From 17 to 24 February 2019, more than 100 junior curlers from up to 20 countries will be heading to Liverpool, Nova Scotia, Canada to participate in the World Junior Curling Championships 2019, and Fort Point Lighthouse will help guide their arrival.
The local organizing committee unveiled the logo for the event, made possible with investment from the Federal Government through the Atlantic Canada Opportunities Agency on Saturday 9 December 2017.
Greg Thorbourne, chair of the organizing committee, said: “Extending an invitation to the world to come to Liverpool presents us with a chance to celebrate the very best and most distinctive aspects of our community. I’d envisioned a logo that featured Fort Point Lighthouse since we began planning this event.”
Built in 1855, Fort Point Lighthouse was decommissioned in 1989, and under the leadership of the Municipality, it transitioned into an iconic interpretive center and attraction for Liverpool. As the third oldest lighthouse structure in Nova Scotia, she’ll be guiding the world to Liverpool and shining a bright light on the warm hospitality and event hosting excellence that the community is known for.
