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..

You’d Think That People Would Have Had Enough Of Silly Love Songs.
But I Look Around Me And I See It Isn’t So.
Some People Wanna Fill The World With Silly Love Songs.
And What’s Wrong With That?

Thanks to Jennifer at the Carleton Place and Beckwith Museum for letting me go through her box of photos.

Look What I Found on a Blustery Day in Almonte

Standard

Life is the most exciting opportunity we have. But we have one shot. You graduate from college once, and that’s it. You’re going out of that nest. And you have to find that courage that’s deep, deep, deep in there. Every step of the way.

almonte

It was a Winnie the Pooh sort of day. Chilly, blustery, and two women huddled near the statue of James Naismith in Almonte. Why would anyone have their coat off on a day like that? One girl was graduating and posing with Mr. Naismith and the other, her friend, was taking pictures for her graduation photos. A slam dunk of an idea!
