Good morn­ing to all our read­ers and I hope you have been en­joy­ing the beau­ti­ful spring weather.

I hope lots of folks got out to cast their bal­lot on elec­tion day. If we don’t ex­er­cise our right to vote, there is no use of com­plain­ing about the re­sults.

Wen­dell and Mar­garet Reid were down to their cot­tage in North­port on Fri­day and mowed the lawn again. The grass seems to grow so quickly this time of year.

Our neigh­bours at the cot­tage, Keith and Quee­nie Perry of Amherst, were at their cot­tage also, and Quee­nie dropped in for a nice lit­tle visit with us.

Mary Es­ther Smith, Margo Pa­triquin and daugh­ter Lexie were to Monc­ton on Thurs­day. While there, they vis­ited with Jeanne and Gor­don MacCal­lum of Monc­ton.

Gor­don Stevens was vis­it­ing with Charles and Lois Ri­p­ley on Satur­day. Gor­don says they are both keep­ing quite well.

The United Bap­tist Ladies Aux­il­iary held a very suc­cess­ful rum­mage and bake sale at the Mil­l­vale Com­mu­nity Hall on Satur­day, May 27.

They also pre­pared three dif­fer­ent types of break­fasts, as well as hot dogs. This is an an­nual event and has proved to be quite pop­u­lar.

We were very pleased to have our el­dest son, James Reid of Bridge­wa­ter, visit with us for a few days last week.

Jim is very handy with his tools, and he fixed up a lot of out­side things that needed to be taken care of.

Wayne Reid and his wife Karma Reid of Pug­wash came Mon­day af­ter­noon, and Wayne and Jim fixed sev­eral things out­side, and then they had a nice visit with us.

A large num­ber of friends and rel­a­tives gath­ered at the home of Greg and Margo Pa­triquin on Satur­day af­ter­noon for a house warm­ing. Greg and Margo, Kya, Lo­gan and Lexie have just re­cently moved into their new home in Wyvern.

The oc­ca­sion was also a grad­u­a­tion party for their daugh­ter, Kya Mil­ton, who will be grad­u­at­ing in June.

The Ox­ford and Area Male Choir, as­sisted by sev­eral of the wives, pro­vided the mu­sic for the spe­cial service which was held in the Vic­to­ria United Church, on Sun­day, May 28, with Lau­rie MacLeod, preach­ing the mes­sage.

Af­ter the service, a de­li­cious lunch was served. Those who at­tended from this area were Bruce and Lorna Ste­wart, John and Vonetta Chouinard, Alvord and Lorna Ste­wart, Wen­dell and Mar­garet Reid.

Gor­don Stevens was among those who took part in the singing at the Capi­tol Theatre in Ox­ford on Fri­day night. Gor­don says there was a large crowd in at­ten­dance and a good num­ber took part in the pro­gram.

Mervyn and Mary Es­ther Smith were vis­it­ing in New Annan on Fri­day.

Sev­eral from this com­mu­nity at­tended the service which was held in the Went­worth United Bap­tist Church on Sun­day, June 4. The speaker for the service was Mark Crouse, of Folly Lake, son of Harry and Beth Crouse, and Mark brought a very thought-pro­vok­ing mes­sage.

Mark is a stu­dent at Aca­dia Divin­ity Col­lege. Mark’s friend, Chris Wick­ens, also of Aca­dia Divin­ity Col­lege, sang a solo, which was en­joyed by all. Af­ter the service ev­ery­one was treated to a nice hot cup of cof­fee.

Well, folks, that’s all the news for now, so stay busy and keep smil­ing. Wen­dell and I are hav­ing our 65th wed­ding an­niver­sary on June 11. Our chil­dren are plan­ning a small cel­e­bra­tion at a later date.
