Terry, an unspoiled, refreshingly natural boy, is shown here with the medals and trophies he has won. Each one will always be a reminder of an occasion; and each one has been the result of hours of practice, a love of dancing and the ability to do it well. This year, 1969, he plans on trying for a piping championship in B.C.

Terry's young brother, Jack, also saw the light of day for the first time in the Portage la Prairie General Hospital, and was ushered into the world by the same doctor, Dr. G. H. Hamlin. He is considered a talented piper and accompanies Terry at various entertainments. He was forbidden this privilege at the Highland Games, due to his age.

A sister, Maureen, 7 or 8 years of age, is also a dancer.
