Celebration of Life in New Glasgow on Saturday for Carlton Munroe

A Celebration of Life for music industry professional Carlton Munroe will be held this weekend in New Glasgow.

Beginning at 1 p.m. on Saturday and running until 1 a.m., the event will feature a full day of music featuring some of Munroe's favourite artists.

The 48-year-old passed away at home on November 22nd after battling glioblastoma, the same brain cancer that took his idol, Gord Downie.

Munroe got his start at East Coast FM in New Glasgow and eventually left radio to make a big impact as Program and Events Manager with the Town of New Glasgow and Executive Director of the New Glasgow Riverfront Jubilee.

There will be a community food table on site Saturday, and donations of finger foods and snacks will be accepted.

Donations in Munroe's memory, for a fund for his children, may be made at any East Coast Credit Union or to the Chanie Wenjack Fund.
