Shubenacadie Canal Commission’s Launches New Fundraising Campaign, Adopt-A-Lock

The Shubenacadie Canal Commission is excited to announce a new fundraising initiative called Adopt-A Lock.

Just in time for the holiday season, the people of Nova Scotia can now symbolically adopt a piece of Nova Scotia history.  There are currently three locations to be adopted: The Marine Railway in Downtown Dartmouth, Lock 3 at Shubie Park and Lock 6 at Horne’s Settlement in Enfield.

A $25 symbolic adoption includes a full-colour, 8.5” x 11” adoption certificate and a commemorative 8-page historical booklet about the Lock. A $50 symbolic adoption includes, a full-colour, 8.5” x 11” adoption certificate, a commemorative 8-page historical booklet about the Lock and a one of a kind stuffed animal native to the waterway or an 8×10 framed photograph of the Lock. A tax receipt will be issued for the full amount of the adoption.

“We are very excited to launch a new engaging initiative and raise much needed funds,” said Bill McIntyre, chair of the Shubenacadie Canal Commission. “This is a great way for the public to connect with their favourite park or a piece of Nova Scotian history.”

Did you know that the Shubenacadie Canal Commission is a charitable organization that depends on dedicated volunteers who work to improve park spaces and water access along the waterway? Recent projects include free interpretive tours of the Marine Railway, an ADA accessible dock at Shubie Park and a new boardwalk at Lock 6 in Enfield. These projects were made possible through the financial support of the community.
