(excerpted from Lloydminster Times – May 22, 1930)
"The final ceremony of the marriage of the Town and Village of Lloydminster took place on Thursday evening last when one of the most successful banquets ever put on by the Board of Trade - and there have been many – was held at the Alberta Hall to celebrate the event. Among the many good things to eat were “Huxley” celery, sweet (“Eddie”) pickles and an Amalgamation salad – that contained almost everything. The spring salmon was “Cooked” a la G. L. whilst cold “Ham-ilton” and stewed “Cooke” was served plentifully. The roasts included scalloped “Crossleys” and “Wallis” green peas whilst the dessert consisted of apple pie a la “Miller” with ice cream. Saskatchewan tea; Alberta coffee and Lloydminster home brew topped off an enjoyable meal."
