50 YEARS AGO – JAN­UARY 12, 1967

Wiarton Echo - - PAST AND PRESENT -

- Wiar­ton’s first Cen­ten­nial Baby ar­rived on the scene at the Bruce Penin­sula and District Me­mo­rial Hos­pi­tal on Fri­day, Jan­uary 6th, 1967. A son was born to Mr. and Mrs. Burt Liver­ance (nee Noble) of Wiar­ton, weigh­ing 7 pounds, eight ounces. The par­ents have named the baby Ter­rance Conrad.

- Progress looks bright for Wiar­ton, Mayor Clifton Tay­lor said in his in­au­gu­ral ad­dress to Wiar­ton’s 1967 Coun­cil on Mon­day evening. The Bruce Penin­sula is still in its in­fancy and we are lucky that Wiar­ton is the ‘Gate­way to the Penin­sula’. As the Penin­sula grows as a sum­mer play­ground, so will Wiar­ton. What is good for the Penin­sula – is good for Wiar­ton, he pointed out.

- Ge­orge Wat­son has re­turned home from the Gen­eral and Marine Hos­pi­tal, Owen Sound. Ge­orge had to have an eye re­moved. He is back at this old job of ring­ing the town bell and tak­ing care of the flag on top of the town hall. Ge­orge is not “bach­ing it” any more. Since his re­turn he has been stay­ing at the An­chor Inn and brags to any­one who will lis­ten, about his land­lady’s abil­ity to cook.
