Funding Supports Mahone Bay Old School

A big celebration is planned to commemorate the centennial anniversary of the Mahone Bay Old School. South Shore St. Margaret's MP Gerald Keddy has announced just over $14,000 to help host activities related to the celebration of the historic building. Events will take place beginning in the new year and running through to September. In total, 140 local artists and heritage performers will be featured over nine months. Some of the activities include a story telling about school days and historical walking tour. The 100th anniversary of the Mahone Bay Old School will involve about 200 volunteers and attract an audience of about 2,000.
