Turn the clock back to 1961 and beyond. Roam those old dirt roads once more and visit friendly neighbours you knew so well. From its beginnings before 1930 to its dismantlement in 1961, making way for the Squaw Rapids Hydro-electric Dam, to the day in 1962 when the river rose and water erased footprints forever, there's a lot to remember and to comment on.

Mossy Vale Vacation Bible School, Circa 1954

Hey look, warm day, the door is open! It was summer holidays ... and more school — Vacation Bible School that is, held at Mossy Vale School. Johnny Smith is in the foreground, Clara (Hamilton) (is that you) next to him, and Verna (Reimer) is behind, facing the camera. ... the others were too busy to look up. Audrey Jean (Smith), was this the time you came from Nipawin and attended, and so could one of those two girls be you? The identities of the boy who is standing and the bigger boy in the far row next to the blackboard, are not confirmed.
