Brenda Skerry’s comment

” Wow, as a community member for over 50 years, of course my entire childhood was spent at this beach.  My wife and I served on the council here in this community for a good part of 20 years, always trying to bring our community together and build upon the beauty we knew we had right at our front door!  This is so incredibly awesome!  Especially the accessibility enhancement!  The people of Grand Tracadie should be proud that someone with the means, and the innovative know how, care enough about our beautiful community to do what you are doing! ❤️
