District of Lunenburg: Longhorn Spruce Beetle on Agenda

The longhorn spruce beetle found in the Lunenburg area recently has caught the attention of the Municipality. CAO Tammy Wilson says its a new issue for the Municipality and they haven't held any discussions. The Canadian Food Inspection Agency has written a notice prohibiting movement of any spruce logs, bark or wood chips off grounds in the Sawpit Wharf or Garden Lot areas without permit. The Municipality is expected to discuss the beetle during its next council meeting December 13.

Annual Food Bank Challenge

It's paramedics versus police versus RCMP in the third annual food bank challenge. The three emergency services are challenging each other and you to donate non-perishable food items... to see who can fill their vehicles with the most food. Bridgewater Police Chief John Collyer says the need to donate has never been greater. The Food Bank Challenge goes from 1-5pm Saturday at the Bridgewater Atlantic Superstore. All proceeds go towards the Bridgewater Interchurch Food Bank.
