Remember When? Glen and Martha Johnston farmed in the Chinook district for many years before moving their growing family to the Ferrybank area west of Ponoka, where they continued to farm and Glen got into politics. In the early 1950s the Johnston family purchased the palatial George D. Clark family home across from the Catholic Church at 5120 52nd Avenue in Ponoka and spent 42 very active and enjoyable years there. Shown in this 1954 family photo are, back row, left to right: Howie Johnston, Allan Johnston, Ronny Johnston, and Dale Johnston, and then seated in the middle row is: Marjie Johnston, Glen and Martha Johnston, Noreen Johnston, with Donna Johnston in front.
