Reflections has longtime fans

I just want to let you know how much I enjoy the Reflections of Ponoka stories.

Dear Editor:

I just want to let you know how much I enjoy the Reflections of Ponoka stories. They certainly bring back a ton of memories of when I grew up in Ponoka in the mid-50s. The Reflections about the air cadets mentions names of fellows, Brian Young, Ernie Ellis, that I knew. I played with the Broncs in 1955 (still have my club jacket), and even spotted myself in an old class picture you ran some editions ago.

It was the best of times and the worst of times for me back then. Worst because polio put me in a wheelchair for life and I never did get back to good old PCHS after that. I live in Edmonton now but have often thought of returning home to Ponoka. I’m a faithful reader of the online paper.

Keep the reflections coming Mike.
