The White Fence, issue #26

October, 2004 Editorial Dear friends, I had originally promised you this issue of your newsletter by June 2004… but you may have noticed that we are now in October! I had not intended to be so late… the sandpipers made me do it! So, without any further delay, Part 2 of Mrs. Norma Campbell’s copy… Continue reading…

The White Fence, issue #25

May, 2004 Editorial Dear friends, This newsletter will take you into Sackville’s past in the present tense! Let me explain. The first draft that I received was a handwritten copy of the Town of Sackville’s past business history (appropriately written in the past tense!) and entitled: “Reminiscences of a Busy Sackville — circa 1810 to… Continue reading…

The White Fence, issue #24

January, 2004 Editorial Dear friends, It takes time and tools to dig a well. But the clear waters that you find at the bottom is what maintains life and keeps us all going. Keep reading and you will discover how and why the past eight years of digging into Tantramar’s history have gone by so… Continue reading…

The White Fence, issue #23

November, 2003 Editorial Dear friends, Did you think I had gone missing? Well, no… it’s just that chasing history often comes into conflict with life in the present! The present (which as of this moment is now the past seven months!) has been very busy, and, unfortunately, Tantramar history has had little to do with… Continue reading…

The White Fence, issue #22

March, 2003 Editorial Dear friends, You must have all wondered where I’ve been since last Christmas! Well, I’m quite sure that you won’t be surprised when I tell you that I could not find the White Fence. It’s been buried in snow since Santa flew off my roof last December (laughing quite hilariously I might… Continue reading…

The White Fence, issue #21

January, 2003 Editorial Dear friends, As we hunker down for Winter, this issue of The White Fence hopes to entertain you (we hope!) with some historic biquering (of sorts!) and eavesdropping via fascinating family correspondence. In our last issue, I had informed you about the treasures Marcie Fullerton had dug from the rich Tantramar mine…. Continue reading…

The White Fence, issue #20

November, 2002 Editorial Dear friends, Well, another winter is at our doorstep and now is the time to start thinking once again of that cozy spot in our favorite chair with a good story to read (preferably by a hot fire!). And we have those stories for you here at the ole’ White Fence as… Continue reading…

The White Fence, issue #19

May, 2002 Editorial Dear friends, Welcome to another journey along Tantramar’s historic White Fence where you can read young Miss Morton’s understanding of Middle Sackville’s history in 1914 (studiously ignoring that the first great war was igniting in other regions of the world in that fateful year). When I first became interested in Sackville’s history,… Continue reading…

The White Fence, issue #18

Editorial Dear Friends, Well, Santa has already come and gone (and he did find the cookies by the way… ), the new year is here and deep snows cover our lawns, weigh down the evergreens and fill our driveways! So, since shoveling is not in the cards today, it’s time to put a few more… Continue reading…

The White Fence, issue #17

December, 2001 Editorial Dear Friends, As I gaze out the window to the world outside, I think of Santa who, in slightly more than two weeks, will pace the floor of our kitchen wondering where in heck I hid the cookies! But he won’t have reindeer ruining the tiles of my roof; oh no! this… Continue reading…
