Music, Music, Music

Russ Powell has graciously offered to put the skills honed in his long career as a radio announcer to work providing the background music for our reunion. Here he is at home in Nova Scotia having a great time transferring his
collection of top hits from the 50s and 60s from LPs to CDs for our entertainment.

Do you have a "special" song from back then (perhaps it was playing on your first date or maybe it brings back memories of that first kiss) that didn't make it near the top of the charts? Let Russ know and he'll try to include it in his reunion repertoire.

Click here to e-mail Russ your request.

Here is a letter to all classmates, from Russ Click here to read Russ's letter

Way to go Russ!!

Corner Brook Then and Now

Things have changed in Corner Brook over the years. The high school, instead of being all alone on the top of the hill, has buildings all around it.

West Street is modernized with paving stones in place of the concrete sidewalks that we strolled up and down all those weekend nights so many years ago.

And we, like any modern city, have walking trails in several areas.

Students now can walk from West Street to the school along a well developed path with the Glynmill Inn Pond open and in full view.

Of course we walked to school that way too, but our paths were forged by running feet in a rush to make the last bell. And any views of the pond were through the trees.

Recently, Coleman's opened Corner Brook's newest modern grocery store. It's a beautiful place...high ceilings, lots of space, located not too far from the one of our most frequented hangouts....

Humber Gardens - the place was like our second home! We got to know its every nook and cranny over the years! Ice skating as kids, hockey, then roller skating every Saturday night. We spent a lot of time there cheering on our team in its battles against Regina and boy did we love those Royals games!

The school, West Street, the stadium - the triangle of existence for us back then. Things are different today as we keep pace with the modern world. However, the old places are just as vivid and alive in our fond memories of "back when...".
