·1 min read

ST. MARY’s – It is, as they might say, “a shot rock right on the button.” For all non-curlers out there, that’s a good thing.

​The Municipality of the District of St. Mary’s and St. Mary’s Curling Club have received the 2021 Innovation Award from Recreation Nova Scotia (RNS). The award recognizes an organization, community or individual who has pioneered improved access and opportunities through innovative recreation programs, services, events and policies.

​The RNS awards program – including those for community cooperation, achievement, support, and environmental stewardship – pay tribute to exceptional people and groups individuals, organizations, facilities and communities who, make outstanding contributions “towards the betterment of the recreation movement in Nova Scotia.”

Said Mallory Fraser, St. Mary’s active living coordinator: “The Municipality is proud of the partnership it has fostered with the St. Mary’s Curling Club. We are pleased to work with the curling club to provide the ability to curl in our community. There are few hockey rinks around the province that transform its surface into a curling sheet. We are fortunate to have that knowledge here in the municipality. We are proud of this award, and all who are involved.”
