Raymond T. Doyle

There are many milestones in Cape Breton this summer.  The Gaelic College in St Ann's is celebrating its 75th year,  the Cape Breton Fiddlers' Association has been having a summer concert for forty years now, and Louisbourg is marking the three hundredth year of settlement.

New Waterford is also celebrating a major milestones.

This years marks the 100ths anniversary of the mining town.

Raymond T. Doyle grew up there. He moved away for work as a young man, but the community has never been far from his heart.

He has written a song as a gift to the community and joins us today to share it.
