Less than 20 days until the official first day of spring! It’s been a long winter so I thought it might be nice to showcase these beautiful spring-themed cards. The homemade cards were given to Mrs. Nicholson on the occasion of her and her husband Rev. Nicholson leaving St. Andrew’s United Church in Sydney, Nova Scotia in 1946. Rev. Nicholson was leaving Sydney to become Principle and Professor of Theology of Pine Hill Divinity Hall, hence the reference to the “first lady of Pine Hill.”

The Archives holds a substantial amount of records from Rev. Dr. Nicholson as well as some records from the former St. Andrew’s United Church in Sydney (now part of Heritage United Church).
