A very important historic event will happen in Riverside-Albert on August 16th. For the last three years, a joint committee co-chaired by Wilfred Savoie and Riverside-Albert Mayor Jim Campbell has been working diligently to complete the Chipoudie Monument project. The Monument has been created to honour the Acadian families who once inhabited the region known as Chipoudie, the area along the Shepody Bay coast from Lower Cape, Shepody, Hopewell Hill and the area in and around Riverside-Albert from 1700 to 1755.
The annual Rising Tide Festival in Fundy National Park is a summer highlight for many. On the coast of the Bay of Fundy and home to the highest tides in the world, Fundy National Park is an extraordinary setting to take in live outdoor music. Local festival-goers and tourists from all over Canada and beyond delight in this unique opportunity to connect with nature while enjoying musical performances by Anglophone, Francophone and First Nations musicians from Atlantic Canada.

Volunteer driver service to continue in Albert County
By Kelly Taylor
While it seemed that the volunteer driver service provided by Tele-Drive in Albert County was going to disappear following a press release by the Board of Directors at the end of June, the service will continue. The Tele-Drive Board of Directors is working closely with Rural Rides and WA Transpo to ensure clients in the region continue to have access to affordable transportation. All existing clients and drivers have been contacted and advised to call 962-3073 to book future rides.
