It will be 175 years...

This summer will mark 175 years since the first regatta was held at Sturgeon Point.  We would like to do a bang-up display for the Civic Holiday Weekend.  To do that we need your photos of Regattas past.  So pull out your photo albums, boxes, slides, etc. and go hunting.  You can send your pictures by snail mail or e-mail to the History Project or SPA or drop them off in the SPA mailbox at the Park.  We know that there are gems hanging on your walls and stuck to your fridge... peel them off and send them in. 
In years past there were more tangible prizes than ribbons awarded.  If you have a trophy, a pennant, a pin, a paddle or some other item that was awarded and you are willing to allow them to be displayed, please drop me an e-mail and arrangements will be made.
We appreciate your participation and look forward to seeing how amazing we all looked in 1973... or 1942... or 1928...
