LAWRENCETOWN, Nova Scotia, May 18, 2012 – Greg Kerr, Member of Parliament for West Nova, today announced funding for the Annapolis Valley Exhibition, celebrating the local arts and culture of The Annapolis Valley.

“I am pleased to announce the Government of Canada’s continued support for the Annapolis Valley Exhibition,” said Greg Kerr, MP for West Nova. “The Exhibition highlights our shared cultural and Agricultural Heritage that we can all be proud of here in the Annapolis Valley.”
“The support of the Government of Canada is truly appreciated,” said Rachel Taylor, Manager of the Annapolis Valley Exhibition 2012. “This is the 86th edition of the Exhibition and we look forward to another great event this summer.”
