Words of wisdom: (I am going to carry 14 sayings below) The newest one will always appear at the top, replacing the one that drops off at the bottom)

Logic is a systematic method of coming to the wrong conclusion with confidence.

Quantised Revision of Murphy's Law:
Everything goes wrong all at once.

O'Toole's Commentary:
Murphy was an optimist.

The trouble with most jobs is the job holder's resemblance to being one of a sled dog team.
No one gets a change of scenery except the lead dog.

Firestone's Law of Forecasting:Chicken Little only has to be right once.

Do not argue with an idiot. He will drag you down to his level and beat you with experience.

I am so clever that sometimes I donít understand a single word of what I am saying.

NEWS: I am going to post my comments and observations here rather than on the NEWS page as most people enter the site from this page.

Latest Traffic update (Last 500 visits, total is 43050 as of 1/19/13):


1/19/13 - First of all, Happy New Year everybody. I apologize for the scarcity of updates but a busy social calendar, travel assignments and a couple of bouts with flus all conspired against me sitting at the keyboard. I am sad to say that I had to add the name of Peter Zerr to the MEMORIAM page. Our condolences to the family. The class of '63 is planning a reunion for this summer. Details can be found on the class page. I hope you have a great time. As you can see from the hit counter, traffic has been steady and I expect that we will reach the 50,000 visits mark by the end of this year! In hockey the West Central Rage juniors have won 11 games this season, after a 6-5 win over the Cypress Cyclones on Friday. That puts them ahead of 3 other teams in the league! The Tigers have managed 2 wins so far this season but have 3 games in hand on the team ahead of them with 4 points difference in the standings. They are playing in the Provincials tonight (Sunday) against the Turtleford Tigers. I'll post the result when I get it. I have also refreshed the content of the HUMOR page. Unfortunately I lost a lot of my files when I unexpectedly had to rebuild my machine. And Humor was one folder I did not back up!

12/18/12 - I have added the name of Larry Bohn to the MEMORIAM page. A link to his obituary is also posted there, at the bottom of the page. Our deepest sympathy goes out to the family. In hockey, the Tigers are struggling as they have 1 win in 7 tries. However, the good news is that they are only 4 points behind the 2 teams ahead of them. The Rage juniors are doing better having won 7 games plus 2 points for overtime losses. That puts them 5 point ahead of Prince Albert. I have added another progress photo of the new Wellness Centre. It is found in the TOWNSCENES page at the bottom as the very last entry. And, finally, I have also refreshed the HUMOR page. I may not be able to update the page before the Christmas Holidays so I want to now wish you and your family a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year. Richard

12/12/12 - It is my sad task to inform you that I have added 3 names to the MEMORIAM page. All three passed away during November although I have no further details. Where I was able to obtain an obituary I have added it to the bottom of the MEMORIAM page. The 3 additions are Gordon (Jock) Bahm, Joe Gerlinski and Dwayne (Lumpy) Knorr. Our condolences go out to the families.

Want to make this a better site?

Here's how you can help!


I've had people ask me how they could help in the development and maintenance of this site. So here's what you can do:


1)       Provide items of interest to  schoolmates. Things like weddings, births, deaths, moves, etc. Or events such as sports, theatre, reunions.

2)       Help with finding missing schoolmates (SEEKING page), correcting information (See item immediately below)

3)       Humor/thoughts for sharing with others.

4)      Sharing photos (town scenes, class pictures, team pictures, reunion photos, class-specific items which can posted to a class' page)

5)       Provide missing information. Specific examples:

a)      there are team photos in the PHOTOS section that are incomplete as far as players' names are concerned. If you have any information, it would be most welcome.

b)      missing class pictures (I still have not got a picture for the class of 2004)

c)       there are a number of entries in the NEIGHBOURS section for which I have no information. If there is sufficient information for a community, I am willing to set up a full page for that entry (See the JELLICOE page)

d)      missing entries for  the FEEDERS and NEIGHBOURS pages

6)      More activity in the MESSAGES forum.

7)      Suggestions/Feedback on the website in general. 




Lucille Lowes has been seeking contact info for Shelby Smith, daughter of one of the Royal Bank Managers during the mid to late fifties. Can anyone help in this matter?


This section is available to anyone seeking information. Just send me an email. R


The site is organized as follows.

All main pages are shown on the navigation bar above. Some of these pages serve as indexes to subordinate pages which contain more detailed information on a specific topic. Examples are the class index and the main Photos page, both of which have subordinate pages. To get to a page, click on its name on the navigation bar above.

To keep the content fresh I try to update as many pages as possible on a weekly basis. So visit on a regular basis or risk missing something interesting!

As an overview of what you can find where, let's take a page by page tour:


Activities - a page, which as the name suggests, points to local activities. And I am always looking for activities to showcase here <hint>.  There are subpages to this activity.

Celebrations - an index to the months of the year,  showing  birthdays and anniversaries. Feel free to submit names and dates for inclusion. The actual dates are on the month's individual pages

Classes - an index to pages for specific graduation classes. 100% of the class pages from 1955 to 2005 have a graduation picture, some have more pictures. If there is class-specific information, such as class reunions, this is the place to find it. Feel free to contribute material for your graduation class. I'd be happy to add anything you wish to send to me.

Contacts - a list of schoolmates showing information on how to contact them, e.g. an e-mail address. This is a great way to allow schoolmates to re-establish contact. Please consider adding your information. Drop me an e-mail and I'll glad add your data. I do not add any information without express permission of the parties involved!

FAQ - the Frequently Asked Questions page. If you have a question, look here first for an answer.
