40 YEARS AGO – JAN­UARY 13, 1977

Wiarton Echo - - PAST AND PRESENT -

- The first baby born in the Bruce Penin­sula and District Me­mo­rial Hos­pi­tal this year was David Ash­ley Whicher. David was born last Sun­day morn­ing at 8:30 a.m. He weighed 6 lb. 4 oz. The proud par­ents are Nancy and Max Whicher of Wiar­ton.

- A Wiar­ton rink, con­sist­ing of Ray Markle­vitz, skip, Bert Koes­lag, vice, Jim Pa­ton, sec­ond and Jack Hill, lead, are on a win­ning streak as they head into the On­tario Quar­ter fi­nal play­downs.

- Wiar­ton will soon have a Wel­come Wagon Host­ess, in the per­son of Phyl­lis Core, who lives at the Fish Hatch­ery. Mrs. Core is en­thu­si­as­tic about tak­ing on her new du­ties in March, when she will be­gin call­ing on new-com­ers, newly en­gaged girls, and new ba­bies in the Wiar­ton area.

- The Ro­tary Clubs of the Bruce Penin­sula, Tober­mory, Lion’s Head, Wiar­ton, Hep­worth and Shal­low Lake are presently in the plan­ning stages of “Snow-A-Rama ‘77”. Last year “SnowA-Rama” raised ap­prox­i­mately $11,000.00 for crip­pled chil­dren.

- The Bruce Penin­sula Plan­ning Board de­cided to sup­port lo­cal mu­nic­i­pal­i­ties in their at­tempt to re­tain the CNR line be­tween Park Head and Wiar­ton.
