Kim Dean–My mom grew up in Almonte and I have many, many memories from there, have enjoyed following your page for a little while. Mom was known growing up as Beverley Giles, daughter of Howard and Olive. She passed away just about a year ago and in going through her belongings, there is an album with photos she kept from years past before meeting my dad (Allan Valkonen) and marrying. I thought I’d pass along these labelled ones to share if any other family might see here and enjoy. I do have more but will need to decipher the names first, if I can, as they are not so easy to read. Mom is not in these photos but in several of the others…

Karen LloydBob Morton was Stan Morton’s son, and went on to be a highly decorated and highly ranked RCAF officer.

Alan ClouthierI noticed Ken is wearing white buck shoes. The photo from 1957 takes me back to grade school and all the rage at the time was white buck shoes made popular by Pat Boone.

Marilyn Lindhard-Would love to see more pictures of your Mom Bev.I think she and Ann may have been my classmates ,along with Bev Smithson.Marilyn Cox Lindhard.
