Ivy Hewittson

Karen and I were in Montreal for the weekend and made the required tour of Verdun. Whilst driving down Fayolle, we met Ivy Hewittson (ex of YMCA Saturday Night Dance Fame) standing outside her home. I'm not sure if she actually remembered us, although she was delighted that we stopped to say hi. A lot of people went through the Y dances in the 60's and 70's and I doubt if they would have been successful had it not been for Ivy.
Considering her age, she seemed fairly spry, although she was still mourning the passing of her husband Jack last year.
