Deadline for votes is looming
That is the message from Londonderry resident Amanda Langille regarding her community's entry in a nationwide Internet contest.
"The countdown is on for the Thirsty Church," she said, of the public voting aspect of the Aviva Community Fund, which wraps up shortly after midnight on Wednesday.
Langille entered her community church in the contest in the hopes of winning funding to enable plumbing and running water to be installed, to provide wheelchair access and have the basement finished for use as a community centre.
With thousands of ideas already fallen by the wayside, the Londonderry entry is the only one from Nova Scotia still in the running and Langille is calling on widespread community support to keep the church viable for a cash prize that could go as high as $250,000.
"I wish I knew what to say to inspire people to vote," she said. "What other time will we have an opportunity to bring this much money to Londonderry Station?"
Anyone wishing to participate can vote daily. For information on the contest, simply Google the Thirsty Church.
