BEACONSFIELD - When the fine autumn days were calling everyone to spend a day outdoors, the Ladies' Aid Society of the United Brethren Church responded in an unique way. Calling their friends together, they led the way to Perry Waller's cornfield and spent the day gathering corn. So much joy and profit were felt from the first day's effort that two more days were spent likewise. In all, 18 hours were spent which resulted in their placing 669 bushels of corn in the crib, bushels of fun and an increased bank account, which proclaim this to be a most successful autumn picnic.
