Mayor Kogon declares May Gaelic Nova Scotia Month

Noting that Gaels, through their language and culture, have played an important part in Nova Scotia`s rich history, Mayor David Kogon declared May to be Gaelic Nova Scotia Month in the Town of Amherst.

“It’s important that we recognize all of the diverse cultures that have contributed to the province and to this community,” Kogon said in making the declaration.

“Throughout its history Gaels have had a positive social and economic impact on the province. They have also helped to demonstrate how cultural diversity is the foundation upon which we build our communities.”
