Just to let you know, Carol's reunion photos, located further down this blog page, have been annotated with the names of their subjects. I believe I identified everyone correctly, but I'm sure I'll hear about it otherwise. See you soon.
Hello good people. Hope your summer is going swimmingly. Just home from the lake to do a mountain of laundry and to shop. Found this letter in the website mailbox from our good friend Vern Zubrycki, former English teacher at Miles Mac...
I've been checking ComeHomeMilesMac74 from time to time and must say, you are doing a fantastic job, both info-wise and creatively. The ongoing camaraderie shown on this site is unique, as is the large number of participants from the class of '74.
Your grade 10 English grade has been raised to A+.
Sorry I missed seeing most of you at the reunion.
p.s. Will the names soon be posted identifying '74 grads in the re-union photos? Very curious here.
Ed. note; Great to hear from you, Mr. Z. That A+ will be going up on the wall alongside the grade one spelling bee trophy.We'll let you know when the next '74 reunion bash is happening, just in case you were wanting to make that a personal presentation. As for the names of the reunion goers, we'll get right on that, sir...
Ok, so I missed recognizing our nation's birthday on the website. Does this mean I actually have a life outside of this virtual cubicle? Not really. It only means that my capacity to remember more than one thing at a time is slowly slipping away. Nevertheless, this awesome metallic tribute to our great nation is worth a listen. Happy belated birthday to an amazing country!
Hi. It's Clark's little sister. Sure wish I was in your year. I was a year or so behind (graduated kind of between '75 and '76). This is just a terrific site. Very sad to hear about Roman Naumiuk. Much too young to go. I also have fantastic memories of Roy Purvis. He was one in a million. Great job with this.
-Laura Hawkins (McCaw)-
Ed. note; Wonderful to hear from you, Laura. Thank you for your thoughts on Roman and Roy. Perhaps we could hold a referendum on your honorary inclusion in the Class of '74. I don't think anybody would have a problem with that, especially if they knew that not only are you the sister of the legendary Clark McCaw and that some of your BFFs are '74 grads, but also that you have far more media savvy than the poor sods that run this e-rag...

It Happened In '74
Inflation continued to spiral out of control around the world, reaching 11.3% in the USA and 12.6% in Canada, as the global recession deepened. The famous skeleton of "Lucy", who lived between 3 and 3.9 million years ago is discovered in Ethiopia . More and more smaller digital based consumer products appear in stores and the earliest forms of Word Processors appear which resemble a typewriter more than a computer. After the findings of the Watergate Scandal Richard Nixon becomes the first US president forced to resign from office.
