Digby Port Day
The first annual Digby Port Day had a good turnout on Monday, June 28, bringing in citizens and business operators interested in the future of the Port of Digby. The focus of the event was spread over the repairs and future of the wharf, the Saint John-Digby Ferry, and the opportunities available through the Bay of Fundy. The Digby Harbour Port Association has made a number of improvements on the wharf over the years, and the future of the wharf is bright as the city looks to welcome pleasure boats, cruise ships, and hopes to be the centre of tidal energy through the Bay of Fundy.
The iconic windmill in Bear River was torn down in the beginning of June following an inspection of the building weeks beforehand. The original plan was a restoration, but after serious structural issues with the building were unearthed, and much debate throughout the community, it was decided that it would be in the community’s best interest to tear down the windmill.
