New Waterford memorial tonight

One of the worst coal mining disasters in Cape Breton history will be commemorated in New Waterford this evening with a concert by the Men of the Deeps and a children’s lantern parade.

They will mark the 100th anniversary of the No. 12 Mine explosion which killed 65 men.  25 other miners were rescued.  The ceremony will be held at 6:30 at Colliery Lands Park.
