Fishing in Canada

Dr. Van Vahle and Courtney Meyer with some help from Art Schauer, presented the program at Kiwanis this noon. They presented pictures and told stories of fishing in a lake on the Albany River in Canada, 325 miles north of the US Border. Courtney told of having been up there numerous times following his first visit in 1987. It is in an area where French Fur Traders worked with the Native Indians to develop a community. They were also instrumental in bringing Christian Missionaries to further the development of the area. John Grace was recognized as having developed the fishing resort from an old Park.  Courtney has been instrumental in getting many local people up there to enjoy the fishing, wildlife, and comradery. It brought back memories of Elaine and my fishing trip to Canada back in 1997 with Willard and Audrey Kilzer.
