Dale spent 35 years working at Fraser’s store on the Main Street in Shawville.  He was an active part of the community, a founding member of the Shawville Lions Club (Lifetime Charter Member).  During his time as a Lion’s Club Member they did many wonderful things for the community including repairing homes for the elderly, starting the Canada Day Celebrations and building Mill Dam Park.  He started on the Pontiac Reception Centre project in 1959 and it finally became a reality in 1977 when they first broke ground.
