Memory Monday – Manitoba Memories (Mid 1980’s)

I came across some negatives from SJCBS archives. They appear to be from the mid 1980’s and that perhaps they were taken by one of the students. They brought back memories for me of the cold winters in Manitoba and… Continue Reading →

Memory Monday – “The Fleet”

This photo shows the SJSA “fleet”, taken in 1991. It includes some SJCBS canoes as well. I know that many of these boats endeared themselves to the students and staff though the years, so much so that they garnered some… Continue Reading →
