9 November, 1984 THE QUODDY TIDES Page 35 Presented life memberships On Friday, October 5th at 2 p.m. a group of fifteen ladies, members of the Grand Manan Branch Legion Ladies Aux- iliary, gathered at the Grand Manan Nurs- ing Home to honour two Charter mem- bers of the Auxiliary with Life Member- ships. Bertha Boynton, age 87, and Edith Dakin, age 90, now residents of the home joined the Auxiliary in 1968 when it was granted its Charter. Both were active in Auxiliary work, whose main purpose is to raise funds for their Legion, until ill health forced them to become inactive. But their interest remains with their Auxiliary and thus they were honoured. Life Membership Certificates were given each by President Eileen Somers and Life Membership Pins were pinned on each by Bernice Thomas, Chairman of the Honours and Awards Committee. Members of their families were present for the presentations. WELSHPOOL (from page 34) Charlotte'County Hospital last week. Emma has had a long illness.
