Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - April 25, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta THURSDAY, APKIL 25, 1946 That "Cowboy Dance'9 BRITISH BRIDES IMPRESSED BY WESTERN HOSPITALITY ladies of Macleod were re- cently at the home of Mrs. J. Allan oa tae occasion of a miscellaneous shower given in honor of two of the recently arrived Baglish. brides. Requested to give her own ac- count of the evening with her im- pressions in general of Canadian customs the follOKtes was written by one of the brides lor the Herald correspondent: "Mv impression of Canada is tisat the people in the west are reaily grand. I have never experienced such hosnltaUtr it makes one feel quite at "horse" especially when so raaay of English girls have left loved ones in the Old Country. My greatest surprise happened a few nights ago when after finishing my supper I was rJshed out of the house bv rav husband to mends ouc in the country. Well. I just could not understand what it was all about and all the answer I could get was that we were going to a cowboy dance up in the mils. My shoes, "no: being the essence of comfort for dancing, we decided to call at the house on our way to the dance to change them. -Well, at last we arrived ray English girl friend and I pro- ceeded to tidy up for the dance, the house was rather packed with peo- ple but we imagined that nether was giving a bridge party for friends when "Here Comes the Bride" was being played we did not realize what it was all about. After being introduced to all we were still under the impression that we were going to a dance, we then enquired where our husbands had disappeared to and where told tnat they had gone then dawned oa me that it was a party given in our favor. I still can't express my feelings when a basket of gifts was brought into the room, my eyes nearlv popped out as I had alreaay received many lovely gifts at a shower a few days previous. Any- way, I thanked each person person- allv, but afterwards wished that I could have given a speech but I was loss for words. I have decided to send all my gift cards home just to let my family see what won- derful oeople the Canadians are and I'm sure that they will be happy to tfrittfr that I'm happy in my new country. I can't see now anv girl could be otherwise. "The evening was spent witn 24 guests nlaying court whist. Prizes presented to the two highest scores. Afterwards a delicious lunch was served bv verv kind friends had organized the whole thing, rm sure that mv English friend and I will always remember this lovely surprise if we were de- ceived by our husbands. To say that we "appreciate such kindness is putting it mildly. While things here are somewhat strange to us we ieel that friends here nave ex- tended the hand of good fellowship with a -view to making us feel as much as possible one of them- selves and decidedly at borne among them." The two brides referred to were Mrs. George Allan of Macleod and Mrs. John Metge of the Hazelmere district, south of Macleod, both married in England and who ar- rived at Macleod quite recently to join their husbands. Circles of Lriends are holding sho'srars for other brides with a view that all shall be welcomed to their new acmes wtih a spirit of friendliness conducive to curing any homesick- ness or loneliness.
