Rev. Meggin King is rejoicing on the birth of a new granddaughter, Penelope Elyse, born to Brodie and Philip Decaire, Newmarket, Ont., on April 30. No doubt, their lucky Penny.

Reg and Sophie Briggs, Hamilton, Ont., spent a week visiting his father, Rollie Lockhart, and other friends and relatives. They returned home on Sunday.
A very successful Fashion Show was held on Thursday evening at the Curling Rink, with proceeds going to Calvary United Church, Port Howe. I understand the Cake Auction for HarbourFest, held at the Catholic Church on Friday, was another success.
On Tuesday, The NCMH Auxiliary took their turn hosting the Annual N.S. Association of Health Auxiliaries – Northern Regional Meeting, at the Legion, Pugwash.

I enjoyed a lovely meal at the Sandpiper Restaurant on Friday, along with Bill and Diana MacKay, compliments of Cecil and Margaret Morton, Ottawa. They are longtime friends of Bill and Diana, but they enjoy my news in the Citizen, so wanted to meet me, too. I do not have room to go into detail, but it was very enjoyable, and I have two new friends. Thanks you so much. Hugs.
Along with my usual callers, had lots of new visitors this week, those being: Marilyn Williams, Thelma Colbourne, Rev. Meggin King, Norma Mundle and Eleanor Conrad.
Daughter Denise treated me and some family members to lobster rolls, salads and cheesecake on Saturday, and a beautiful kitchen gift from them all, and later for a long three-hour car ride throughout North Wallace, Fox Harbour and Malagash. Places I did not know even existed. Very enjoyable.
