Wardle John Sr

Mr. Wardle arrived in our district sometime in the 1930's, along with his son Jack. They lived on the old Reg Quayle place, where Carl Nelson now lives. There were already buildings on the place and the old house is still standing. Social Credit was very much a part of the conversation in those days, and Mr. Wardle took an active part in political meetings, etc. He was a staunch follower of William Aberhart. At dances and parties he was always happy to oblige the crowd with a song or two during the lunch intermissions. Jack was also a good singer and would accompany himself on the guitar. Mr. Wardle was a member of the school board in 1939 but left the district shortly after.
