My grandfather, John C Wickwire, spent time on this island as a newly graduated physician in 1927. I have photos and a journal (and taped interviews I made with him about this). Would love to know more about the project in which he was involved.
In addition to serving as the community doctor, he kept track of the weather.

Seven river communities stretched along this part of the Miramichi River in New Brunswick have banded together in planning the largest homecoming reunion ever to be experienced in the area. ?Come Home to the River? festivities are planned for August 14-16, 2009 in McNamee.

McNamee, Carroll Crossing, O?Donnell Town, New Bandon, Ludlow, Porter Cove and Priceville.

The impetus for ?Come to the River? began as a topic on a Facebook? group created by Irva Larsen one of the committee members. The group ?McNamee on the Mighty Miramichi Facebook? group has over 250 members and it is expected there will be over 500 people attending the homecoming?, said Larsen. The Volunteer Coordinator is Euphemia O?Donnell-Black. Volunteers who wish to be involved with ?Come Home to the River ? McNamee 2009? are invited to contact O?Donnell-Black at 506-369-9105 or through email aeblack@nb.sympatico.ca.

Part two re: Pat Falloon,

In regards to my blog entry previously I would like someone to foward this to Mr.Falloon. I also would like him to know that my Grandson " Pat " the one who is the recipient of all my cards now plays Ice hockey in Mt.Laurel N.J. under the watchful eyes of Coach Sudsy Settlemeyer former trainer and all around do everything type of guy for the Phila.Flyers. The cards were mailed with a Manitoba Postmark so I am sure Mr. Falloon found them mixed up with some other paper work and sent them out. Please foward my thanks and surprise. John McCleary,Levittown,Pa.

Wow,I went out of my way a little to find out a way to contact and thank Pat Falloon for the two signed hockey cards he sent to me just today.The really great thing was is that I sent these to him in 1999 when he was a active NHL'er.I was newly un employed due to hurricane Floyd and I was feeling sorry for myself and decided th get a hobby.I started sending cards out to players for autographs and was going to give them to my Grandson that I was babysitting for at the time.I normally sent a stamped self addressed envelope along with the cards.Pat was a Flyer and living here in Levittown,Pa.I was a fan of his.So 9 years later they arrive and I believe the problem was I forgot to put a stamp on this envelope.All kinds of faded Postal messages were on it so it either took a long time to get through the process or Pat Falloon found it in a pile of letters he was going through.

Hello to Everyone: I am in my early 50's and am beginning to think about retirement. I am interested in finding a year round trailer resort in Minesing or surrounding area. Does anyone know of a resort in Minesing or the surrounding area. I was told that there is one (not sure if it is year round) in the Innisfil area.

Thanks everyone, Theresa

Annual fishing trip through Tamarac Air Service has been fantastic. The hotel accomodations have been very good. The local tavern being closed was not very good news. The town needs a place where tourists can get together for entertainment and relaxation. Our driving into Clova takes 16 hours and it would be nice to have the tavern re opened.

Visited Kenogami Aug 5 to 8/08. Would anyone know how or where I could access school and church (St Famille) records going back to the 1940s. My hope is that those records might show our address at the time. I am trying to pinpoint the street on which we lived as well as the school my sisters attended.

Back in 1943 there was a very small school not far from St Famille Church. It was one or two rooms (possibly on Rue Cabot????). This was a french school because my family was french. Would someone know the name of this school.
Many thanks,

Noelville cops not doing there job!!!

Where are they when the citizens and visitors of Noelville need their assistance? That punky little gang that is going around terrorizing everyone and putting people in the hospitals with broken limbs and other body parts must be too much for them to handle because these kids have been getting away with it for far to long.
Come on OPP get with the program! This gang needs to be stopped before these beatings turn to a murder!!!
