Friendship Friday was awesome today.  In the church bulletin Claire described the guest speaker as “Famous Local People”… It most certainly was.

First of all it was determined that no one in the room was born in Kamloops… So everyone one of us had come from somewhere!!


We heard life stories from six amazing women.  Four had arrived in Canada via pier 14 or 21 in Halifax.

They were adventurous and brave…. With joy and tragedies in their lives.  The six life stories were of Fay Walton,  Miriam Baskin,  Ruth Popp,   Linda Jackson,  Grace Clapperton,  and Rae Long.

Friendship Friday will reconvene Friday, September 20th.
