New public access docks have been officially unveiled in a small water inlet on Cornwall's waterfront.
Royal Canadian Air Force Association Wing 424 cut the ribbon on the new docks Wednesday afternoon.
"This is a great accomplishment for our association," said Wing 424 president Ray Summers. "Our members worked hard to make sure that this project came to fruition."
Mayor Bob Kilger, Leonard Hart, a veteran of the Second World War and Summers cut the ribbon for the docks. The Wing partnered with the city, Hec's Tree Service and Demo Plus to create the docks. A lot of the time and material for the docks was donated, but unofficial estimates for the docks suggest a cost figure of $10,000.
"Undertaking projects that help provide strong local character is part of our overall mandate," said Summers. "And also this is a project that is aiding in welcoming the public to our facility.
"Our association has been located in a building that is one of Cornwall's most historic landmarks. We've been here for over 60 years and our goal is to make sure we are here for at least another 60 years."
