Hi there, as a kid I used to spend some summers in West Arichat, I loved it We drove all the way from BC to be with friends and family. I loved going on fresh clambakes and eating a ton and half of blueberries that were in our yead. I love that big storms that came through! It seemed like eveyone was so nice and a bit carefree! I didn't speak French, my mom is Acadian French from Porierville so she did all the important things if I had to talk. I remember a Collen and Colltte and their brother Ivan Dorey, I wonder where they are at, I wish them the very best in life for they were very nice to me, eventhough growing up where I did there was a diference in culture to learn and they were willing to accept me just the way I was! I found the people there so rich, maybe some with money but most people they are rich with heritage, culture, family and friends!!!!!!!!!!!Thank q,Lisa

I went to Watford in 1975 and 1976.

I did an exchange in (Nicolet-QC) with the secondary school of Watford- ONT.

I met two people I'll remember all my life. The first one host me in his family and his name was Jim Wilson. The second one was Celeste Lembert from the same school.

I don't know if it because I coming older or because those friends were so good with me, but with the time it become more and more important to meet them one more time.

If you know something about those people today, I'll appreciate a lot to know.

Thanks.

I was on a canoe trip in Ontario when I got appendicitis. I was paddled to Allanwater Bridge and lay on the dock there for a while, waiting for the seaplane service to take me to hospital. The owners of the dock, were very kind and hospitable. They allowed us use of their phone and facilities and Violet and Barney, sat with me and kept us company until the plane arrived. It was a very strange experience all round but I will never forget the kindness shown to me by those strangers in a time when my life depended on it.

I am researching the history of the Rorke's. Research reveals my Great-Great Grandfather Joseph Rorke lived in Gravenhurst in the period of 1880-1900. He was a Jeweller on Main St He raised a large family of 8 children with his wife Mary (nee:Wilson). After the fire of 1887 he re-built & re-opened a Candy Store in the same location. No money left for jewellery.(Building still stands today on your Main St.) He was also a member of the "Gravenhurst Rangers" a bicycling Club of the day. He also patented a two speed bike in 1894. At some point in time 1896-1911 he died prematurely and his widow and family relocated to Toronto. It is believed his father & mother Joseph & Bridgett also lived in Gravenhust. I have in the past send several e-mails to the Gravenhurst Library for any info on the Rorke's, but they went unanswered. I was hoping someone in Gravenhurst may have further information on the Rorke's or pic's of Gravenhurst or the Gravenhurst Rangers during that period of time.

I was an exchange student who lived with the family of Gaston Fournier for the summer of 1971. I was then 16 years old, and would now like to go back with my wife and children and visit the family, but have not found an address or telephone number on the internet. The family at that time had three young children. I did go back with a friend in 1973 for a visit but have had no contact with the family since then.

Can anyone help me get an address or telephone number for a member of this family?

Thanks.

Born in Arvida in 1949 , a great town to be raised. We had the school just 500 yards from our house. There were two outdoors ice rink behind the school with tennis courts and pool in the summer.
The local golf course was 15 minutes car drive build along the beautiful Sagnenay River. From the age of 12 to 18, I spent my summer at the course and the winters at the ice rink.
The kids played road hockey and baseball in the summer. Lac St Jean is but 45 minutes west of town. Quebec City was but 2 1/2 hours south.
I still enjoy going there in the summers.

I want to know what people in the community think of the now ex-Maitland International Raceway. I would like to receive any impressions on the affect that it had on the community and the negative or positive opinions of the citizens living with a race track in their neighbourhood. I live in West Hants county and there is proposed municipal legislation being drafted to allow development of tracks in our area. I am opposed to this and need some history to make my case. Any help would be appreciated.

I am looking for information on a Michael Ryan from Conception Bay, Newfoundland who died in the First World War possibly in France but who may have spent some time in the Fergus, Ontario area prior to the war. His name appears on the Fergus Cenotaph. He signed up for duty in New Brunswick. I'd like to compile as much information on this young man as I can for posterity. I think possibly he worked for a gentleman in Fergus by the name of Col. J.J. Craig, possibly as a driver/gardener. Any assistance you can give would be much appreciated. A booklet is being produced on the centopah. Please respond to www.mestern.net

We lived in Alice Arm when the mine was first built. I was the only female to work on the job site. My husband worked for Commonwealth Construction who built the mine area. Do you know if there is a road that is driveable to Alice Arm? We always had to go by air or boat. Thanks
