Special visit


Penny McFarland got a present from Santa Claus when he paid a visit to local war brides at a special dinner at the Adventure Inn last night. 2006 is the 60th anniversary of war brides in Canada (1946 was the year the largest wave arrived at Pier 21 in Halifax), with six provinces, including Ontario, having proclaimed this the Year of the War Bride.
