After a longtime coming — and thanks to BG Group — Port Edward has a community gazebo to call its own.

BG Group provided Port Edward council with a $20,000 grant for the construction of a gazebo in front of the municipal offices and school. After more than a month of work, the gazebo was formally opened with a community barbecue on the evening of Aug. 26.

“This just a great day for Port Edward … we have been talking about this for at least 15 years. The vision was to have a gazebo, but we just didn’t have the funds to do it,” said former Mayor Dave MacDonald.
