On April I st I happened to be in Welsh- pool just as the Government Fisheries Boat, Maces Bay was making fast at the breakwater. Somehow this put me in mind of April 1st, 1955 which was when the Welsphpool breakwater burned. Quite a difference in weather-April 1st, 1968, rather cold temperature and quite a bit of snow still remaining-April I st, 1955, ground bare of snow, mild and frost out of ground, several were busy preparing garden plots. Mr. and Mrs. Bernard McKay and daughter Pamela were recent visitors at the home of her parents, Mr. and Mrs. Robert Calder. The boys went hockeying at the Lady Dunn Arena again last week. They took a trouncing from Milltown-12-4 score. Sympathy is extended to Mrs. Harmon Townsend, son Douglas and family on the passing of Mr. Harmon Townsend at Char- lotte county Hospital on Wednesday, April 2nd. Mro Brian Morrisson was a guest of his aunt, Miss Lydie Brown this past week. Brian is attending the University of Maine and is visiting his parents, Mr. and Mrs. W. Morrisson of Eastport. Mr. and Mrs. Edwin Allingham and sons left on Thursday to visit friends and relatives in Maine and Massachusetts Mr. McCain and son Harold are spend- ing a few days at their summer home on the Island. Mr. McCain is from New Jer- sey, son Hal is attending school in Neb- raskao Best wishes to Mrs. Angus Newman who celebrated her 82nd birthday on April 2rid. We all missed out in this section on the Nova Scotia ferry-Portland hit the jackpot. Mr. Roy Calder has been visiting his parents, Mr. and Mrs. Nell Calder during his spring vacation. On the afternoon and evening of March 19th, the ladies St. Anne's Guild held their weekly meeting. At this meet- ing the ladies met at the home of Mrs. Robert (Millie) Allingham, and honored two members, Mrs. Leslie (Emma) Gough and Mrs. Manning (Corena) Mitchell, with a joint birthday party and presented them with a birthday cake made by Mrs. Lottie Hampton° They were also recipients of numerous useful and attractive gifts. The ladies of the Guild had been very busy quilting Mrs. Ray (Gussie) Finch's quilt and doing other sewing so that a little re- laxation in the form of a birthday party was enjoyed by all present and well earned. The Down East Minstrels, put on by the citizens of Lubec played to a capacity audience on Saturday evening, March 22nd and again Friday evening, March 28th and was much enjoyed by all. Just goes to show what we Down Easters can do if we've a mind to. We sincerely hope that this will be a yearly happening as we've heard rumored. The proceeds of these two evenings will go a long way on the March Of Nickels for the Band instruments. Why can't we do something like this here on the Island? Don't hide your light under a basket, get with it. Raise some money for a worthy cause, a nursing home or a hospital. How about that? On Friday, March 21st, Mrs. Clifford Calder and Mrs, Clinton Calder took a group of teen-agers from the Island to Woodland° At Woodland they joined a group of Teenagers under the supervision of Rev. Wendell Calder and proceeded by bus to Moncton for a week-end retreat. The retreat was sponsored by the Park- side Baptist Church, Moncton, of which Rev. Reginald Snell is pastor, and by Calvary Baptist Church, Moncton, Rev. Austin Calder pastor. Mrs. Clinton Calder, met them in Woodland Sunday evening and five of the Island young people re- turned home with her: Misses Valerie and Linda Calder, Mr. Beryl Brown, Mr. Stu- art Mitchell and Mr. Gordon Mitchell. The others: Miss Susan Chute, Miss Inez Corey, Miss Paula Calder and Mr. David Mills returned home with Mr. John New- man of Wilson's Beach, who accompanied the young people from Woodland to Moncton and return. Nice to see Mr. Raymond Calder is home after his long stay in hospital. Mr. Noel Mitchell who has been a sur- gical patient in Bangor had to return there for medical attention on Thursday. We are pleased to report that Noel is now in better health. Mr. and Mrs. Conrad Desautels of Bur- lington, Vermont, were recent guests of her father, Mr. O11o Calder and her sis- ter, Mrs. Alva Mitchell and Mr. Mitchell. Col. A. A. MacNichol and Mrs. Mac- Nichol attended a meeting of the Roose- velt Campobello International Park Com- mission held in Ottawa on the 27th, 28th, and 29th of March. On Thursday, March 28th we at the Park were very conscious of the fact that it had been just a year since Woodrow Mitchell had passed away. We miss Woody -he was always cheerful and courteous and was a popular guard. Sympathy is extended to Park Guard Andrew Martin on the death of his sister, Mrs. Genevieve Richardson. This past week we have noticed that Road Supervisor, Jack Fitzgerald and his road crew are busily engaged in clearing ditches and culverts and doing various other jobs readying the roads for summer traffic° Also surveyors are surveying the Bridge Road.

Mrs. Victor Newman has returned home from Montreal where she has been visiting her daughter, Judy. Mrs. Burnham Lank is home after be- ing a hospital patient in Oromoeto.
