Vera B. Stone
A Tribute / Un Hommage
An avid walker, trail enthusiast, leader, mentor and diligent worker, Vera B. Stone defines the Trans Canada Trail movement in Nova Scotia. As a founding member and a longstanding Chair for the Trans Canada Trail Committee of the Nova Scotia Trails Federation, she worked tirelessly to engage communities, volunteers, governments and the private sector in making the dream a reality.
Vera's contribution is measured by more than just the kilometres of the Trail, but also by the number of people she has touched along the journey. Her infectious passion inspired countless others to share her vision for this legacy. Her work enables residents and visitors to explore this stunning province for many future years.
Vera has forever left her mark as a pioneer of the Trans Canada Trail in Nova Scotia. She is the face, the voice and the spirit for the trail.
This plaque is dedicated as a symbol of appreciation for a special lady, Vera B. Stone — a proud Nova Scotian.
La contribution de Vera Stone ne se mesure non seulement en kilomètres du Sentier, mais également par le nombre d'individus qu'elle a touché le long du chemin. Sa passion contagieuse a inspiré de nombreux autres à partager sa vision du Sentier. Grâce à ses efforts, résidents et visiteurs pourront longtemps explorer et profiter de la superbe beauté naturelle de la Nouvelle-Écosse.
La travail de Vera Stone, pionnière, est devenu partie intégrale du Sentier transcanadien en Nouvelle-Écosse. En elle on trouve le visage, la voix et l'esprit du Sentier.
Afin d'exprimer notre reconnaissance d'une fière néo-écossaise tout à fait singulière, cette plaque est dédiée à Madame Vera B. Stone.
