Kimberley Dynamiters: 0230.0001

Kimberley Dynamiters





This weekend was one to remember in Kimberly, especially if you were a hockey fan or a former (or current) member of the scouting movement.  In the top photo, the Kimberley dynamiters honoured original members, and family of the original 1931-32 edition of the senior hockey team.  They had a big birthday cake for everyone, and the guests of honour were brought on to the ice surface in a 1931 automobile.  Standing for the introductions, from left:  Fred Kozak, son of the late Paul Kozak, Mrs. Bruno Fabro wife of the late Earl Mellor, Mrs. Jessie Kemp, wife of the late Puffy Kemp, Red Livingstone, son of Dynamiter Jimmy Livingstone, and originals Hugo and Dub Mackie.  Master of ceremonies is Bud Buckle. 


In photo below, the scouts attend the 75th anniversary beacon fire at Coronation Park last night.  This fire was lit to coincide exactly with other fire throughout Canada.  Many past and present members turned out for the anniversary weekend in Kimberley.  Former scout Jim Davis does the honours, while a big crowd looks on.
