In July of 2012, I was hired by the R.M. of Willowdale as the writer and editor of the municipality's 100th Anniversary History Book. From July to December of that year, I researched and compiled information from various resources, including the R.M.'s archives. Minutes from the rural municipality meetings were largely sourced, as the intention was to achieve the most accurate information possible. Additionally, I interviewed several sources whose accounts of events throughout the community's history were used to help shape the stories within the book in an authentic and accurate manner. Although the 112-page book is not available online, a link to its celebration can be found here:
