Each year when Iona McQuary renews her Trail Times subscription, we look forward to her correspondence because she always includes a lovely hand written note. Iona is likely our oldest subscriber and certainly one of our most loyal readers. “We began subscribing in 1948,” Iona wrote last summer when she was 99 years. Her twin sons were delivery boys in 1955, and a great-grandson delivered the paper in Montrose 15-or-so years ago. “The twins each had their weddings and photos in the Trail Times in July 1963 and May 1964. My hubby and I were in colour in 2010 for our 70th anniversary on Aug. 2,” she shared. “My eyesight is getting dim but I still look forward to getting my paper on my doorstep. It feels like a visit from a friend.” Iona turned 100 on Wednesday, April 11. Her family hosted a birthday celebration and well wishers filled the Montrose hall. Happy 100th Birthday Iona!
Happy 100th Birthday Iona!
