Hi Marty and Happy New Year to you and Yours....
Re the article you posted...
Dorothy Parker's husband was/is Les Elder.
I ran into him in the late 70's. He was working for Nortel at the St Laurent Plant. (Decarie Circle)
In addition to Carleton Place we also did a Group Trip to Plattsburg NY to The WPTZ TV Saturday afternoon
Dance show. It was a low budget version of American Bandstand.
I think the emcee of the show was a guy named Bird Berdan... AKA the Atlantic Weatherman.
I forget the details of the trip but I think Les' 57 Chev broke down or something?????
I am sure someone remembers.
Years later while golfing in Perth ON I was introduced to a Banker named ??? Rintoul.
By the end of the evening we figured out I had been billeted with his Aunt and Uncle
during that Christian Teeners Trip to Carleton Place.
I remember that later on the United Church made us change our name from Christian Teeners
to CYO??? ( Christian Youth Organization ??? ) or something like that.
It was not well rec'd by the group; and that along with the rise in popularity of the Youth Centre led to the demise of the group.
Ainsi va la vie....
Thanks for the memories Linda....
