Happy New Brunswick Day

A New Brunswick Day traffic note to keep in mind this morning.

Up to 20 heavy military vehicles and buses are making their way down from Oromocto on Highway 2 towards Quispamsis, starting at 8am. Military police will be accompanying the move.

And if you can't make it out to the Valley for the province's official party, Saint John is celebrating New Brunsick Day at Rockwood Park.

Beginning at 11am there will be free boat rentals at Lily Lake.
Bernard the Magician performs at one, and there will be an open air concert all afternoon featuring the Swinging Cats and Mike Biggar.
The stables are also offering free wagon rides starting at 3:30.

City Recognizes Local Volunteers

The city giving out two Merit Awards to volunteers working in the city's priority neighbourhoods.

Tammy Calvin being recognized for her work with O.N.E. Change and Juanita Black receiving an award for her work in Crescent Valley.

Black tells CHSJ News she hopes receiving the award brings more attention to the neighbourhood.

She says it's not just her, but a team of people working in the community.

Black says for a few years someone was damaging their bus shelter but the community kept scrapping it off until they left it alone.

She says helping out is about taking a stance, and if it helps your community than that's great.
