Yesterday we read the “love letter” [his words] to Acadia written by the mayor [he did write it, right?] published prominently in the Chronicle Herald. We almost swooned, didn’t you? We have since recovered enough to comment.
It was a hard choice but from among the large number of romantic sentences in this paean to academia, this is still our favorite.
We know by experience that bringing visitors to town is an essential way to maintain and grow the unique creativity, worldliness and dynamic culture that is Wolfville, in addition to having a major impact on the local economy.
We think this uniquely creative, dynamically cultural and worldly “thank you” note, worthy of an Acadia graduate, deserves a major award.
There is good news though, almost buried in poetic prose; we learn that Wolfville is “humming along nicely” and so, it seems, is Acadia. Whew! What a relief. We take this to mean that town taxes will not have to double after all and Acadia will meet its payroll.
Note to CH editors: Shouldn’t the headline to the
speech writer’s mayor’s open letter read – “Thanks a million Acadia and the Harrison McCain Foundation“?
