Note from a a volunteer (Thank you Randy!)
Just passing along a few Free Press negatives that I scanned a while back. I just came across the story on microfim. The team is from Christian Island. It was the First Annual Inter Reserve Georgian Bay District Men’s Hockey Tournament. It was held in Elmvale. This was back in 1973. Rev. Len Self who is in the pic was the organizer. (I believe he was a Midlander and was quite involved in hockey)
This is the winning team and it was from Parry Island

Herman Robinson Jr paid the museum a visit last week. Mr Robinson, born in 1923, asked to see the pipe organ. When he told us that he played it, we couldn’t be happier than to let him sit down in front of it.
He told us of how it came to be in Vasey, how it was brought there by oxen and sleigh from Toronto, and how it took 6 days.
When we asked to take photos he was more than happy to oblige.
