United Baptist Ladies Auxiliary rummage sale a success
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.
