Three to be honoured as part of Heritage Day

Halifax, February 19, 2008
Three Nova Scotians are being recognized for their work in heritage preservation as part of the national Heritage Day.

A West LaHave couple, Norbert and Helga Sattler, have, along with the Heritage Trust of Nova Scotia, set up the Maritime Stained Glass Registry in 2004. The couple operate Sattler Glass. They have created a photographic record of 150 churches in the Maritimes, states a Heritage Canada release issued Monday.

Working from photographs and sketches and a collection of broken glass, the Sattlers restored the 24 stained glass windows at the historic St. John's Anglican Church in Lunenburg. The 250-year-old church was destroyed by fire on Halloween night in 2001. Many of the original windows were broken by firefighters trying to battle the blaze.

The South Shore artisans spent 18 months recreating the windows.

Barry MacDonald, president of the Nova Scotia Lighthouse Preservation Society, is also being honoured.Mr. MacDonald has led the fight to save the 160 lighthouses along Nova Scotia's coastline, the release states.

"The recognition of these three individuals is very well deserved," said Phil Pacey, president of the Heritage Trust of Nova Scotia, in the release.The Heritage Canada Foundation promotes the third Monday in February each year as Heritage Day and has long advocated adopting this date as a national holiday.
