Town of Mahone Bay will be hosting the opening for the new Seven Feathers Crosswalk on Edgewater Street. At the request of the Anglican Church, the crosswalk will be painted this week and the opening will take place at 9:00am on Thursday July 27th in front of the Anglican Church.
The crosswalk will be a solid orange with seven white feathers. The seven feathers represent seven Indigenous teachings of respect, humility, bravery, honour, love, wisdom, and truth.
Kinburn Street will be closed today (except to local traffic) from the old Firehall to Spur Street so that necessary repairs can be made to the Kinburn Street bridge.
In the month of August, the Mahone Bay Water Utility will be conducting its annual Lead Sampling Program, testing the homes of 10 volunteers, to meet Health Canada testing requirements.
Lead is not a concern with the water that comes from the water treatment plant but if you own an older home, there could be some lead in your pipes, fixtures, etc. Volunteer to have your water sampled and the test results will be shared with you.
