June Dalgity 1999 Almonte Gazette Clippings and Comments

December 10, 2020  Âˇ 

I found this gem today and thought it was a good one for TBT. This is the Almonte Gazette staff in the mid 1990s – from left Gena
Gibson, me, Debora Dekok, June Dalgity, Kerrine Lyons and Jeff Maguire. I believe this was the staff photo for our Christmas supplement. Good times!

When you talk about the Almonte Gazette that once rolled out every week, chances are the name of Joan Dalgity might come up. One would say she was the chief cook and bottle washer that kept that paper going as she was known to be the editor, reporter, photographer and sometimes even the advertising manager. For 18 years she worked there and finally in 1999 she decided to retire.

Would she miss dealing and chatting with the local merchants and figuring out who was who in the photos that rolled on to her desk nameless? As an avid curler and golfer she had no issues handing over her position over to Marjory McBride as advertising manager. McBride was no novice having built up the Arnprior paper’s weekend edition and also did advertising for the Carleton Place Canadian for a year.

One time editor Joe Banks gave June her initial job at the Gazette as he knew she would be great even though she didn’t think so. One incident that stuck out in her mind was when a summer storm drove the paper’s staff down to the basement under the Gazette’s office. One could imagine that the terrors that old basement might have held was far more scary than the tornado that was supposed to be rolling through.

June Dalgity retired December 17, 1999 and sadly passed away in 2005

John Dalgity photo of his mum June

Corey LoganThere wasn’t a sole in Almonte who didn’t know her and didn’t love her! Amazing how one woman could be loved that much- pretty incredible.-You were definitely blessed with an amazing mom. She sets the bar pretty high

Mariel VaughanYour mom was such a nice person and had a great laugh! Maria has great memories of hanging out with “Nora and June” when she visited Almonte. She is missed by many.

Karen BiscegliaLoved knowing her and working my very first job with her!!! Beautiful person…lots of laughs at the “Supe”!

Jane YoungAs soon as this picture appeared on my screen I smiled…..June was so special.

The June Dalgity Icebreaker bonspiel is the first bonspiel of the new curling season where we gather members from our various leagues to come together for a day long bonspiel to curl, eat, laugh and just have a good ole time, just as June would have it!
After the day’s event of this total points spiel, the grand winner for the second year in a row was the team of Cecil DuBois, Brent LePage and Denny Jones. Presenting the trophy are members of Junes family, Alison, Christine and John.
Thank You to everyone who curled and volunteered in this it was a fantastic day, and hope to see everyone back again in 2019.

I would like to thank everyone for helping to identify the 1970s photos from the Carleton Place and Beckwith Heritage Museum. We have about 18 photos left, and we have identified over 70% of them thanks to you.

I have seen a lot of funny photos and thanks to you recognized a lot of people from families past, but yesterday I thought this comment was quite the story I would love to hear more about– or maybe not??

The lad on the right was identified was Billy McGregor who lived on McArthur Ave “who put a hole in Kory’s armpit with a couch leg”

Now that is a story that will travel Lanark County for years and be told to generations to come as far as I am concerned!

Anyone want to elaborate on this story– or is it one best kept under lock and key?

Maybe it’s best to bury it in history…

Orm Giles thinks it may be Ed Timmons who lived on the Timmons farm (hwy 7) where the berry farm is today . What can you tell me about these photos or the man himself.

 

Mike Closs said this is Eddie Mckittrick and his horse “Nook”. Eddie McKittrick, did have a palomino horse like that. He lived on the Rosetta road about 3 miles outside of Lanark. I think he passed away about 1978.

 

Kt Dale– I was thinking about Eddie the other day!! It would have been late 1980 when Eddie died. He used to pass by the house we lived in twice a day. One day he picked up myself and my little girl who was two at the time and she was born in Dec 1978. I always thought it would be nice to travel by horse and buggy.

North Lanark District Women-Ramsay Women`s Institute Branch?

Would this group be part of the Ramsay Women`s Institute Branch? Or the Lanark 4H Club?

History of the Ramsay Women`s Institute Branch


Ramsay Women’s Institute was formed in Ramsay Township, Ontario, Canada in 1944 with 29 members. With amalgamation in 1998, Ramsay Township became part of the newly formed municipality of the Town of Mississippi Mills.

Nearly 70 years later, Ramsay Women’s Institute continues to provide a friendly environment for self enrichment, education and community involvement for all women 16 years and older. Today’s  branch of 20 members actively supports projects locally, nationally and internationally, and continues to preserve the rich local history through itsTweedsmuir Histories.

For newcomers who wish to meet their neighbours or become involved in their new community, Ramsay Women’s Institute is a friendly starting point. New members are always welcome. The W.I. is a unique in that there are no religious or political ties.

Ramsay Women’s Institute is part of the North Lanark District of Eastern Ontario within the Federated Women’s Institutes of Ontario. The Women’s Institute was formed in 1897 in Ontario by Adelaide Hoodless. She was motivated by the tragic death of her son from typhoid fever due to contaminated milk. She encouraged women to organize and educate themselves in food preparation and household hygiene to improve their  standard of living.

Remembering Helen Wilson of Carleton Place

Standard

Photo from the Carleton Place Canadian files from the Carleton Place and Beckwith Heritage Museum

Years ago Vivian Brown wrote a story in the Carleton Place Canadian about her Aunt Helen who had died from cancer. Vivivan, like myself, believe that  words are the last thing to disappear, and she wanted everyone to remember her Aunt’s stories, laughter, and even the five dollar bills she used to tuck in her families red Christmas stockings.

Aunt Helen never really had  a family of her own, instead she taught primary children for over 40 years and lived with Vivian’s Grandmother.Her fondest memories was being with her aunt at her Grandmother’s house and listening to the never ending stories of her ancestors. No matter how man stories Helen told she always stopped to hear the view points of the younger ones.

Her beloved aunt lived the Christmas message all throughout her life, and her needs were simple, and she shared what she had with others. Helen missed her various family members when they did not visit, and spoiled them on any occasion she could. As Helen approached death she took the time to label her belongings with individual names so everyone could have a cherished memory.

Vivian concluded that because of Aunt Helen she hoped she could make a difference in life by listening to a child or sharing with someone in need. Aunt Helen’s  convictions should be in everyone’s lives to give unconditional love and take the time to enjoy people. She knew the meaning of life was to find your gift and the purpose of life is to give it away.

 

“Remember that the happiest people are not those getting more, but those giving more”.
