Clipped from The Ottawa Journal,  03 May 1954, Mon,  Page 1

 

Ray Paquette– That particular day was a pleasant early spring day. It was about 5:00 p.m. when I remember the Town fire siren wailing but was somewhat puzzled by the lack of trucks rushing out of the fire hall which were clearly audible from our home on Herriott Street. The OWFC was being called out to assist in the search. I knew Arnie from our time on Moore Street. His family lived on Park Avenue and the end of Miguel and on my return to Carleton Place his brother John and I commuted to our jobs in Ottawa on the Carleton Bus Lines.

I have been writing about downtown Carleton Place Bridge Street for months and this is something I really want to do. Come join me in the Domino’s Parking lot- corner Lake Ave and Bridge, Carleton Place at 11 am Saturday September 16 (rain date September 17) for a free walkabout of Bridge Street. It’s history is way more than just stores. This walkabout is FREE BUT I will be carrying a pouch for donations to the Carleton Place Hospital as they have been so good to me. I don’t know if I will ever do another walking tour so come join me on something that has been on my bucket list since I began writing about Bridge Street. It’s always a good time–trust me.
