Social at Killean
Galt Evening Reporter newspaper for March 27th 1885.
annual social in connection with the West Presbyterian Church of Puslinch was
held at Killean schoolhouse on Friday evening last. Notwithstanding the severity of the night,
a very great gathering enjoyed themselves during the evening. The meeting was organized by the
appointment of Mr. Duncan Ferguson as chairman, and after the playing of a
martial strain from the bagpipes of Mr. McLellan, the Killean piper, the
entertainment was opened by very interesting speeches from Messrs. Thomas
Cowan of Galt, Dickie and Cunningham of Hespeler, Gilchrist of Killean, and
Archibald Marshall of Morriston. These
gentlemen acquitted themselves with great satisfaction to the audience. The Hespeler choir with their elegant
organ, at intervals, contributed greatly to the enjoyment of the
evening. The local and vocal young
ladies, Misses Gilchrist, Bond, Scott, and McCormick, along with Messrs.
Valick and Scott, from Morriston, made the meeting a very pleasant night
indeed. Killean has ever been famous
for the culinary supplies furnished by its lady contributors, and this
occasion was no exception.
