As the World reflects on the passing of Queen Elizabeth the Second, many in our region are remembering a Royal Visit to Shelburne. The new reigning Monarch King Charles visited Shelburne in 1983, along with his wife at the time, a young Princess Diana. Former CJLS owner and reporter Ray Zinck produced a feature on the Royal Visit, and you'll hear that in two parts on this episode.
And, Candice Phibbs is joined by Mary Eldridge and Daniel Holland to learn more about the Yarmouth Area Community Fund and a new funding stream.
