Arras Branch 59 of the Royal Canadian Legion is looking for pictures and stories of family members from this area who have served our country. The hope is to digitally preserve this important part of our heritage. Please contact the Legion for more information.

Good news! It looks as though a new refugee family, a family of 6, will be arriving in Antigonish in the last half of February or early March. This is especially good news as we have been waiting for this family for over 2 years. SAFE (Syria-Antigonish Families Embrace) is looking for a 3-bedroom house or apartment for them. If you know of one, please contact SAFE at safamiliesembrace@gmail.com and any questions you might have will be answered. Thank you for being such a welcoming and supportive community.
