The Yardleys and McCulloughs

Both of these families had tons of boys and both families lived on Egan. The McCullough (sp) had Jimmy and Jerry among other boys. They were so popular. All went to VCH. The Yardley boys were tough and may have gone to VHS. I had a crush on Jerry McC..,
Also  Bruce Westlake who lived on Brault or Godin.

I lived on Egan upstairs from Sandra Coward who was married to a McCullough she had twins Scott and Sandy - real little devils they were - that was around 1972.  Around l962-3 she used to hang with a Vivian and Irene McCambridge and Irene's cousin Mary.

Did you try facebook?? it seems to be really gaining in popularity much more than Classmates ever was - wonder if Classmates will try to buy out Facebook since it is sooo popular anyway worth a try.

Robin:   This thread is almost a year old - you must be spending a lot of time researching old messages. Actually, three of the McCullough brothers (Sonny / Jerry / ?) show up at our annual Verdun Reunion at the Strathcona Hotel on the first Friday of December. You should try and attend this year - assuming you are a local resident.   Gord Gibbons Brampton, Ontario

Robin there is a photo album of the Annual Verdun Reunion in Toronto on the last page of Our link here under 'Pictures' or just click here, and check & see if you recognise anyone..... Oddly enough despite being an annual get together for Verduncharacters,.noone since 2002 has been able to get hold of a camera.... hahahahahah  but every year it does get mentioned here ,as to when & where,........but yet no pics.......Weird huh ! ...hahahahaha  Have a look at the pics we do have:  http://groups.msn.com/VerdunConnections/2002verdunreunion.msnw?albumlist=2   ....Have Fun & Remember Verdun......  if we can't get pictures ,then I'm sure wherever there is a gathering of ex-Montrealers / Verdun ers or ites,.there must be a police 'sketch artist fairly close'......hahahahahah

Peter Yardley used to host parties in his basement most Saturday nights way back in the mid 60's. We all Sharon Burt, Lorraine Greeley, Beatrice Noble, Sammy Sharkey, Ken Baylis, Danny Heron etc.etc. had a great time. We all hung out together at Dawson's Boys Club on Woodland Ave next to the Verdun United Church.
Great times, Jim Patterson
