One year a family had a frolic to get the winters
firewood cut and home from the mountain. Much wood was needed as the
old fireplaces used a lot of wood. A log that two men could carry
could be burned in the fireplace. People from the Queensville,
Glendale, Nova Scotia areas came with twenty horses and sleighs. Each
team took down four loads of wood, with the result the family had
eighty loads of wood. (A frolic is neighbors helping neighbors). As
night fell there would be music and dancing at the end of the day.
