Just thought you might be interested in posting this photo since there was so much interest about Joie & Bunny Bond.
Bunny was an enthusiastic supporter of CPCC. He was in one of the great war canoe crews of the which achieved a Dominion Championship. This was a big achievement for a sport dominated by clubs from Toronto and Montreal. In the canoeing world in Canada, everyone knows about Carleton Place!
Bunny would come to the CPCC Annual Regattas with immaculate red and white sneakers so there would be no doubt as to his loyalty. This picture with Bunny, my Mum & Dad is taken in front of the clubhouse in use from the early ‘50’s until the new one was built in the mid-80’s. John Edwards—

Joie Bond had a brother nicknamed Bunny. She had heard his proper name once but cannot recall it. Bunny Bond dated forever into old age, with a local gal named Dorcus Bennett. Dorcus was called Dick, had a twin sister, Martha Gertrude Groves who married Allan Groves. Dorcus was Sandie’s father in law’s (Dr. Forbes Baird)assistant and after I tracked her down found out she made 600 bucks a year as an assistant in 1921. Bunny was a championship paddler with the Canoe Club in his youth.
If you have anymore memories jot them down in the comments section. Thanks!!
