Members of the Lobster Fishers of Area 26A presented a major donation to the Pictou Lobster Carnival. Committee chairperson Shawn McNamara, left, and media relations officer Kent Corbett, centre, received cheques totalling more than $6,000 from local fisherman Tracy MacCarthy on behalf of his fellow fishers. The following wharves collected either monetary contributions or a dozen lobster from fishers to make up this generous donation: Arisaig, including Pictou Landing First Nations, Northumberland Fishermen’s Co-op, The Harbour Authority of Caribou, The Harbour Authority of Skinner’s Cove, Wedgeport Lobsters, Love Me Fish and North Nova Seafoods. The committee expressed gratitude to the individual fishers of 26A who donated in support of the Pictou Lobster Carnival as they celebrate the carnival’s 84th anniversary taking place in Pictou from July 6 to 8.
