Minister Gail Shea, Premier Wade MacLauchlan, Chair Gordon Ellis, as well as a few local Councillors - Councillor Beth Pretty (with Piper and Aubrey in tow!) and Eric Ellsworth came to discuss the future renovations of the front entrance of Stanhope Place, and the Federal Government's funding to come from the Canada 150 Infrastructure Program, recently announced. Also in attendance were Verner Smitheram (Chair of Friends of Covehead-Brackley Bays) Malcolm Campbell, and Alison Ellis of the Stanhope Heritage Association who have contributed $15,000 towards the project.
Renovations to Stanhope Place will include the updating the main door (in disrepair after a break in), an easier access to the building for seniors including a change to the small stairs.
Sometimes without evening knowing it you are being a good neighbour or a bad neighbour. When I lived in Charlottetown I had good and bad neighbour experiences with the same neighbour, however they all ended in having a good neighbour, all because - we communicated. Yes, that wave, smile, small chit chat and the consideration and communication all helped to have a great neighbourhood to live in. People don't need to socialize if they don't want to but being considerate goes a long way to making a great neighbourhood.
Being a Good Neighbour - simply put.

Sign up for a day of eco-learning and adventure for youth
The Friends of Covehead-Brackley Bay (FCBB) are sponsoring a day for young people, aged 9-14 to learn about stream enhancement. They will be shown examples of digger logs, silt traps, brush mats, fish ladders, tree plantings, and new stream crossings. Our watershed crew will demonstrate how these activities affect our water supply, our fish, and our wildlife. There will also be a display on piping plovers, fish identification, and an electrofishing display.
The day will be held on August 14th and young people should wear appropriate clothing and sneakers they can get wet or rubber boots. Parents or guardians are encouraged to accompany the youth. Lunch will be provided, and the day will last from 10am to 3pm.
Space is limited so please register early by calling the FCBB office at (902) 672-2182 or email email@example.com. Adult volunteers who would like to assist are also encouraged to attend.

Come mix and mingle, socialize and have your say on the strategic direction of your community for the next five years. The Community of North Shore Council have started the strategic planning process and welcome your input. Rather than having a stuffy presentation style setting the Council decided that a more open community-like social setting would be more conductive of getting your ideas going. There will be some snacks and beverages provided by Joanne Jay a local entrepreneur. Around the walls of the gym there will be large blank sheets with writing utensils for you to add your thoughts or cards with pencils to drop your ideas into a box.
When: Wednesday, August 12th
Where: North Shore Community Centre
Who can come: Full or Part-time residents, if you feel you are part of the community then you are!
Why: Council wants to know what you think.
