The photo maybe from J. Sunderwood
Credit to Keith Rajala
My good friend Julie Martiniuk (former owners of Stone Boat Winery) suggested I let you know that I have some old photos of Oliver Elementary School back in 1945.
I have included the grade 3 class from April, 1945 with the teacher June Lans who married Toivo Rajala and I am their son, Keith Rajala. I thought there’s got to be someone in that photo who is still in your area. I have no idea of any of the student names.
Feel free to use the picture in your paper if you so desire. I would just like being credited as the source of the picture.
I scanned the photo that my mom had kept. The photo was taken by J. Sunderwood from Penticton. At least that is what is printed on the back of the photo.
More to come – thanks Keith

“Well, just thank you to everyone for that overwhelming vote of confidence. It’s humbling. And thank you to the people who work so hard to get me elected. Thank you to the people who did things in their own little way, whether it was talking me up among friends or liking a post on Facebook or putting up a lawn sign,” he said.
James Miller replaces Jake Kimberley who resigned due to ill health.
Mr. Miller asked me about a conflict between a reporter and an elected official. I serve the people for 17 years and many times accused of a conflict. Each time the Town sought legal advice the lawyers continued to say NO conflict.
James will do a great job for Penticton.
Sorry about the cig in the pix Mr. Miller
The officials at one prison thought it would be a good idea to provide all willing inmates with a Mother’s Day card to send to their mothers. The response from the inmates was positive. Many were glad to use them. They then decided to do the same thing for Father’s Day, the next month in June. Few responded.
Some didn’t know where, or even who, the father was.
Some knew but resented the father and refused the card.
Some were indifferent and didn’t really care enough to send a card.
A few took the card and sent it.
Contrast that with this excerpt from an unknown author’s tribute to his father.
Dad Is My Hero
The world has many heroes who have won a world of fame.
Heroes who have given their all to win in life’s great game.
But of all the famous heroes that our changing world has had,
There is not one I look up to or admire more than dad.
To me my dad’s a hero, though he’d turn away from praise.
He’s heroic in his quiet strength and gentle giving ways.
Most of us fathers find ourselves somewhere between the villain and the hero. We can’t measure up to the ideal but we can do something to move towards it.
Happy Father’s Day,
