Hi, I just found this site, what a visit down memory lane. Lived in Shilo during my teen years. 1962-65. Recognized most names and faces.
Wish I had known about the reunion I would of come for sure.
My parents were Capt. Paul and Doris Robitaille.
Saddened to read about all our departed friends, many were close friends growing up.
So happy I came across this site and renewed my happy memories growing up in Shilo.
Lois :D

English surnames were derived from your position in life or the type of work you were involved in. A blacksmith evolved to Smith, a person who milled grain for flour was a Miller. The process of milling resulted in a lot of dust, hence the nickname Dusty.

Hi. will Murphy here again. Hi Floyd. As I mentioned before in these posts Our family lived on Ubique Ave.. Your family and ours were friends. I was born 1948. We left Shilo in late 1960. I certainly remember the Hamer family name. Floyd as a young boy I recall more than one birthday party with the kids. I remember your Mum would put nickels or quarters or some coinage in the birthday cakes. Wrapped in wax paper. ....Birthday parties in Shilo were always fun.
... I went on to Air Force in Fire Fighter ..Crash Rescue..

Ditto on the Happy New Year. Happy and Healthy to be sure.CFB

thanks for the suggestion, Barb. A reader of my blog gave me the same reference but I doubt the nickname comes from a plant Bill's example of Pro ball player seems more likely but I have a feeling it has a military origin. Thanks for taking the time to respond.

Hi Gerry. We lived in the next duplex to you back then at 107 Kingston. My parents (Floyd & Chris) were friends with your parents. Two of my sisters, Gwen & Brenda, almost ten years older than me, were teenagers then and hung out with your sisters Lorraine and poor Yvonne. I remember few other details from almost 70 years ago, but oddly I recall your dad having an old Chevrolet and I believe one of your older brothers and me shared the same birthday, January 24th. Happy New Year!
