LNG foes say cheese

Mass photo op planned for NB Day


ST. ANDREWS — St. Andrews residents are being urged to make sure they "get in the picture" on New Brunswick Day and show their support for the town's fight against liquefied natural gas (LNG) in Passamaquoddy Bay.

Posters are being displayed around the town asking people to get to the town wharf at 11 a.m. [AT] on Monday, Aug. 6, New Brunswick Day, for a group photo being organized by Save Passamaquoddy Bay/Canada to show their opposition to the three LNG projects in development on the Maine side of the bay.

As usual there are a number of activities planned during the day starting out with the Farmers' Market from 8:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. [AT], which will include produce, crafts and face painting for the children.

At 10 a.m. [AT] the New Brunswick Day awards will be presented to deserving citizens at the Sheriff Andrews House, then everyone is asked to head to the wharf for that photo shoot.

From noon until 4:30 p.m. [AT] Tim Isaac will be holding an auction at the Fairmont Algonquin and at 2 p.m. [AT] there will be a special sale of a large Anne MacKeen painting as well as a large 19th Century Italian still life, with the proceeds going to Save Passamaquoddy Bay/Canada.

Also from noon until 2 p.m. [AT] the Sheriff Andrews House will be selling hot dogs and punch for $2, plus there will be a raffle and music by the Valley Gospel Singers.

The Ross Memorial Museum will also have a fundraiser with $2 for cake and punch.

There will be face painting as well as a craft for children and music by Live Connection. All proceeds from the day's events will be donated to SPB/Canada.
