Remember when:

*Ron Smith, a milkman who lived in Lochlin, reported having seen a flying saucer as he was driving along the Ingoldsby Road back in 1972.

*John Boyd and Ray Carpenter had photography stores in town. Boyd was at 230 Kent St. and Carpenter located at 77 Russell St.

*The Villa Restaurant in Oakwood had a catchy little slogan informing customers that "We are a little out of town, but our food is way out of sight."

*A good balsam log or solid spruce cottage could be had in Haliburton County for as little as $1200. Those were the days when a cottage didn't cost nearly as much as a home.

*"Billy" Carlisle was manager of Neil's Shoe Store that was located on Kent Street and was as well-known as the business itself that was founded in 1865.

*A highly respected gentleman about town, by the name of Jasper Foreman, served as Sheriff?

*Lawrence Pritchard was Minden's last local Police officer before the OPP were hired to cover the area in and around Minden.

*Back in 1934 Mr. J. E. "Ernie" Anderson was the Crown's Attorney for Victoria & Haliburton counties.

*In 1933-34 Kay Richards (Hicks) was 2nd vice-president of Lindsay Collegiate Girls' Athletics.

*Lindsay's two most famous Irishmen were Father Meagher of St. Mary's and Ernie Riley, a local Orangeman. Two closer friends could never be found!
