Welcome to Lunenburg 2018

Last night’s Newcomers Reception welcomed over 30 new neighbours from across Nova Scotia, Canada, and the world! We’re delighted that people from all over can find their homes in our beautiful town. 

Mayor Rachel Bailey, MP Bernadette Jordan, and MODL Deputy Mayor Cathy Moore addressed our new residents; Cheryl Lamerson of the Welcome Committee gave a short history talk; and Councillors Croft, Buchanan, and Risser helped “initiate” guests into local food culture with a tasting of Lunenburg pudding, sauerkraut and Solomon Gundy. 

Thanks to all those who came out!
