Fairfield East, Feb 25th, 1925
The auction sale of Claude Laforty was well attended and many from Brockville were there. The stock and implements brought extra good prices in spite of the sale being held over a day on account of the rains.
On Tuesday night the neighbours were entertained by Mr. and Mrs. C. Laforty, the evening being spent in games, music and dancing. The neighbours reported a splendid time and were grateful to their host and hostess for the entertainment. Miss Dora Barton, pianist, and Mr. Rowsome, violinist, furnished the music.
