Hay River LunchRead Now
At the Hay River lunch on May 10, daughters of two of the men featured in my book about Gordon Gill were pleased to see their families listed in the Index (thanks to Tracy for doing such a good index!) and referred to in the book. Bill Rowe's daughter told bushpilot Merlyn Carter's daughter about the time Bill and his partner Keith Broadhead hired Merlyn to fly them to Fort Providence, west of Hay River on the Mackenzie River. Apparently they were all surprised when Merlyn landed them at Fort Resolution, which is east of town, about the same distance. And knowing Bill Rowe, Merlyn would have heard about that for a long, long time!
There were a lot of good stories told at the get together.
