Ruth Eden - Centennial Carnival Queen -1984

Our family has travelled from the West Coast to the East Coast of Canada and many parts of the United States. Ruth has also been to the Yukon, Northwest Territories, Mexico and the Caribbean. In 1998, Clifford and Margaret travelled to Iceland where they visited Margaret's pater­ nal relatives, walking in the farmyards where her grandparents were raised as children. Between business and pleasure, our travels have been very educational and rewarding, to say the least.

As the 20th Century ends and we go into the new Millennium, we patiently wait for our third grandchild. Editor S Note: Sydni Amanda was born on Febrnary 8, 2000 at H.S.C., Winnipeg - a little sister for Blake and Amber.
