If you are graduating from a York County, NB, high school and entering agricultural college/university or veterinarian college/university this fall you have an opportunity to apply for this scholarship.
Lena Pond was the last surviving member of the Joslin Loyalist family that owned
farm property in Prince William. For over 63 years, she was married to Clarence Pond. Together
they owned a home in Saint John, but after their retirement, they split their time between the house
and the Joslin farm.
Lena and Clarence were the kind of people who opened their home to their friends and
family. Lena’s obituary reads, “The ‘Welcome’ sign on the door of their home in Saint John really
meant ‘welcome’ as friends often gathered to enjoy an evening of music, especially Irish music,
followed by a delicious pot luck supper, and at the farm, ”welcome’ meant a weekend of boating,
snowmobiling, fishing, barbequing or whatever was in season.”
Before her passing, she arranged to have a scholarship created in her parents’ names. The Frank
Fraser Joslin and Blanche I. (Hood) Joslin Scholarship Fund was established at the Fredericton
Community Foundation in November, 2013, by the trustee.
