Lunenburg Barnacle Vol. 1, No 2. is here

Editor’s note

Thank you so much to all of our readers who reached out with words of encouragement and feedback since our launch one month ago. We are overwhelmed by your welcoming response.

If you listened to CBC Nova Scotia’s Information Morning broadcast yesterday at 6 a.m., you learned our first issue was published just five weeks following the inception of our idea to start a newspaper, borne over a trivia night discussion at The Knot Pub.

It’s with this enthusiasm and drive that we stay motivated to keep sharing stories from our community with you (and also results of who’s winning trivia at The Knot). We hope you will enjoy our second issue even more.

Jesse Ward, Editor-in-chief
