I joined the Evergreens in the Fall of 1973 and toured with them to Japan in 1974,78 and again in 1982 When I joined the Club was known as the OldStylers and later the Whoi-Whois. Bad knees and an aging body resulted in my rugby retirement in 1982.
I worked in the BC Corrections Branch (Probation) for 34 years retiring to Roberts Creek in 1988.
I have wonderful memories of my time with the Evergreens and well remember Graham, John Smith, Tom Taylor, Rolie, Gary Fumano , Jack Ford and many others.
Reading Neil Sweeny's obituary brought back great memories of my time with the Evergreens.
A neighbour and friend of mine (Vern Loffstrom --also an Evergreen) meet regularly and perhaps one day we can come in to one of your Social Events or even to watch a game. I won't bring along my togs as my aging body and advancing years wouldn't permit that.
With all best wishes for the future........Al
