Artists Wanted for Skate of the Art Fundraiser
Are you a local artist looking to contribute your skill and talent to the new skatepark being built in Bridgewater? If so, the Grinders Square All Wheels Park Committee would like to hear from you.
“We received a donation of 50 blank skateboard decks from Propour Concrete Services and Sportwheels, and we’re looking to partner with local artists to make them beautiful,” said Britt Vegsund, Active Living Coordinator for the District of Lunenburg and Committee member. “With their help and talent, each board will be turned into a work of art that will be displayed at public buildings, cafés and farmers’ markets in July.”
The new skatepark will be owned by the Town of Bridgewater. Significant financial contributions have already been committed by the Town of Bridgewater, with contributions from the Municipality of the District of Lunenburg and corporate sponsors. The funds raised by Skate of the Art will add to the contributions raised by a crowd-funding campaign.

BRIDGEWATER, NOVA SCOTIA - The District of Lunenburg is now publishing Council and CAO expense reports online at www.modl.ca as part of the District’s commitment to open and transparent government.
“Municipal Affairs Minister Zach Churchill has discussed plans to introduce a bill that would ensure all Nova Scotia municipal councils and CAOs post their expenses online, and we decided that instituting this policy now made the most sense,” says Mayor Carolyn Bolivar-Getson.
Quarterly Council and CAO expense reports will be available at the end of the month following each quarter at: http://www.modl.ca/municipal-council/meet-the-council/expense-reports.
