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.

Pioneer Picnic, July 5, 1961 — Visiting in the "Shades"

Possibly Eileen Yager with sun glasses, Margaret (Adamson) McGibbon, and ???. The teacherage is in the background, and was transformed into a food and refreshment concession booth for the big day.
