In 1915 The Mississippi Golf Club was formed and acquired the old Patterson farm and stone farmhouse on the Appleton road.
Ray Paquette– Wayne was a lot time employee of Mr. Asseltine’s Rexall Drug Store who later became a salesman in the furniture department at Eaton’s Bayshore where I would run into him often, stopping to exchange news on people from Carleton Place we knew in common.
Linda Gallipeau-Johnston– I have called Wayne himself Mr. Asseltine in my mind whenever I see him.
Marilyn White– We ran into many times. Always so pleasant
Blaine Cornell– the actual yardage of the hole was 156 yards. The hole no longer exists.
Allan Wing– I’ve seen him in Kanata shopping, he lives in Munster Hamlet
Joann Voyce He married Doreen Coombs of Ottawa who had a cottage on McNeely’s Shore many years ago
Sandy France This was when a beer was 25 cents. I joined the club in 1954 and I think the protocol was to put up a list, people would voluntarily donate the 25 cents and put their name on a list. The same procedure exists today, except folks voluntarily donate 5 or 6 dollars. The club usually has about 20 holes in one a year. That hole no longer exists because the course added 25 acres of land in 1972 and revamped the entire course. I have an air photo of the course as it existed back then.
