Norma Neilson today

 

Thanks to Penny Trafford we have this update and found one of our CPHS graduates yesterday.. Norma Neilson–her Father owned the Lyme Kiln on Napoleon Street in Carleton Place-

Norma’s Mom Veva was an active Church member, loved her flower gardens and was well known around the Valley for her beautiful quilts. Veva won many ribbons in all the Fall Fairs around. The Neilsons owned the brick house next to Penny before Stewart Comba. Veva had her flower gardens on the lot that her house sits on before they moved up the street and she had about three lots along Elizabeth Street filled with flower beds, which all have houses on them now.

and if you graduated in 1956 chances are you danced to this..
