A wedding of much interest to Grimsby people is taking place in St. George's Church in the city of New York, on Saturday, March 6, at 4 o'clock, when Miss Edith B. Leckie, daughter of Rev. Dr. and Mrs. Neil M. Leckie, Bon Accord, Grimsby, will become the wife of Rev. Robert S. Trenbath, formerly, for a time, associate of St. George's Church, and now chaplain of the Cadet Aviation Centre, San Antonio, Texas. Rev. Elmore M. McKee, rector of the church, in a recent bulletin, makes mention of the forthcoming wedding, and pays high tribute to the achievements and the personalities of the engaged couple.

"Miss Leckie, who has been Mr. Wright's secretary on the staff of St. George's for about a year, has made a very great contribution to the efficiency and the life of St. George's, and we shall miss her very much," says Mr. McKee. "She has won her way into the hearts of all the staff, and of many others. Mr. Trenbath was one of the most competent and valued associates I have ever had in my 22 years in the ministry. His leadership and influence here will be long remembered."

The rector expressed the hope that they would find it possible, in years to come, to return frequently to St. George's. He announced that their many friends in the parish were invited to the ceremony. The rector of the church is to conduct the wedding ceremony, and Rev. Dr. Leckie is giving his daughter away.
