I attended this gathering mainly to get some
photos of the people involved but also to take a few pictures of the
Fallbrook Farm. I arrived a touch late as my GPS system
decided not to talk to me and so I went flying by the exit off the
401. Had to stop and activate the speaker and so as I'd missed
the turning I got the scenic route back to my destination.
When I arrived everyone was sitting down to a
light lunch and so I very much enjoyed a hearty bowl of soup, some
excellent sandwiches and some desert and fruit and enjoyed a wee
blether with folk at my table.
then onto all the activities that were organized and this included
the handing out of a DVD on the Oral History Project arranged by the
University of Guelph. Many gave wee talks and lots of reminisces of
days gone by.
A video was taken of the event by Sandy and
one of the extended family who as it happens helps to organize the
Fergus Highland Games.
Sandy handed out
a flyer to everyone which was double sided and here it is for you to

And now here are some of the pictures I took and
I might add that if you click on any of the pictures a much larger
version will appear which should be of sufficient size to get a good
print. Also, if anyone can supply the names of the people in these
pictures, please email me and I'll add them in.

Having a sing along

And so after all the talks and reminisces and the
sing along it was onto Fallbrook through what turned into a misty
day with quite heavy rain.
And so it was time to head back to Chatham having
had a most enjoyable day.
