - Wading Pool - Dunk Tank - Booths - Tug of War which the Famers / Farmhands won this year and took home the Milk Can Trophy.

In the evening the Blue Jam Grass Band provided a wonderful eveniong of music - they entertained a good size crowd that kept growing as the crowd came for the fire works.

 The Fireworks again this year were specatcular...  Chief Wayne Green and his crew did an excellent job.  It was amazing to see cars lined up on every availlable road in and around the Village to watch this event.  Again they were rated as one of the best in the region and enjoyed by about 3,000 people...

As part of the community we would like to give a VERY LARGE - THANK YOU -  to the Hay Days organizing committee - the many workers that did everything from cleaning washrooms to cutting grass to serving in one way or another.  Over 100 volunteers committed to making this one of the BEST Hay Days / Canada Day Celebrations ever. dscn4179_lr_180dscn4193_lr_180_01
