Bridgewater Bulletin, 1945
Tuesday being Victory Day was well celebrated in this community. In the morning Rev. W. Minke preached an inspiring sermon in Mt. Calvary Lutheran Church to a large congregation. In the afternoon both Lutheran and United bells rang for half an hour and then a big parade included light young men on horseback, bicycles, twelve cars, two trucks, one span of horses, one single horse with truck wagon, all beautifully trimmed, loaded with happy people. In the evening a crowd gathered in the United Church and sang praise unto God for two hours. In the good news that has come ,we sympathize with the relatives of two of our young men, Tpr. Keith MacKay and Pte. Clarence MacKay, who have laid down their lives for their friends.
