We were saddened to learn of the death of Lillian Waugh on Monday. Her funeral was on Wednesday in Amherst at Furlong-Jones Chapel. She was a very special lady, always ready to help everyone and when she joined a group she gave her best. Her sister, Emma Boyd, came from Saint John, N.B. to make arrangements, leaving her husband in the hospital. Emma is the only living sister in this family. The committal was in the Leicester Cemetery. Several of Emma's friends from Saint John came down for the funeral. Bernice Black was one who came from Saint John, stopping to visit Wallace Hollis following the funeral. Also visiting Wallace were Helen and Robert Black, Brookdale.
Diane Wood came from Moncton to take Elda to her appointment on Wednesday.

School has started so the yellow buses are back again. Good luck to the students as they start a new school year.
Mabel Lowther came on Friday bringing fresh cucumbers and tomatoes for pickles and chow. While Vivian was making her chow she realized she didn't have enough onions. She sent John to store to buy some but there were none so I suggested calling a neighbor, Olive Jackson. Sure enough, Olive said come and help yourself. Now that is what it is like when you live in the country, there is always someone to help you out. We are so blessed to live in a sharing and caring community.
Lights are on at the new home of Peter Dickie. They have moved a home just across the road from mine, and I think that spot should be named Dickieville as it is next to the Dickie's Meat Shop and the other Dickie families.
I was able to go to the exhibition parade on Saturday afternoon. It was very nice and so many people stopped to say hello. I wasn't to the exhibition but would have liked to gone to the bake off to cheer on our Journal editor. I am sure it was a fun time with Roger White as MC. This is the first year in my memory that we were blessed with no rain during the week and a perfect day for a parade, sure different than last week.
