Ralph Burke R.C.N.V.R. Honoured by Reaboro Church

  A very happy Friendship Hour was held at the home of Mr. and Mrs. H. G. Burke, on Sunday evening last by the congregation of Reaboro Baptist Church.
  During the evening Sto. 1 Burke, R.C.N.V.R. of Kingston was presented with a lovely brush and comb set and a smart edition of the New Testament. The address was read by the pastor, Mr. Alvin Porteous and the presentation was made by Lorne Thurston. Ralph made a neat reply in appreciation of the gift and of the warm Christian fellowship of his many friends, Ralph expects to be posted to Cornwallis N.S.
  A quaint air of happy comradeship prevailed throughout the evening when an impromptu program was enjoyed with Keith Morden, pianist, Gordon Burke, trumpeter and Bob Reeds assisting in various ways.

This card is part of a larger collection of World War II personnel clippings. The project began in 1944 at the Lindsay Library. The intent was to gather together as much information as possible on the military record and the service of people from the Town of Lindsay and the County of Victoria (now Kawartha Lakes) who served in the war. To that end, during the years 1944, 1945, and 1946, members of the public donated photographs and updated information about their loved ones. Both library staff and the public saved and donated newspaper clippings. Some of the files contain great amounts of detail, while others have just a name.
