Compiled by Grace Haldenby
In 1927 the W.A. minutes note that no delegates were able to
go from Orono to the Diocesan W.A. Annual Meeting in Toronto.
They asked the delegates from the Newcastle branch to come and
give them a report. It is interesting to note that from 1920 to
1930 St. Saviour’s had no lay members of Synod. The parish
of Clarke was represented by lay members from St. George’s,
Newcastle only. Diocesan meetings at this time lasted three or
At the vestry meeting of 1926, Mr. E. Morton gave a detailed account
of the cost of putting a new roof on the church. The total cost
was $309. Of which $200 had to be borrowed. Mr.R.H.Allen addressed
the meeting in regard to the treasurer’s house having been
broken into and $10.00 of church funds stolen. At the vestry meeting
of 1928, it was decided to remove the trees from the front of
the church and plant evergreens instead.
