50 YEARS AGO – JANUARY 12, 1967
- 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.
