Dear Grace:
  I received the 300 cigarettes sent by the club today and thanks a million. They were a God-send as I am going on nine days leave tomorrow and I just had about a hundred cigs to take with me. You don't know how glad I was to get them. You girls have really looked after me well in the way of cigs and I really appreciate it. Maybe I'll be seeing you soon. Thanks again. All the best of luck.

  A very pretty wedding took place at the home of the bride’s parents, 76 Colborne St. W., on Saturday, Sept. 1st, when Audrey Eleanor, eldest daughter of Mr. and Mrs. R. Hartwick, became the bride of Donald G. Corley, son of Mr. and Mrs. G. Corley, of Lindsay. Rev. H. C. Wolfraim, of Queen St. United Church officiated.
  The bride entered the room on the arm of her father, and looked lovely in a gown of fuchsia, carrying with her a corsage of sweet peas.
  Following the ceremony, the young couple left on a motor trip to points west, and on their return will reside in Toronto.
  Gnr. Wilbert Hartwick, brother of the bridge, who recently returned from overseas, was in attendance for the wedding.

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.
