A fit­ting, grow­ing trib­ute

The Glengarry News - - News -

The Ed­i­tor, I note in the Au­gust 8 edi­tion a pic­ture of a tree plant­ing in hon­our of Hugh P. MacMil­lan, done by the His­tor­i­cal So­ci­ety. Hugh made an enor­mous con­tri­bu­tion to pre­serv­ing the her­itage of Glen­garry. Al­most 20 years ago the Glen­garry Pi­o­neer Mu­seum hon­oured Hugh with one of the first of its Pi­o­neer awards and planted a tree in his hon­our on the Mu­seum grounds where it flour­ishes. He was a founder of the Mu­seum 55 years ago. With all of the de­for­esta­tion go­ing on in Glen­garry it is pleas­ing to see that hon­our­ing an im­por­tant Glen­gar­rian in a well-de­served man­ner is lead­ing to new growth.
