Scenic bridge views focus of HHB fundraising calendar

November 23, 2021

The MacKay Bridge in winter is pictured in the January month of the Halifax Harbour Bridges fundraiser calendar.

Halifax’s iconic harbor bridges often serve as a backdrop for the personal and professional adventures that take place around Halifax and Dartmouth.

In a new fundraising calendar produced by Halifax Harbour Bridges (HHB), the Angus L Macdonald Bridge and the A Murray MacKay Bridge move from bit players to centre stage.

Canada’s fourth and fifth longest suspension bridges are featured from above, below, and in every season in a new 26-page wall calendar featuring images taken by a variety of bridge-loving photographers.

“They are photos taken by people who obviously feel a special connection with the bridges,” said HHB Manager and CEO Steve Snider. “We first spotted them in social media and then reached out to the photographers to see if they wanted to be part of a limited edition fundraising calendar.”

All profits from calendar sales go to support the work of the Nova Scotia division of the Canadian Mental Health Association.

“One in five Canadians will experience a mental illness in any given year. But five in five – that’s all of us – have mental health. And we all need to take care of it, “ said CMHA Nova Scotia Executive Director Karn Nichols. “We are appreciative of this fundraiser and the HHB’s efforts to get that message out there with this beautiful calendar. The need for our programs, support and resources has never been greater, so every little bit helps.”

Give the gift of Halifax this season. The calendars would make excellent stocking stuffers for those who may be far from home.

The calendars are $19.95 plus shipping. Order online on the Halifax Harbour Bridge website.
