Pics from 50 Years Ago


Hi Marston & Gang,

Attached are six pictures from December 31, 1958 at a party held by the co-leaders of Christian Teeners (an organization at GP United Church) at their home on Chambly (between Churchill & Gladstone). They were Dorothy Parker (older sister of Hazel from Murray St.) and Les ??, her husband. Also directors were Ken Thompson (not the one on John Street) & his wife Joyce (??); Ken later became a minister. We also did an exchange visit with Carleton Place United Church during the couple of years that the group ran (BYC - before youth centre). We need some help from bloggers to answer the ?? marks - Sandy R., David R., Ralph, John McC - ask Diane re leaders' names, et al. All the gang in the pictures were in Grades 8, 9 or 10 at Royal George at the time, except Mike L's. girlfriend and Carolyn Whalen who went to D'arcy McGee.
