MODL Votes Down Joint Birthday Celebration

A committee within the Municipality of Lunenburg has decided to pass on joint birthday celebrations with the town of Bridgewater. The two local governments had discussed the potential of celebrating Bridgewater's 115th birthday and the municipality's 135th birthday next spring. However, the committee felt the number wasn't significant enough to celebrate. Deputy Mayor Don Zwicker says it's not a milestone year.

Zwicker says the municipality could bring greetings to the town's celebration, but wouldn't get directly involved. A final decision is expected next week.
