This is actually a newspaper clipping from the Barry’s Bay Review. It’s a high school hockey team in 1960 representing St. Joseph’s High School which was located where today’s Beer Store is. Next door was the arena (today’s Valu-Mart) and the picture does a good job of displaying the interior of the rink. The article doesn’t give all the first names of the players but I can provide them. Front row: Tommy Wojick, Jerome Golka, Kenny Recoskie, Bobby Crawford, Weldon Coulas, Billy Mackin, Ziggy Mintha. Back row: Ron Mintha, Kevin Coyne, Richard Shalla, Ray Zelney, Michael Ritza, Roy Kulas, Sidney Coulas, Mervin Yandernoll.
