Remembering

Nov 1, 2013: "Just read the Remembrance Day piece on the cover of the Newsletter with regards to George Price. Before April of this year we had never heard of George Price. We had an opportunity to visit Europe in April and the first war memorial that we visited was that of George Price in Mons, Belgium. The memorial is on, or very near, the site where Pte. Price was killed. From now on Pte. Price will be in the forefront of our remembrances at future Remembrance Day services. We also did a Flanders Battle Field tour which included “The Brooding Soldier” at Vancouver Corner; Tyne Cot Cemetery; The Menin Gate; Essex Farm and the dressing station where John McCrae wrote “In Flanders Fields”; Vimy Ridge and Beaumont Hamel and numerous other sites. It truly makes one appreciate what we have today and what these men had gone through; to walk in the tunnels and trenches at Vimy Ridge and Ypres or to stand in a cement dressing station at Essex Farm; to be standing in a field looking at a picture taken during WW1 and compare that scene to today. This was truly an emotional few days for us and gives Remembrance Day a whole new meaning. The next time we hear “In Flanders Fields” it will bring the Essex Farm dressing station to mind. I know that from now on, every Remembrance Day will bring the images of The Flanders Battle Fields memorials back with emotional clarity. We have lots of pictures and when we look at them, we can still feel the emotions we felt at the time." Bruce and June Steadman

Citizenship, volunteerism, and random acts of kindness are deeds completed every day by selfless people around the world.

Morris Williams - 60 years a Firefighter

Morris Williams - 60 years a firefighter for Uniacke and District Volunteer Firefighter - retires December 31, 2015. THANK YOU Morris for your dedication to Mount Uniacke, your family, your friends, your community and to the Firefighting Service. On Saturday, January 16, firefighters and special guests braved a mighty snowstorm to pay tribute to one of our own. Morris Wiliams joined the fire department when he was 17 years old and was actively involved in the fire department for 60 years. Let that sink in for a minute folks.....60 years of dedicated, active service to his fire department and community! This is an amazing achievement and Morris deserves the well-earned recognition he received at his banquet and open house the following day. Among the guest speakers, Morris was also presented with accolades and certificates from the Province of N.S. and the Municipality of East Hants, to name a few. As most firefighters grow older, many of them choose to take less active roles in the department. Morris chose not to do that and answered the call for help at all hours of the day and night. Morris had a knack for looking as fresh as a daisy on every call, especially the ones in the middle of the night. On his final day with the department on December 31, 2015, Morris still responded to three calls that day! Morris, everyone in the fire department wishes you well in your retirement. Thank you for being a mentor to many firefighters over the years and for helping to shape and build the fire department into what it has become today.

DIMOCK FAMILY INFORMATION

While looking through some of mom's old papers I came across the attached story. I remembered that we found the original papers in a trunk in the attic of the old abandoned Dimock residence in the Old Mine Road. Mom copied the story to this paper in the late forties. The original is long gone, but this was copied word for word from the original which was in very poor condition. I do not know how factual this data is, but I found it interesting. Use the info as you see fit. Don Cunningham
