Remember When: Featured in these photos is the 1987 staff of the sewing room at the Alberta Hospital, who were always busy all year round making and repairing all sorts of clothing items, uniforms, and accessories for the hundreds of patients and staff of the provincial psychiatric treatment and training facility near Ponoka. Shown from left to right are: Doreen Rausch, Kathy Schmidt, Jo Nichols, and Mary Holman, and there were many others who performed their sewing and design magic and skills for many decades at the very busy hospital.
