A great trip down memory lane

Armstrong Homecoming 100 weekend a memorable one thanks to all involved

Please pass our thanks to Armstrong Rotary President Shirley Fowler, all club members, and everyone who made the Centennial weekend, July 4 to 7, 2013,  Armstrong Homecoming 100, Looking Back – Moving Forward, a memorable one.

We thoroughly enjoyed the play, “All About The People,” at the Asparagus Theatre – with excellent information, actors, and musicians.

Also the set design was superb.

The smiling Welcome Committee at the Hassen Hall, were helpful, and a delight to meet.

Jessie Ann Gamble and Craig McKecknie were excellent tour guides on the bus routes arranged to see the many places we remembered.

It was a great trip down memory lane, or should I say the back roads of Armstrong.

Seeing the ‘old Elementary School’ was humbling, realizing that within these very walls, we all started our journey of learning new rules, reading books, learning about life in other parts of the world, and more importantly, meeting our future friends.

Meeting many friends during the weekend was a highlight,  and it wouldn’t have been possible, without the many hundreds of people that came together with vision, dedication, and energy to plan such an exciting time.

Thank you again for the scrumptious meals, tours, and events packed into one memorable weekend.

Armstrong was a great place to grow up in, and it remains a place with many giving people who continue to make it a proud place to visit.

With sincere thanks to all,


Paul and Deanna (Buyer) MacDonald
