  1. While researching architecture and floor plans for the home my father grew up in at ATCO, I stumbled across this website. Thrilled beyond belief, I got with my dad and together we revisited the place he grew up at. Thank you so much for this opportunity and maintaining history for the younger generations.

  2. Thank YOU for finding us! Be sure to check out our Facebook page, too! We have lots more photos there that I haven't transferred here yet. We have almost 300 members, and your dad might very well know some of us! What's your dad's name? You can email me if you'd rather: I might be able to put him in touch with old friends if he's interested!
