Rob Galey of Galey Farms was our speaker in November. His talk was interesting and informative about the farm that I think most of us are aware of and are often customers. I hope that you watch and enjoy. The direct link to the video on You Tube is at https://youtu.be/LdoIP58TCa0 or you can see it via our blog at https://royaloakschoolyard.blogspot.com/
My best wishes to all for a Happy and Fulfilling New Year.
Gary picks up where he left off in Part 1 of his Oral History video. I think that you will enjoy watching and find it entertaining. The direct link to Youtube is https://youtu.be/-sILOrZuRSs or you can view it via the link on our blog oral history page.
Quayle and Marson are two names that most people who lived in or around Royal Oak will know..
In this video Dianne (Quayle) Moore, the daughter of Alf and Loraine (Marson) Quayle talks about her family and her time growing up in Royal Oak. Their home was the first house past the Thatch/Maltwoods. Trivia question? Did any of our speakers live closer to the center of Royal Oak, the corner of East and West Saanich Roads than Dianne? I can think of one family that lived closer and one that would probably be in a tie but they have not yet been speakers.
The link to Dianne's very interesting and entertaining talk is on the oral history page of our Blog, and the direct link to YouTube is below.
One of the highlights of David Squance's January talk was about the time the family owned Norfolk Lodge, a home that I am sure most of you have seen many times, but perhaps did not know it by that name. If you were not there to hear the original presentation I hope that you will have a look. Another great addition to our growing collection of oral history videos connected to the greater Royal Oak area.
We all, I think, sometimes sit around with friends and family and talk about the good old days. I would sure like to be around 50 or a hundred years from now to watch these videos again and reflect on those good old days.
