Dance Troupe

Phil Ashton was the manager of Guildford during the years that we were part of the scene. He said that Mickey and I were good ambassadors for the mall, and good for business. For any of the different promotions they held, they knew we would go in costume, and participate in the overall picture.

During Western Days they asked if we could get any of the native Indians to participate… so we invited Bob George and his dance troupe. Bob, Lenny, Ann and Marie were all Dan’s family. Dominic Charlie and his wife were there as were some of Dan’s nieces and nephews. A great group that put on some good shows in the mall.

At this show Mickey had told Bob something that I was unaware of.  They were doing the show, and Bob made an announcement. The next song was for his sister, Norma McGuire, as it was her birthday that day.

The following year we were at a gathering at the reserve in North Vancouver, and the same group was the entertainment.  And Bob dedicated a song to his sister, Norma McGuire, once again for my birthday. I was shocked and very pleased that he remembered it!

Many, many happy memories from our brothers and sisters.
