Harvest festival held at hall

The Harvest Festival held in the Leicester Hall and hosted by the Happy Neighbors Club on Wednesday was a huge success. About 50 ladies enjoyed a free potluck dinner, thanks to the club. After the dinner a lady from Honolulu arrived and auctioned off the articles donated by the businesses of the surrounding areas. All left delighted with their purchases and looking forward to next year.

Sincere sympathy is extended to Emma Boyd, Saint John, N.B., on the death of her husband.

Emma's husband is the last living member of his family as well. The funeral was held on Monday in Saint John.
