It was on this day back on July 13, 1980, that I had the privilege to see and listen to Terry Fox.

Terry Fox at the RBG in Aldershot July 13, 1980

I was able to just go down the street from my family home in Aldershot to the Royal Botanical Gardens Headquarters, Plains Rd W., where Terry made a stop.

It was a small gathering but it was there nice and close. I was there with my Kodak Instamatic camera. The attached photos are a photo of my original photos.

I believe the man in the light suit with white hair was Peter Pomeroy, Chair of Halton Region.

PS. I used to deliver the Burlington Gazette in Aldershot
