Happy Canada Day

July 1st 2013 is the 146th anniversary of Canada's confederation
It was once said, "Canada Day, like the country, is endlessly decentralized. There doesn't seem to be a central recipe for how to celebrate it—chalk it up to the nature of the federation," but celebrate it we do.

HAPPY CANADA DAY........ our day, to celebrate together.

Dear Canada - We Love Liverpool, Nova Scotia

Dear Canada
Liverpool is a little town on the south shore of Nova Scotia. It is the perfect place for retirees and semi retirees who are looking for a quiet, laid back old fashioned feel, where it is safe to walk out after dark, where your beach for the day is a 5 minutes drive and the streets are tree lined with old growth that cast dappled patterns on old Victorian homes . The climate - is mild, mild, mild with four season.
Happy Canada Day.
So when are you coming?
Sincerely yours,

Privateer Days - Liverpool

DATE: June 21st to June 23rd 2013
LOCATION: Liverpool Nova Scotia

An event that pays tribute to our Privateering past while never losing its sense of fun.
Privateers were privately owned ships that were authorized by government to raid ships from other countries—a form of legalized piracy on the high seas. The men who served aboard these ships were referred to as "privateers."
Liverpool quickly emerged as one of British North America's leading privateering ports, eventually deploying more privateer vessels than even the much larger city of Halifax. Ships like the Lucy, the Rover, and the Liverpool Packet gained international renown for their workmanship and speed, and the prowess of their crews inspired respect and fear.

Thomas Fall - Liverpool NS Boxer

Tommy Falls with his mom, Reta.
Thomas Fall was born in Liverpool on July 24,1916. He was the oldest of 8 children born to Tom Sr and Reta (Harper) Falls.  Like  for many young men in Liverpool, at that time, boxing became a passion for him. While serving in the army, he won the Canadian Army Boxing Championship 1940-41. After the war ended, Tommy and his wife returned to Canada and made their home in Montreal. Their children include sons Thomas, Randolph and Derrick. One day in September 1948, Tom was arrested by the Montreal Police and beaten to death.  It should be noted that, at the same time, Tommy's father Tom Sr was in Liverpool battling cancer and he died in November of the same year. Tommy was buried in Pte. Claire, Quebec a few days after his death. He is buried in the Field of Remembrance, a military cemetery operated by the Last Post Fund.

Thomas Falls Jr.


is made up of many cultures and diverse ethnic backgrounds with a history and heritage shaped by the many people, past and present, who make Liverpool their home.
