Irwin Stewart – 20/03/22 – 05/04/14

It is with great sadness that I anounce the passing of my friend Irwin Stewart on April 5, 2014 at the age of 92. Irwin leaves behind quite a legacy, especially as a horseman. Born just outside of Wakefield on Edelweiss rd. back on March 20 1922 where he grew up working on the family farm. I met him back in 1994 when I moved on Clark rd. I liked him immediately.  His soft spoken personality would make you instantly at ease. When I shook his huge coarse hand, you could tell this was a hard working man.

Just today I found out about his death through a friend as there has been no mention in the local newspaper.

This important article will be finished very soon so I invite you to visit the site again for the full version.  So much to say about Irwin Stewart.  THANK YOU

We also have a 2013 i...

Many generations have attended this school and have developed a fond affiliation that still exists in the hearts of the local population. This school represents many loving  memories…. and rightfully so.  Certain residents have expressed their opposition to the building of a new school on Riverside rd.????  Even if the old school was to be demolished and rebuilt , there are many obvious reasons that the school should be relocated. Yes the time has come to evolve and build a brand new school on Riverside rd. This initiative should be clarified, so all the facts of this positive project are brought to light.  Here are the facts :
