A few Clippings from the Victoria Order of Nurses ( VON)

After their parents death, sisters Hazel and Gladysl, (who never married) lived together in the old family home on Lake Ave West. Hazel became a registered nurse and the sisters lovingly kept all their mother’s millinery sundries and later donated the collection to the Beckwith and Carleton Place Heritage Museum. A large portion of Hazel’s estate was willed to the Victorian Order of Nurses in Carleton Place, and as a tribute, the former V.O.N. building was named Hazel House with a portrait of her and her sister hung in the foyer. This is the corner of Wright and Campbell Street in Carleton Place.

Miss Bloom was the local nurse in the mid fifties She stayed with Mr. and Mrs MacIntosh who lived on the corner of George and St. Paul St. I was totally devastated when she was moved to another town, very sweet caring and lovely person .
