Good times on memory lane

Reader compliments hospitality of strangers while visiting Alberni.

To the Editor,

When our kids visit sometimes we drive back to Port Alberni where my husband worked at Somass in the 1960s, and I worked weekends at Woodwards.

Around noon on July 8 our son took a picture of Eric J. Dunn school and then Maquinna where he and his siblings went to school, and then of our old home on 10th Avenue. The present owners came out and insisted I come in and see the changes.

The kitchen sink was no longer in a bar in the middle of the floor but under the window. LOL. It was so beautiful. My pictures of their beautiful landscaped backyard didn’t turn out.

The hospitality shown by complete strangers was so overwhelming. We have moved to many pulp mill places and never have we returned to a former home and were so pleased. Port Alberni, you look good.
