Gee, there is no place else we would rather be on the 27th than Winnipeg, but Alexia will have a house full of grandkids, my Mother will be giving her a hand and I will be on a project in Chicago area. So sad. Please give our best wishes to everyone.

Welcome to Shilobrats, Steven. Four weeks from today a group of Shilobrats from the 50's, 60's, and 70's will be reuniting with 7 teachers from those years, at the Winnipeg CanadInns, 2100 McPhillips St., Winnipeg. You, Steven, as well as others from Brandon, Steinbach, Winkler, Portage la Prairie,the Sprucewoods, and elsewhere are welcome to attend. See the list of those attending, some interesting memories, and some e-mails in the What's New section of the Guestbook. One teacher, who is almost 90, will be driving here from Brandon to attend.

Reg Campbell - I met you 4 years ago when you fixed my front door (still working well), and you said you had never seen anyone from Shilo since you left 50 years ago. Now is your chance!

And Steven, if you were there in the early 70's, you would have known some of the teachers who will be at the reunion.

There is still space for more people, and if you would be interested in attending, please e-mail me at the above address. :!clap: :!wondering: :!drink:

Where did you live? is a Special Feature on ShiloBrats website and has been updated with new postings. (Click on Where did you live? in the side menu)

Everyone seems to remember the address(s) they lived at in Shilo, so we thought it might be fun to discover who lived there before and after you, and what that address looks like today! Click on the street name at the top of the page to take you to the Gallery of house photos on that street.

The listings we have are from your postings on Shilobrat FB Group pages, ShiloBrats Guestbook and direct messages to ShiloBrats Contact Us.

What we would like you to do is check if you are listed, and if the information is correct.
Not everyone remembers their house # but often remembers their street, not everyone includes the names of their brothers and sisters who also lived there, and when you lived there, and many ladies under their married name forget to remind us of their maiden name we knew them as (please check both names for correction)

Send any new information, additions, corrections or photos of your house when you lived there to ShiloBrats email, Contact Us or post in the Guestbook.

Dear Doug J: ( and Faye, Doug Jenkins, Lonnie, Bill Brown, & Shilobrats Team)

In support of Lynnn Jeffrey's note: the influence and guidance provided by (sometimes despite our youthful opinions at the time!) devoted and talented teachers such as Mary Sheehan, Gerald Brown, Harvie McGhie and Ivan Traill and their peers, instilled values and skills that served many of us very well as foundations for our pursuits and relationships in adult life!

Personally, I must always assign much credit to Gerald Brown for sparking my love of the wriiten word, grammer and literature which served me well, even as a "dumb airplane pilot".

So sorry that I am not able to attend the "mini-reunion" in WPG, but please extend my love and gratitude to all those that are there!!

Cheers,
Bill Gillespie

Hi! Doug
Sadly I won't be able to attend the Reunion with Miss Sheehan. I left Shilo in 1972 to travel....After backpacking around Europe/North Africa for two years I applied for a job in 1974 with BOAC/British Airways... Miss Sheehan very kindly gave me a wonderful reference prior to my interview and I got the job! I visited so many wonderful countries during my flying days and will be forever grateful to her. Please send her my best regards and I hope you all have a wonderful reunion.

Hi Ian: Thanks for the good word; however, not my idea. Karen Pollock and Denise Pike had the idea and are the power behind it. I just joined them as a grunt.

I think Greg Leskiw is coming and will play a song to honour Mary T.

Looking forward to seeing Mary T next month at reunion. Just the name conjures up so many good memories. The plan is to jump the train in Ottawa, depart at the Peg and rent a car after the event to drive to Brandon and Shilo. By the time I get back to Shilo I should be 17 again or at least believe I am. Great idea Doug! Cheers

Ian

Reunion website at the address referenced on "What's new" has been upgraded. See who is coming. Check their emails. read their stories. Those of you who can't make the reunion, send an email and/or tell your story about Miss Sheehan. It will be added to the website under "moments" We are lucky that Harvey McGhie, 90 years young, will be attending We welcome stories about Harvey too. He reports he still has a driver's licence and all his "marbles" Between these two teachers, there must b a story or two. Thanks for your participation.

So far we have 14 committed attendees for the lunch with Miss Sheehan. We want more (25 or more) would be perfect. Latest person to indicate he will attend is Harvey McGhie 90 years old ("I have a driver's licence and my marbles";). Brandonites, Portage La Prairie brats and Winnipeggers, come and join us. Ken Jenkins is coming all the way from Victoria Island so if you live within 175 miles, you should make the effort and join us. You won't regret it. Go to What's New and click on the green link at the bottom of the page. It will take you to our webpage.
