Just joined a few days ago
Just wanted to say hi & tell you a bit about myself. I left a message on the "looking for" Giblins of Valiquette that bahama865 put up. That person didn't reply, so I guess he or she isn't around anymore. I grew up on Valiquette St. As a child, I played with Loraine Giblin, Lynn Lean, AnnMarie Daoust, Carol Starzinski & the Salway Brothers & later Steve & Roddy Farrell & Debbie Humpfries. As I grew older, I hung around Kostas too. Around 1964 & onward. Kostas then was owned by two Greek brothers named Johnnie & Denny. There was Dorothy Meenie, Melton Biffin, Brian Spence; Johnnie Spascik, Pat Rodrigue, Jimmy Ramsey, Claude Maassen, Harry Daly & his girlfriend Lorraine Deshane(spelling?) & so many others. We all went to the VCH dances every second Saturday, the legion dances on Fridays, & the Point boys & girls club dances on alternate Saturdays. The only person I've kept in touch with was my best friend since I was 10, her name is Brenda Kenny. We talk at least twice a month, she now lives in LaSalle & I moved to Edmonton in 1976. Do these names ring any bells for anyone?
