50 YEARS AGO – JAN­UARY 5, 1967

Wiarton Echo - - PAST AND PRESENT -

- The Wiar­ton Pro­peller Club held the first of­fi­cial open­ing to the public Friday, De­cem­ber 30th, when Honorary Pres­i­dent Cap­tain Harold Miller cut the Cer­e­mo­nial rib­bon of­fi­cially open­ing the club.

- John Cole­man of Wil­low­dale, grand­son of W.G. Cheshire of Wiar­ton, when look­ing over some his­tor­i­cal ma­te­rial in the Archives Dept. at Ot­tawa, came across a book­let which was a history of Wiar­ton up un­til the end of last cen­tury. It is doubt­ful that there are many of these book­lets left in Wiar­ton but some­one has been far-sighted enough to send a copy to the Archives at Ot­tawa.

- Things are busy with the Bach-Simp­son Com­pany these days. They are in­stalling the equip­ment for train­ing, at the town hall, and start­ing this week to train some of the peo­ple who will work at their fac­tory. This train­ing will go on for at least a month.
