[From the Editors] –Here it is! The first of our newsletters.

Thanks to those who took time to consider a name. There was no clear winner, but several suggested we incorporate the words “roots” and thus “Cumberland Roots” was born.

Because the name suggested a logo including roots, and the shape of the county resembles the crown of a tree it seemed logical to join them with a trunk shaped by the winds of Fundy, Tantramar and the Northumberland Strait. Hope you like it.
