Alma Churches used by Montrose United following fire

     On Sunday past Donald Hardy told me that in 1944 when the Montrose United Church burned the Alma Baptist Church and Holy Trinity Alma Anglican Church offered their churches to the Montrose congregation until they were able to rebuild.  The churches were used alternately.   Donald said he had fond memories of coming to Alma and the generosity of the congregations of both these churches.
