The Yarmouth County Athletic Awards are moving to January, but nominations are being sought now. We talk about that and more with Yarmouth Recreation Director Frank Grant.

Support for dementia caregivers is coming to Yarmouth next month. The Alzheimer’s Society of Nova Scotia is holding two in-person support programs. Jakob Postlewaite speaks with Sandra Hubbard-LeBlanc about the sessions.
