Lizard skin?

I always appreciate the older notebooks with fancy illustrated covers. Take for example, these notebooks, c. 1920s, which contained minutes from the Lakeville Corner Methodist/United Church Ladies Aid (Sheffield Pastoral Charge). Of course you can still purchase scribblers with pictures on the cover (Justin Beiber anyone?) but come on, you can’t get much better than a lizard skin motif! We’ll...

Archives Recipe of the Month

Port Mouton may mean Port ‘Sheep’ en franςais but this South Shore village’s true calling has always been seafood. In 1965, the United Church Women put out an autographed album of recipes, for all your maritime cooking and baking needs. March may not be lobster season but I say there is always time for this chowder.  It’s perfect for any fishermen and there friends, and with so many lobsters making their way into this pot you’ll be sure to have room for seconds…or thirds.
