Flags in the Town have been lowered to half-mast this afternoon following the very sad news that Al Whittle passed away on January 23rd at age 91.  Our sincere condolences to his family and friends.

The Board of Directors of the Al Whittle Theatre / Acadia Cinema Coop sent the following message:

Our deepest condolences to his family and all those close to him. Al was the face of our theatre for decades and played a crucial role in enabling its transfer to our member-owned cooperative. An obituary will be published in the coming days. We urge you to watch this short film from 2013, in which Al recalls his career as the theatre operator.

Thank you Jeff Cantwell, Carl Oldham and Mercedes Brian

As we approach a new year we would be remiss not to say a big thank you to the Councillors we said farewell to this year and, our former Mayor who retired from office in 2020.

Just before the holidays, Mayor Donovan thanked Jeff Cantwell, Carl Oldham and Mercedes Brian for all their enthusiasm, commitment and work undertaken while on council and presented them with a small gift of thanks.

Thank you Jeff, Carl and Mercedes for your many years of service to the Town Council and to Wolfville!
