My Side of The Dam: The Retrospective 1996-2003.

My Side of the Dam was a must-read local humour column in The Woolwich Observer. Authored by former Floradale resident Allen D. Martin, he found humour where he lived, in his own situations and in the people he knew … plus a bunch of stuff he just made up. My Side of the Dam’s goal was to get a chuckle – and he delivered week-after-week for eight years.

Life after the column.

Allen was forced to stop writing because of the debilitating effects of Parkinson’s Disease. He continued to stay involved in the community and the Observer was there to tell his story.

Twenty-five years in the making.

The Observer is marking their twenty-five year milestone by publishing My Side of the Dam. Allen wasn’t just a writer at the Observer … he was much more than that.
