A blast from the past- Letter to the editor

I wrote a previous letter to the editor about the upcoming Fernie 70’s Reunion, which just past now this last weekend. What a Blast from the Past! The McPeeks rock! And so does The Relief Committee who played the gig!


A blast from the past


I wrote a previous letter to the editor about the upcoming Fernie 70’s Reunion, which just past now this last weekend.  What a Blast from the Past!  The McPeeks rock! And so does The Relief Committee who played the gig!

There are so many people that helped and made donations of time or auctioned goods that I’m not going to begin to try and remember who for fear of not mentioning someone.  I would like to thank all those who helped, you know who you are.

Cindy Corrigan, Mayor of the City of Fernie played a big part in our Reunion by attending, cutting our cake (donated by Kathy Pollard of Smilin Pixi Custom Cakes).  Cindy made a great speech, and the City donated the use of the arena for the event.  This was a huge donation, and I can’t not mention her help, along with the help of the first lady Cocoa.

My feelings about getting together with friends that I had not seen in 33 years were incredibly overwhelming! I would come across someone I had not seen in 33 years, the hugs, the kisses, the tears, and then we’d talk for a short time, and another person I had not seen in 33 years would show up, and the hugs, the kisses, the tears!  This went on and on all night!  How can I explain how I felt?  Fabulous, emotional, overwhelmed.  And now I can’t even tell anyone because I have no voice left!  I was MC and I sold tickets, handed out peace signs and party favours and I think I used my voice a bit much! Recovery time is now needed.

There was talk about doing something like this every five years.  I think it’s a great idea!  I would love to attend such an event.  If there are any volunteers that would want to do this, contact me.  I will set you up with some ideas, facebook page and website, and I’ll be there to party with bells (and peace signs).
