On June 7, 2015, Lunenburg's 262nd birthday, a ceremony was held to add artist Earl Bailly (b. 1903, d. 1977) to the list of Prominent Lunenburgers. Mr. Bailly brought attention to Lunenburg through his lifelong artistic accomplishments and the acclaim he earned for his work and as an inspiration given that he achieved this acclaim as a polio victim who lost use of both arms and legs and painted by holding the brush in his mouth. Members of Mr. Bailly's family, nephew Ron Bailly and his wife Betty along with nieces Claire (Bailly) Creaser and Helen (Bailly) Bennet were on hand for the ceremony. Earl Bailly was nominated for this distinction by the Lunenburg Foundation for the Arts, having as an objective to preserve, curate and exhibit the works of artist Earl Bailly and are establishing an Earl Bailly scholarship fund to be used to foster creative self-expression, across multiple artistic media by physically challenged artists.
