RINK CA 1955, IT WAS CARNIVAL TIME ON CHURCHILL, #1 WE SEE JOHN RILEY OF COURSE WITH HIS CANADIAN HOCKEY SWEATER, HE WAS ABOUT 7 YEARS OLD. # 2 WE SEE THE GOOD OLD LEGION NEARLY NEW AT THAT TIME. # 3 LOOK AT THOSE LIGHTS THAT OUR TOWN ELECTRICIAN ERNIE GROW, TOOK GOOD CARE, SELDOM WE WOULD SEE ONE LIGHT BURNED, THANK GOD WE WOULD OF NEEDED A FLUORESCENT PUCK.
