During the month more audio files from the Knight Collection were added. We hope to add to this when volunteer Chris Adams returns from his trip to England as he has been reviewing the vintage recordings to better determine content. We also want to confirm copyright status of these recordings.
Two articles have been added to the people and families section, one is a 1997 article contributed by Rollie Rose about Cliff Tollefson, former owner of the Ladysmith landmark Travellers Hotel. To go directly to the page click on The Challenges of Being Cliff
The second article is about Ladysmith Native son Bob Timothy who passed away this month. The article was contributed by Vince Herkel on behalf of the Ladysmith Horseshoe Club and provides Bob’s history of the creation of the HorseShoe Pitch facility in Transfer Beach park.
Bob is recognized as the founder of the Transfer Beach Horseshoe Pitching facility and in his honour, the Ladysmith Horseshoe Club has initiated a fund raising campaign called “A PARK BENCH FOR BOB”
Their goal is to raise $2500 in order to place a memorial bench at the Horseshoe pitch at Transfer Beach. Donations in any amount would be appreciated towards that goal
