Jenn Nolan As I was reminded by my mother this morning , ‘ a few years ago’ my wonderful mother brought me into this world before the doctor arrived and it was Trudi and another nurse who delivered me!

I really didn’t know Trudi Dickie that well. All I know is she was a no nonsense smart woman that raised one heck of a great family and worked her tail off for Carleton Place. I will remember the first thing Trudi said to me in 1982 for the rest of my life.

Trudi came with Melba Barker to my home in 1982 to give my late husband and I a heritage certificate. She firmly shook my hand and told me mayor Melba Barker asked her to come with her because they heard I was trouble.

Trudi and Melba Barker broke out laughing and I just shook my head and laughed. Things have not changed in 2018– and I am so proud of these 2 women that were part of only 6 women to grace the council chambers of Carleton Place since 1901. I would like to think she would be smiling at all the women running for the October 22 election. This is for you Trudi!

Please add your comments and I will document them. Thank you.

Linda – sorry didn’t remember this being so badly out of focus – someone on the street at the time took the pic. Trudy stopped in at my Mom’s on occasion and away they went walking.
