Number Two’s Try Harder?





I can’t post some newspaper articles on Facebook as you would never be able to read them. So here is one I thought everyone would enjoy.

Rod Snedden, age 21, of 118 High Street, Carleton Place said he was driving around Carleton Place with his fiance Anne Wylie when they heard the winning tickets from the Ottawa Exhibition attendance draw on the radio. That day in 1969 he finally heard the winning numbers and wasted no time speeding to Ottawa and the Exhibition grounds before the 11.p.m cutoff time.

The engaged couple had visited the annual fair for a couple of hours the first Saturday it was open. Mr. Snedden was a junior technician with an Ottawa engineering firm and had never won anything before.
