RESOLUTION NO. 145
By: MLA David Wilson (Sackville-Cobequid)
I hereby give notice that on a future day I shall move the adoption of the following resolution:
Whereas the Sackville Rivers Association was founded by volunteers in 1988 with a vision to create an active trail system running along the Sackville River, connecting communities in Sackville and Bedford, with the ultimate goal being a 40km trail running along the full length of the Little Sackville River from Fultz House to Little Lake; and
Whereas 30 years later, many residents enjoy walking and biking on the Fort Sackville Walkway in Bedford beginning at Scott Manor House to Range Park, continuing on to the Bedford Sackville Connector Greenway linking to Fultz House; and
Whereas on September 29, 2018, the Sackville Rivers Association, in line with their 30th Anniversary, will celebrate the grand opening of Phase 1 of the Sackville Greenway, connecting Sackville Drive to Glendale Drive;
Therefore be it resolved that all members of this House of Assembly congratulate the Sackville Rivers Association on 30 years of service to the preservation and enhancement of our waterways and trails and for the promotion of active living in the community.

SACKVILLE RIVERS ASSOC.: 30thANNIV. – BEST WISHES
By: MLA Brad Johns (Sackville – Beaver Bank)
Mr. Speaker, this year the Sackville Rivers Association celebrated its 30thanniversary on June 7th. This non-profit, volunteer-run charity is dedicated to preserving the rivers that run through the communities of Sackville and Bedford and Beaver Bank. In the past, the association has been busy with establishing active transportation trails, attracting fish & wildlife back to the community, and helping to keep Sackville’s waterways clean of litter and debris.
It was a pleasure to be able to attend their anniversary celebrations, and I would like to recognize the invaluable contributions this organization makes in helping to make Nova Scotia a greener and cleaner place to live. I would also like to wish Walter Regan and all the volunteers of the Sackville Rivers Association all the best and looking forward to 30 more years of success.
