Oral Histories: The People of St. Paul 1

In Their Own Words: Residents of St. Paul describe what life was like in the town's formative years:

"It was a life of hard work and many difficult years, especially during the Depression, the dry years and the destruction of crops by hail in 1936. It's that year Arthur bought the first tractor on rubber wheels (the first in the district). The joys and sorrows of family life were shared by all with much love. Everyone has fond memories of picnics, wild fruit picking, wonderful evenings playing cards and ball games."

— Pauline Willerth-Gamache
