Fitting farewell for former mayor

Former long-time King Township mayor Margaret Britnell passed away on October 12th, at the the age of 87.   Her remarkable political career spanned 27 years between 1970 and 1997.   An open house celebration in her honour was held this past Saturday afternoon at the King City Seniors Centre, on Fisher Street in the village.   A touching tribute to her memory were several of Margaret's old election signs on the King Road and on Fisher Street.   In the photo above, one of the old election signs was co-incidentally juxtaposed on the corner lot of the law office of Margaret Black, herself a former King Township mayor.
