Williamsdale News with Margaret Reid

Good morning everyone and I hope you had lots of visitors on Halloween night.

We were very pleased to have 17 little trick or treat visitors. It is so nice to see the little folks having fun.

My brother Jimmie and I used to enjoy dressing up and going trick or treating so much when we were children.

One year, a former schoolteacher, the late Mrs. Archie Moore, held a Halloween party for the school children at her home with lots of games and treats. That was a big event for children growing up in the country.

Wendy Reid prepared a delicious supper on Saturday for the family. Those who had supper with Wendell, Wendy and me were Wayne Reid of Pugwash, Brent and Charlene Reid of Hantsport. Wendy is a very good cook, and she likes to prepare family suppers.

Margo Patriquin and children, Logan and Lexie Patriquin of Collingwood, were supper guests on Sunday with Mervyn and Mary Esther Smith and Blaine Smith.

Wayne Reid of Pugwash and Margaret Reid accompanied Bruce and Lorna Stewart of Millvale to Moncton recently, where the Ladies kept an appointment with Dr. Andrew Clark at the Moncton City Hospital.

We were very pleased to have a visit from my niece, Margaret Lynds of Truro, one day last week. We haven’t saw her for a couple of years so I hardly recognized her. Margaret and Scott’s daughter, Hannah, has just started her first year in college, so they are facing the empty nest syndrome. Margaret and Scott are both still working so that will help take up the time.

Capt. Max Snow of Springhill was the speaker for the church service in the Millvale Baptist Church on Sunday. I was sorry to miss the service as I am having trouble with a bad hip. I guess that is one of the penalties of growing old.

Well folks, that is all the news for now from our small community, but I hope there’ll be more next time.
