AVONDALE AND DAYLIGHT SAVINGS TIMEThat in 1947, the community of Avondale did not accept Daylight Savings Time? The residents of Avondale decided to remain on what was termed, “train time.” However when they attended church services in Marshy Hope or Lismore, they had to adjust to their schedule. As well, when they shopped in or attended movies in Antigonish or New Glasgow, there was the same issue. Because of the general inconvenience, the following year, Avondale adapted, as did the other communities in Pictou County.
