1980 - TERRY FOX ARRIVES IN MARMORA

MARMORA HERALD,  JULY 9, 1980

 Do You Remember?

"I remember that event. 1980. I was 6 years old and we saw Terry Fox on Hwy. 7 at the gas station that I believe was owned by the Morrisons"  - Jenny Bedore Hyland

" I was there too on Hwy 7 at Tiffin Road." - Paul Scott

"I was there - just before Marmora on the hwy 7 at KOA turnoff"  -  Marilyn Reynolds

" I was there. I was 4. We watched him arrive at the IGA. I remember him standing on the loading area speaking. There were people everywhere. Big garbage bags were being passed around and being filled with donations."  Jeanette Rodine Fluke

" I wasn't there...my Mom, Cathy Callfas, asked me if I wanted to go, but me...thinking that this was just someone who was a nobody not really proving anything, a short lived event... said No. I just couldn't have been bothered wasting my time. Boy, I was I wrong!!!"   Barb Callfas Duff
