Yarmouth Mayor Christens New Ferry

The Mayor of Yarmouth has attended a ship christening ceremony in Boston. Pam Mood and other dignitaries were on board the new Yarmouth-Maine ferry Nova Star for the noon time christening. The mayor cracked the traditional bottle of champagne on the side of the newly built 530 foot vessel which will begin regular daily crossings between Portland and Yarmouth on Thursday. Mayor Mood says she will be aboard the ferry for its inaugural trip. The mayor says she's excited to be a part of history and is spreading the word in Massachusetts that Nova Scotia and her town in particular are great places to visit.
