I wish to thank everybody that ventured out on one of the stormiest days of this winter to make my book launch of “CREEMORE as Remembered by Gerry Blackburn” such a success. I must also thank those, who assisted me in writing this book. They include my dear friend Joan, who not only assisted in editing, but also in coordinating sales. Bill and my family for your editing help and support. Hazel Gilchrist Parrish also for editing and Murray Skinkle for his constant pressure on me to write this book. Also the many others who provided pictures, information and encouragement. To Trina and the staff of The Echo office for their excellent promotional article as well as assistance with sales. And finally my deepest thanks to you who have purchased my book. Thank you all. Gerry Blackburn
