On this day in Our Islands History

In 1974, the Central Cooperative factory in Grindstone, was completely destroyed by fire. The fire ravaged one fish factory, two herring smokers and five other buildings. The loss was evaluated at $200,000 and put 175 workers out of work.

In 1987, Azade and Louise Bougeois celebrated their 75 wedding anniversary. Mr Bourgeois was age 95 years and his wife was aged 94 years.
