No. 12 Mine Centennial

No. 12 Mine Centennial Important Piece of CBRM’s Canada 150 Celebrations

LANTERN PARADE, MEN OF THE DEEPS CONCERT TO COMMEMORATE EVENT

New Waterford, Nova Scotia – The mine whistle blew at No. 12 Colliery in New Waterford at 7:30am on July 25th, 1917. An explosion had rocked the pit, 2,000’ below the surface. 25 men were rescued, but 65 had perished in the blast.

The Cape Breton Regional Municipality (CBRM) Recreation Department will recognize this event, which shaped the history and fabric of the community 100 years ago, with a commemorative event taking place at Colliery Lands Park. In honour of those that lost their lives, 65 local children will participate in a lantern parade. Starting from the back of the park, the children will proceed to the monument which commemorates the event. A memorial ceremony featuring dignitaries will follow, with a concert from the Men of the Deeps leading into a social with refreshments.

The No. 12 Mine Centennial will take place at Colliery Lands Park on Tuesday, July 25th, at 6:30pm and continue to dusk. Residents from all areas of the CBRM are encouraged to attend this important piece commemorating of our community’s history. The No. 12 Mine Centennial event is an integral part of the CBRM’s Canada 150 celebrations, recognizing important events that bring our residents together as a community.
