    HOULTON — On Jan. 12, Major W.E. (Gary) Campbell of New Maryland, N.B was to speak at Cary Library on his book “The Road to Canada,” and the importance the Shiretown played within the War of 1812.
    But, due to slippery, snow covered roads, Campbell was unable to attend. However, Leigh Cummings, Jr. stepped in to read Campbell’s “script” to those who attended the lecture at the library.
