New Salem -
Hi again from downtown New Salem, I hope you've all had a wonderful week. I was just getting used to the idea that spring might actually be on its way and, what happens? We get another snowstorm. Unbelievable!
Last week, Ethel Slocum of Masstown visited with her daughter Ellen Johnston and her husband Floyd for a few days. She also attended the 72nd anniversary party for Ethel and Earl Clarke.
Stanley Johnston of Truro spent March break visiting with his parents Ellen and Floyd Johnston.
Dawn Crawford of Truro spent the weekend visiting with her parents Ina and Doug Spicer.
On Saturday, Arden and Hilda Fletcher, Dara Stronge, Bud Collins, Duncan and Louise Spicer, Donnie Fletcher and I attended the pancake breakfast in Joggins. It was an awesome breakfast!
