Annual Tree Cutting Set For This Morning

A tree cutting ceremony is planned for this morning to mark Nova Scotia's annual Christmas gift to Boston.
This year's selected tree is a white spruce from Fox Point that belongs to Floyd Shatford, the Deputy-Warden of Chester.
Every year since 1971 the province has sent a Christmas tree to the people of Boston in appreciation for their help during the aftermath of the Halifax Explosion.
Students from Aspotogan Elementary and Shatford Memorial schools will be taking part in the tree cutting ceremony.
The event which is also open to the public takes place at 10 o'clock this morning, at Highway 329, Fox Point Shore Road, house number 823.
