CLARK'S HARBOUR, N.S. —

While the inclement weather may have kept most invited special guests from attending, that didn’t stop the Town of Clark’s Harbour from celebrating the 100th anniversary of its incorporation on March 4 with a dinner at the Royal Canadian Legion.

Former councillors, mayors, town clerks, school board representatives and long-serving volunteers were among the guests in attendance, joining present-day councillors in the celebration.

Education and Early Childhood Development Minister Zach Churchill attended to present a certificate of congratulations and best wishes to the town which stated in part: “Your community pride is an inspiration to all Nova Scotians.”

The town has a multitude of events scheduled throughout the year to mark its centennial, including a performance by the Nova Scotia Mass Choir at the United Baptist Stone Church on May 4.

The town also will be starting a community garden and has plans to plant a centennial tree in the spring. For up-to-date information on the Town of Clark’s Harbour’s celebrations, visit the Clark’s Harbour events Facebook page. https://www.facebook.com/clarksharbourevents/
