Thanks guys
I've started one of many scrapbooks from the hospitals volunteer association
Please keep in mind that the first one is from 50yrs ago. some of the pics maybe crooked or a little blurry on one side this is because of the placement in the book and the way it fits on my scanner. Short of wrecking the book this is the way it is.
I really need a bigger scanner with a larger scanning area...I'm up for donations :lol: :lmao: JK
It's on my X-mas list

Thanks don
I was thinking of more into the future of if I get my greedy little hands on the sports pics.
My scanner will do about 8x11 only.some of the older pics I've seen won't fit

Yesterday Don emailed me about progress on the hockey pics (more on that later) anyway he told me he found a book about the history of our hospital,naturally I went and picked it up, read it and scanned it :)
And with permission from the Hospital Foundation (helps to know ppl sometimes) I was able to upload the book into the vault. It's full of stories and pictures from the beginning up into the 90's. Written by Janet Duval - A local writer and former High School Teacher and hospital board member. She also wrote Chair of the board in the United Church of Canada.
If you want your own copy you can contact the hospital at 905 873-0111 and ask for foundation..
Ok on to hockey, Some where along the line the GMHA pics have gone from the web. Don and I are going to be sorting them out and scanning them on to the vault and making discs for the sports museum. From what I understand there are thousands and thousands of pics...Hopefully we'll be starting this soon, Don already has. I'm sure this will take us at least a year to finish. By the sounds of it just organizing them will take forever. But I'm overly excited about this...
