History of St. Saviour's, Orono,
Compiled by Grace Haldenby
1957: An attempt was made to revive the Sunday school in August
of 1957 by Mrs. Grant, the W.A. President. During the meeting
of the mothers, the children went out on the lawn under the supervision
of Carol Grant and Lynn Prust. However by 1959 all attempts had
failed, no Sunday school had been started and their funds went
into the general account.
In 1958 the W.A. secretary Irene Murray put a note in the minute
book for the October meeting “first meeting I’ve missed
since taking office in 1942”. She was secretary-treasurer
until 1974, then treasurer until her death in 1983.
At the Thanksgiving service in 1959, the Rev. Gordon Bruton was
the guest speaker. A local boy, he had served at Port Perry and
St. Agnes’, Long Branch before going to All Souls’,
Willowdale in 1951. He retired in1979, died the next year at age
65 and is buried in the Orono cemetery.
