Local Boy Made Good
I haven’t been able to do a lot of hockey-related topics in these last few days because I’ve been preoccupied with family matters, and between this and the fact that I can’t find any NHL games anywhere in the TV guide, I’ve decided to go with the following at this time. I know you probably come here for hockey stuff and I apologize for the lack of such at this time. I’m doing the best I can do under the circumstances.
I was wandering through a second-hand store in Orillia a few days ago and came across an old Orillia high school yearbook, the Oricolle, from 1955-56. I bought it (cheap) because it has a whack of stuff about local boy Gordon Lightfoot in it. The name written on the front of the book says Terry Whelan, who was a member of Lightfoot’s little high school band.
But first, I went over to the house on Harvie St. where Gordon grew up, and took a picture of it.
Gordon seems to be number 32 in the middle of the back row.
