Geneology Reasearch

We received the following message through the website. Can anyone help with this book or did anyone know Maggie’s Grandparents? Any information greatly appreciated and we will pass any information on if we receive it. Please contact us through the Contact page on the website.

Hello, I will be visiting Nova Scotia for the first time. My parents moved from NS to Alberta in 1953. I am looking for a copy of:
Dear Reader : The History of Fall River and Windsor Junction Paperback – 1989 by The Friendly Group Seniors History Club (Author)
I believe my grandparents Dr Roy Lindsay and Gladys Keough lived in Windsor Junction and Fall River. I think her father was the station
manager at Windsor Junction. Do you know if there is a place where this book is still for sale?
We will be in the area early-mid July. I am looking forward to visiting the places my parents, Dr Donald Lindsay and Jean (Phinney) spoke of.
Thank you,
Maggie Lindsay

Windsor Junction Community Centre

We’re Growing!

The Windsor Junction Community Centre needs to update and expand its current facilities to keep pace with the growing demand from young families in our Community. Expansion of this facility offers
tremendous benefit including:

  • greater accessibility to members of our community with special needs by providing levelled
  • access to washroom facilities and wider entrances to the programming area
  • greater security for our day camp participants and staff by providing indoor space for inclement weather
  • greater separation of programming space for our younger day camp participants
  • quiet and clean treatment areas with dedicated first aid space
  • increased opportunities for year-round use of the facility
