Christmas Tree send off for Boston in Amherst!

What a great send off for the Tree for Boston in Amherst today!

This year, the tree came from The Gourley Family in Stewiacke, right here in Cumberland-Colchester! Every year Nova Scotia sends Boston a tree as a thank you for sending medical personnel and supplies to Nova Scotia within hours of the Halifax Explosion in 1917. The explosion devastated north-end Halifax, killing nearly 2,000 people and leaving thousands more injured and homeless.
