Letter of Praise From A Member

DATED  DECEMBER 26  2016

 

 

Hope Agricultural Heritage Club

 

Att. Earl Ashby  President,

 

As a member of the Club over the past few years, it has been interesting to receive the annual club Horizon news letter, and on reviewing the contents of your recent letter, I would like to congratulate you and the members  for again reviewing  the years pass events and achievement.

It was  interesting to read of the endless time and dedication that is required in restoring the donated historical antiques to their original state.

It is always interesting to note the winners of the annual tractor draw and the support that you get from the surrounding areas.

I was  really impressed with the  report on the history of the tobacco industry in   the local area, as it was a time that I can relate to, as I had two ten age sons that i used to drive them to work on one of the various farms and I can recall the work involved due to the condition of their clothes and the smell of the nicotine.

The industry was certainly at the mercy of the weather, where the year’s crop was a loss or success.

Well, Earl once again many thanks to your dedication and your  determination to  make known the pass  history of the Agricultural area.

Wishing  you  much success in your ticket sales in the coming year .

Looking forward to your next edition of the HORIZON.

GLEN COTTER

23 Clifton Rd, Port Hope
