The waterfront has always been a community gathering place for NHCN. Over the years its been a place to gather for ceremonies, special events and a place for families to gather to enjoy each others company. Weather sometimes was a factor during the events and would cause delays and sometimes costly cancellations. In order to accommodate the need for shelter during the events a canopy was purchased for the waterfront.
The canopy was purchased and sent to NHCN in shipping containers to be installed by local labour. Several local labourers were hired to install the canopy and they worked late into the night to complete the work and a fantastic job. The canopy can accommodate up to 500 people.
