To all Mount Uniacke Residents – past and present, near and far.
It’s time for our community to step up to the plate and hit a huge home run by voting for one of our own – Private John Curwin. This is our chance to have Pte John Curwin’s name proudly written on the side of Halifax Transit’s newest harbour ferry.
What a wonderful way to remember Pte Curwin and his dedication to our country and our community.

Well, I think winter is upon us. A gentle reminder to everyone to be safe on the roads this winter. The best tactic for all road conditions is to simply slow down and be focused on the road and everything around you. Also, please remember… if you see any emergency vehicles stopped on the road with their emergency lights flashing, please remember to slow down and change lanes if possible. The Nova Scotia Department of Transportation and Infrastructure Renewal has these instructions:
Motorists will be required to slow down to 60 kilometres
THANK YOU – a big thank you to the firefighters and their spouses for honouring me for 60 years of service in the Mount Uniacke Volunteer Fire Dept.
Thank you to everyone who came out in the snow storm on the Saturday night and to the open house on Sunday.
Thank you for all the gifts, cards and especially the well wishes.
It was very much appreciated. Morris Williams

She has no control over her body movements or functions and is confined to a wheel chair. She is non-verbal and requires a feeding tube. However, what most of you know…she is the sweetest, happiest girl around. We are so happy to have this angel in our lives but it does have its challenges

It is not just a building, it is not just a church. It is part of our history, being the second oldest building of significance next to the Uniacke House. The building is a well-known landmark.
It was first built as a school in an enclosure
