One Internet bidder seems to have won many of of the choice costumes. It would be great if it was for a local collection or institution. More likely, these will go overseas along with the cream of Debbie’s first auction held last June. The Unsinkable Debbie Reynolds was vindicated by the very high prices her collection got. She was for several years free of debt and could make her children comfortable. If only Hollywood and Los Angeles had cared as much about its history as she had. I adored everything about The Perks of Being a Wallflower. This is one of the best coming-of-age dramas that I have seen in years. It is so sharply written and astute in its portrayal of life in high school, so much so that I could completely relate to much of what occurs in the film.

Hacienda Casino, Las Vegas NV.

It is with broken hearts that we announce the passing of Donald “Donnie” MacDonald of Port Hood, aged 85, on Monday, May 9th, 2022. Donnie passed away peacefully in Inverness Memorial Consolidated Hospital with his loving wife and daughter by his side. Born on February 22nd, 1937, Donnie was a son of the late Isabel and Angus Willie MacDonald. Donnie attended St. F.X. University in 1953 at the young age of 16, after finishing grade 11 at Port Hood Academy. He spent some time working in Niagara Falls as well as working at his father’s store, which he eventually managed, before becoming a millwright at Stora Forest Industries in Port Hawkesbury. After more than two decades of shift work, he wanted to try a new challenge and took on the role of vibrations analyst, where he remained until his retirement after approximately 35 years with the company. A deeply devoted Catholic, Donnie took great comfort in prayer, particularly the Rosary, which he prayed daily almost to the very end, even as dementia ravaged his brain and took away his ability to remember most everything else. His commitment to both the church and his beloved community of Port Hood led him to take on a very active role with the Knights of Columbus. He served as grand knight on more than one occasion, most notably as charter grand knight of St. Peter’s Council 8275. Donnie was instrumental in establishing this council in Port Hood. The official charter for St. Peter’s was bestowed in 2003, and Donnie was later named grand night of the year for Nova Scotia at the State Convention in recognition of his accomplishments. He loved to share recollections of his family growing up and had a strong bond with his parents and siblings. His wife and two children were the centre of his world and a source of great pride. He loved a good game of auction, with many games played with friends and family lasting into the wee hours. Much to the chagrin of some of his family who played a different style after moving away from home, Donnie would only play auction the “Cape Breton way! ” Puzzles were a favourite pastime for Donnie, who could be found every morning sitting in his recliner with his glasses on and pen in hand, solving the daily crossword and Sudoku. Whenever his daughter Melanie was home, he would save that day’s crossword so they could solve it together. Donnie enjoyed watching many sports, but hockey was definitely his greatest love. He had a few favourite teams over the years, but the common denominator was always his staunch desire to root against the Montreal Canadiens, which happened to be his son Glen’s favourite team. This led to some entertaining banter during Habs games over the years. We’d hazard a guess Donnie is ribbing Glen pretty hard wherever they are right now after seeing this season’s final ranking. Donnie leaves behind his treasured and devoted wife of 50 years, Annie Mae MacDonald, and his cherished daughter, Melanie MacDonald, both of Port Hood.
