Welcome home Donald and Jean. Rev. Donald and his wife, Jean, are back home and residing in Aylesford. Don hasn’t retired and is available should the need arise. He has served in a number of churches.
Recent visitors of Don and Marilyn Helpard were Don’s brother, Junior, and his wife, Pauline, from Ottawa. They stayed for eight days doing a lot of visiting, including seeing many relatives and fishing mackerel in Annapolis. A birthday party in Torbrook with lots of music and good food was enjoyed by all.
Speaking of birthdays, the granddaddy of Morristown, John E. Palmer, celebrated his 90th birthday before a packed community hall in Morristown. Children and grandchildren entertained us all and the food – wow.
Sorry to report the passing of June Blackburn, longtime resident of Waterville and, more recently, Berwick. She was hospitalized when sickness set in. A Christian woman born in Black Rock, she enjoyed life to the fullest, especially her family and loved what she was doing, including square dancing and picking apples – she picked 42 bins of apples in one day, all the growers wanted her to do their picking. Both June and her husband loved to do quilting. I have one of those quillos (a quillo is a quilt and pillow combined). We extend our deepest sympathy to her husband, Raymond, and children Eugene (Wanda) and Jane Pearson (Donald).
