New fruit warehouse opened at Burgessville
Special Despatch to The Globe.
Woodstock, Dec. 16.—As a great forward step in the handling of the fruit crops of the district, the new fruit warehouse and packing house of the Burgessville Fruit Growers' Association, just completed at a cost of $6,000, was thrown open yesterday. The building is 40 feet wide, 100 feet long and two stories high, and 25 per cent. of the cost ($1,500) was defrayed by the Ontario Government. The first Ontario elevator of the Ontario Grain Pool has also been put into operation at Burgessville, in the rear of the fruit warehouse. Both of these projects are co-operative ventures on the part of the fruit and grain growers of the district.
