The snowbirds have started to return home. Anne and Harold Stevens, Fenwick, returned home last week. Anne Stevens visited with Vivian Warwick on Monday morning.
Elda Lowther and Vivian Warwick, accompanied by Gwyn Lowther, Amherst, enjoyed dinner out on Wednesday. Gloria Dickinson, Amherst, visited with the Warwicks on Wednesday afternoon. She had been visiting the family of the late Judy Wood at the Oxford funeral home earlier.
The Friday evening country kitchen party at the Little River Baptist Church was well received. About 40 were in attendance and several guests blended their voices. Betty Adshade, Riverview, N.B., sang several solos, Harold Miller,who always is ready to help, played the guitar and sang, along with Gwyn Lowther and Vivian Warwick of the Travelers group. Organist Heather Reid had prepared songs for the audience to sing, Victor MacMormick accompanied himself on the piano and sang, and he and Vivian did a number as well. The Casey girls plus Vivian sang a number as well. The highlight of the evening was Dot Webb and husband Ronnie as he played the violin. Margaret Reid entertained with humorous jokes. This, along with food and fellowship, made a nice evening. Several folks remained to clean up and get ready for church on Sunday. This was much appreciated by caretaker Wilson Hunsley, as he is waiting a call to go to the hospital for surgery.
Get well wishes to all sick and shut-ins. Lillian Carter returned home from hospital on Sunday having spent the night in the hospital.
Sunday evening supper guests with Darrell and Sheila Thompson included Marion Thompson, Little River, Greg Thompson, Warren, and Randy Thompson. Vaughn MacDonald, Campbell River, B.C., called on the Thompsons Sunday morning. He was here to attend the funeral of his sister, the late Judy Wood. Sincere sympathy is extended to this family.
Betty and Wilfred Adshade, Riverview, were Friday evening callers on Doug and Ruby Kirkpatrick. Margaret Rossiter, Ont., was a recent caller at the Kirkpatricks.
Joyce Carsadden, Amherst, spent Sunday afternoon with her mother, Olive Jackson. Olive attends the family gathering at Chis Baker’s new home in Oxford on Saturday afternoon. The family has moved here from Edmonton. Welcome to all.
The Travelers were warmly welcomed at the St. David’s Presbyterian church in Springhill on Sunday evening as guest choir. A time of fellowship was enjoyed following despite the snowstorm.
Thought: If it weren’t for the last minute nothing would get done.
