By Kevin Northup Nov 15, 2022 | 10:52 AM

On this week’s show, there was a rescue of several dolphins on the shores of Digby recently. We get details from Tonya Wimmer of the Marine Animal Response Society.

We also hear from 104-year-old Second World War veteran Jim McRae, and how he was celebrated leading up to Remembrance Day last week.

There was a major funding announcement for the Mariners Centre expansion last month. We’ll talk to several dignitaries who were on hand at the announcement.

And we profile “Groundhog Night”, Shubenacadie Sam’s Shadow,’ a new children’s book by Valley-based artist Doretta Groenendyk.
