It’s almost Christmas and we want to keep Santa and all the nice people of Wolfville safe, so Santa has swapped his up-close visit in Clock Park for a community patrol!
Between 2 and 4 pm, on Saturday, December 18, Santa will be trading his sleigh for a shiny red fire truck to tour the Town.
Be prepared for a Santa sighting, snap a pic and cheer on the man in red as he double-checks his list! Santa's route will be announced soon!
Due to the weather, Town Hall and our other Municipal sites will delay opening until 10am this morning.
Please be aware of our parking regulations. Snow is expected overnight.
Today, our flags are lowered in the Town of Wolfville.
On December 6, 1989, 14 young women at Polytechnique Montréal were murdered in an act of violence and misogyny.
On this, the National Day of Remembrance and Action on Violence Against Women we remember:
The National Day of Remembrance and Action on Violence Against Women is about remembering those who have experienced gender-based violence and those who we have lost to it.
In Canada and around the world, women, girls, 2SLGBTQQIA+ (two-spirit, lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, questioning, intersex, asexual, plus) and gender diverse individuals face unacceptable violence and discrimination.
Achieving a community, and a Country, free from gender-based violence means we must all be aware of gender-based violence, and speak up against harmful behaviours.
~ Mayor Wendy Donovan and Council
