Dalkeith 200th a great success
The Review, July 27, 2011 – DALKEITH – An estimated 2,000 people gathered in the small village this past weekend to help celebrate 200 years of history. According to Tish Nicholson, recreation programs coordinator for the Township of North Glengarry, everyone is “over the moon” with how the birthday bash went. A total of 225 barbecue chicken dinners were sold and Scotiabank agreed to match the funds dollar for dollar, meaning some $2,200 was raised. The Dalkeith Historical Society has already raised the funds it needs to purchase the chapel in the village.

Matthew Stevens, minister of Trinity United Church, where the food bank is housed.

Please pay The Review
The Review, July 29, 1921 – VANKLEEK HILL – During the last few days a large number of small accounts varying in amounts from 50 cents to $5 have been sent out by The Review. These small accounts total over $300 and some of them are owing since 1920. The cost of collecting these is a relatively very great convenience if those who owe these small accounts would kindly pay at once. The mailing costs alone are relatively enormous.
