Mayor's Newsletter - December 2010 [PDRF] >>
As Mayor of the Town of Upper Island Cove [incorporated in 1965], it is a distinct pleasure to welcome you to our newly established website and provide an overview of some of the fascinating features of our picturesque town.
Once dubbed “the walled city’ Upper Island Cove has a population 1667. Upper Island Cove is an ideal community to raise a family, start a commercial venture, or retire in comfort, while enjoying the amenities of a relaxing rural lifestyle.
Steeped in a rich fishing tradition with a panoramic view of the waters of Conception Bay, our Town has the best of both worlds: close proximity to nearby shopping malls, while far enough removed to escape the hustle and bustle of a hectic lifestyle.
Our many volunteers provide recreational and social activities for young and old alike, including the Upper Island Cove Summer Festival, Canada Day Parade, Bonfire Night Festivities, and the Jingle Bell Festival.
Hopefully, our website will be a valuable source of current information on the town sponsored activities and council proceedings. Feel free to visit our site on a regular basis.
George Adams, Mayor of Upper Island Cove
