The Town of Temagami Guestbook

Back to Temagami Homepage

Go to the new guestbook!

I've eliminated the link to add posts to this guestbook. The amount of junk posts was getting overwhelming and time didn't allow me to keep it as clean as it should be. The new guestbook link has replaced the old add link.

I have set up a new guestbook. You can find it at I have added modifications to it to stop harmful scripts and allow me to verify posts by email notification before they go public to make sure nothing is posted to the site that could be offensive. Posts that haven't been verified yet will simple display an unavailable message until I activate it. Since I am rarely away, activation will be within a day most times. If things go smoothly without spam, I will turn off email verification so posting will be immediate. Please give me feedback as to what you might like to see added to the guestbook, or problems encountered. I plan on adding a button so users can choose to display their email address if they like - the default right now is not to display, and can't be changed. So if you want people to contact you, leave it in the comments box too. :)

Not sure how many of you have noticed, but the Temagami Guestbook has come under attack by spam bots that are pasting in piles of links to porn sites and other garbage. While I have removed these posts once noticed three times now, it is clear that this is going to be an ongoing problem that can't be solved unless the script is changed to prevent this type of thing from happening. While I am able to clear out these posts, I am unable to edit the script that drives this particular guestbook. I am willing to set up a guestbook for people to use, like this one, but with a different type of script that I can use and edit to respond to these types of threats. While I have strived to help out by creating a forum at my website at where your can keep in touch and ask questions, it hasn't recieved much use yet. If people are interested in a guestbook instead, or would like to see something like this guestbook continue without the garbage, please email me and let me know. If enough people respond, I'd be happy to try and set something up and keep it running.

I worked at Camp Wabikon during the summer of 1992; I had a great time and was able to really take in the lake, scenery, and the people. If I'm not mistaken, a couple from Southern Ontario (Toronto, I think) owned Wabikon at that time. One of the owner's was named "Margaret" and I forget the other person. While I was there there it was quite the international group of campers. I met people from Europe, the United States, and all over Canada. I hope the camp is still up and running and that people from all over have the opportunity to experience such a wonderful part of Canada.

It's been 2 years since I visited the Guestbbook. It helps to think of Temagami when the themometer outside my window reads 116 degrees! Ans I think of it when I swim daily in our pool, since I learned to swim in Lake Temagami in 1950! I'm still interested in Wabikon campers from those days. . .

During the mid 1940's, I visited a YMCA camp on Lake Temagami owned by the Cleveland YMCA. It was called North Woods. I know it no longer exists, but can you kindly tell me the island where it was located? I remember with fondness the great launches that would take us from downtown to the island. Anything you could provide would be greatly appreciated. We stayed at We are going to visit in the near future and stay at the Ttemagami Shores hotel.

Hello, My name is Fred Petrant. I was born in Temagami in 1958 in a log cabin. Moved away in 1967 but frequently reside in my hideouts around town and at the mine landing. I have resided on Bear Island for the last 12 years but have been banned from there for the last five years. But, I continue to visit there steady as my family history goes as far back to the 1870's. I am interested in taking people out on camping trips up to maple mountain The second highest point in all of Ontario! Also to historical sights on Lake Temagami to view our pictographs as well as our historical camp sites and famous battle grounds of the wars we had with the Iroquois in the 1870's. If you are interested in more history of the Temagami Indian's you can contact me by e-mail address and I will get back to you.

I was feeling a little "homesick" and thought I would drop by. Great site. Reading all the comments from all the people who have Temagami in their soul made me feel alot better. I was called to the Bar of Ontario a few years ago and am working in the Corporate Compliance field in Toronto with one of the Big Five Banks. It's been great. I grew up in North Bay and Temagami and spent much of my time in Temagami between the years of 1975 to 1987 (from about 4 years old to 16 years of age) and made many friends (Rodney and Waylon Johnson, etc.) while spending time at my grandparents place on the hill above the old Ted's Convenience Store. My grandmother, Mrs. Evelyn Hamilton lives in North Bay and my grandfather passed away on February 17, 2003. Both people, especially my grandmother, have been the most wonderful influences on my life and nurtured a love for Temagami that will be with me until I die.

My son is thinking of driving to Temagami over his Spring Break, to stay at his aunts cottage. He has been there before in early spring and there was a road open from the town of Temagami to Bear Island where he could snowshoe to the island. I'd appreciate knowing if the road is there this year too.

Yes, I knew that John. However, my family first moved to Temagami in 1947 where my Dad worked for L&F, today called MNR,so I'm looking for an earlier date than 1967, when Temagami must have been given the designation as a town. Incidentally, my first job, was at a store owned by Butch Spooner, called the Temagami Trading Post. I was in Grade 7, and worked every day after school, and all day Sat. My pay was $3.00 a week.

I am wondering when the spelling of "Temagami" was changed from "Timagami". I have a couple of historic artifacts that indicate the spelling as Timagami. One is an art etching titled "Islands in Lake Timagami" by Yvonne Kathleen Carr dated 1936, and the other is an old sterling spoon.

There was a boat called the Grey Owl that went all over Lake Temagami. It was really an original World War II boat that was used in a convoy to protect larger supplies carriers. This boat was purchased by the Ontario Northlands Railway and used to carry people and supplies to their camps on Lake Temagami. The driver I remember of this boat was a Temagami resident by the name of Joe Beaucage.

WOW !!!!!!!!!!! What a trip back in time. Just found the site. Read about a lot of people and places that bring back a lot of memories. Sandra and I moved to Temagami in '73 and left in '78. Sandra was a teacher, and I a mechanic at "Garry's BP" and at "Milne and Sons Lumber Mill", and at "Temagami Marine" We lived in the street side appartment over the post office, across from the "White House" Must have been a sad day when it went down. Been through Temagami a few times in our travels, and still wonder at it's beauty. We are planning a 6 - 7 day canoe trip with friends in '04 in the Lady Evelyn area. Hope to hear from You. Adrian and Sandra Tessier

Greetings from the other cottage country, Kazabazua Quebec. Congratulations to all of those who ran in the recent municipal election. Win or lose, running for council is one of the most intense ways of fulfilling our civic responsibilities. Congratulations also to those who won, (including my son Kelly). Hopefully this will be one of the best councils Temagami has had in some time. There are real opportunities out there again, and it's time Temagami grabbed the brass ring.

Hello to all. I finally managed to purchase a cottage on Lake Temagami. I fell in love with this lake the first time I saw it. The spirit of the lake has never left me. This is where my soul calls home. I look forward to meeting those who call it home as well. I would like to thank Don and his wife at Century 21 for all their help. I have traveled the lake many times over the years but it has always been during the summer. Now I wish to come during the winter. Our cottage is on Island 985 just southwest of Bear Island if any one could pass along some of the dangers and concerns of this area I would appreicate it. I have a Polaris Ranger ATV (with tracks )which when loaded is about 2,000 lbs. please contact me at

Hey everybody, i was up a few weeks ago, and i was at the legion for the kareokee. Well After the night was done i was talking to this girl that didn't live up there but was viting her aunt. i can't remember her aunts first name but he last name was Renoult or Reneau or Renaux. I would like to get in touch with her neice again, becuase we had such a good time while we were there. If someone could possibly get ahold of her aunt, her neice lives in Ottawa and should be back up for christmas, she doesn't have a computer or a phone but she does have a cell phone that she told me to ask her aunt for the number. so possibly, is someone could grab that for me, it would be excellent :) By The Way, Excellent Website, im in the buisness of Web Design as well. Check out for my work. Have a good one, hope to be back up soon!

I will remember it always, because of the fantastic hikes, incredible views, and friendly people. Thanks Kev, I wouldn't have wanted to share it with anybody else but you. Bye for now Temagami! I am sure that I will return, it's a rather addicting place. What an amazing experience.

had some good times in Temagami!! i enjoyed my first hunting kill, managing to pick off a monstrous beastly squirrel from approximately 2.5 inches. speaking of two point five inches, my friend andy was with me on my second trip. in my time there, i crapped myself at 160 kmph across lake herage on a ski-do, fell asleep after 3 minutes of ice fishing, disabled myself by snow shoeing over the lake, needlesley (thanks robbie), was stalked by a killer mouse in the bedroom, fell out of a canoe, was dragged down a white water rapid river of death, pulled leaches from danielle's feet, was ten feet from death in danielle's car of horror, and was served by temagemi's most beautiful shop assistant. all in all, excellent. hope everything's good, and good luck with all that snow.

What a terrific webpage! My husband and I were up at our cottage in Temagami Sept. 19 - Sept. 21. As always, it was wonderful to visit, however, a horrible vehicle accident occured on Sept. 20th just up the road (Hwy 11) from our cottage. The wheel from a transport truck came off and the truck hit an oncoming car (it looked like a white Taurus, but I'm not sure of vehicle was crushed beyond recognition). I was wondering if anyone knows how the truck driver and occupants of the oncoming vehicle are doing? Did they all survive? I saw the driver's airbag had deployed in the car, so there was possibly hope for the driver's survival. I sincerely hope that everyone survived.

Many years ago...I guess about 40 friend invited me to go with her family to Lake Temagami. We stayed in some cabins on a lake and had a most wonderful time. We met a girl by the lake named Rita and a bear came to our cabin! It was such a beautiful place...these many years later I remember it with joy. My friend's family were the Bartus family and her Dad fished for days.we sunned ourselves on a small dock and swam in the lake. Maybe someday, I will get to go back.

Last year I had the oportunity to take my wife and son to Temagami for a short holiday. This year however we were unable to take holidays. Temagami is a beautiful scenic town and area with tons to see and do and is a wonderful change of pace from the ratrace of the city. So just wanted to say how much I miss it. Also if any of the old guests from Ridgewood Cottages see this and knew me or my parents (Gill and Irwin Gould) feel free to drop me a line. Thx and hope to see the area next year.

It was fun to look through the guest book but I am afraid I only recognize a few names. I have been gone a long time. I know that there has been a few changes since I left. Who could imagine driving up to the fire tower!? If anyone who remembers my name cares to drop an e-mail, I would be happy to receive it.

Reposted from May 4, 1953 An oil slick on the surface of a northern lake may help solve the mystery of the lumber tug White Bear and four men aboard her. A fleet of red canoes scouring Rabbit Lake is seeking such a slick or even bubbles of fuel oil from the diesel-driven tug's 200 gallon tank. Police say oil traces will probably afford the only hope of finding the White Bear, believed to have blown up last Thursday and gone down in 200 feet of water with all hands.

Missing and feared drowned are Leslie Taske, 23, captain of the tug; Fred Kozik, 21, of Ottawa, woods foreman of the Gillies Brothers Lumber Company; and lumberjacks Leonard Conroy, 19, and Edward Hamilton, 61.

Taske and conroy came from Quebec province. Hamilton, whose brother Tom is in Sudbury, lived at Temagami more than 30 years. Tom Hamilton began working at 72 Samuel St., bartender at the Queen's Hotel for 14 years, said he knew his brother was working in the Temagami Lake area but he didn't know his brother was missing until called by a Daily Sudbury Star reporter Sunday night. He said his brother was born at Gaspe, Quebec, but worked as a lumberman in the Temagami district most of his life. Another brother, James, lives in Port Arthur.

Taske was in his third year as skipper of the White Bear. The tug had been in constant use since the spring break-up April 13.

The tug was towing a 23-foot six-ton boat when it set out Thursday on an 18-mile trip from the Gillies Mill in a large log boom in the southeast bay of Rabbit Lake about ten miles west of this Northern Ontario resort centre and some 65 miles north of North Bay.

it is believed all four men were on the White Bear, which had a cookstove and cabin facilities.

I was stunned to learn of Kim's sudden passing. There are not enough words to express how I feel. I really wish I would have been able to go to the service. Unfortunately, I did not know what had happened until the afternoon of the 14th. I have known Kim since Kindergarten. I have so many memories of her. Like sitting behind her and Debbie for four years on the bus for the trek to highschool. I can still see them wrapped up in blankets with their coffees trying to stay warm on one of the many -30 mornings the heat on the bus didn't work. The Temagamians had it pretty tough in those days. It's true what they say, only the good die young. will be really really missed.

When I was a small child, we would go to tamagami to camp in our trailor. Since then my parents have divorced, and can’t seem to get the information about where we stayed from either of them. This is what I remember (bits a pieces). A big white rock on the face of a hill, which was marbled with black. It was smooth and there was this other little girl there and we would climb to the top and slide down it. At the bottom was grass so tall it was almost over my head. I hid there from my mother once, she wasn’t too happy about it. In town there was a store with an ice cream shop in it that sold Tiger Tail ice cream (orange with liquorice flavour lines in it). I remember 2 docks at the campground, the one on the right was ok, and the one of the left was sinking. There was a boat storage area near the shore on one side of the docks. It was shallow there and there were some very large tadpoles I would always try to catch. There were large leaves of some plant near the boat area, where the other girl and I would take gravel and fill the leaf and try and sink it on a tadpole (we were 6 yrs old at most…). I remember there was a place to gut fish just to the right of the right dock. The water was cold, so we didn’t swim much. There was a museum, over some rapids or something (it seemed pretty high up to me, and it was hanging over the river). In the museum there were animal skeletons, but that’s all I remember. Any idea on where these places might be? I can be reached by e-mail.

I understand Camp Temagami staff are carring on the same traditions can anyone give me any further information? I am also thinking of producing a documentary about my experiences and bring the area up to date in the documentary.

If you visit Cobalt's website at and then click on guestbook, you will note if you look down 5 or 6 entries, a request there from Helen Culhane. She is asking for anyone who has some story of interest about Cobalt, the town, the High School, a memory highlight of an event, a store, etc,...she is hoping to assemble a book of these memories to be available this summer during the celebration. Please visit the website if you are interested and give it a shot, if you're so inclined. (Deadline is fast approaching so don't delay)

Hey Guys! You can still register for the Beard Growing Contest for this year's Winter Carnival. Get clean shaven today and then you don't have to worry about shaving for the next month and a half! Shave and then come on in to the Municipal Office and see me to register. The cost is only $5. For those of you who live out of town but plan on coming for the Winter Carnival (Feb. 21, 22, 23) all you have to do is shave and then take a picture of yourself with a digital camera holding a daily newspaper showing the date and e-mail it to me. You can pay your $5 registration fee when you arrive. Judging will take place Friday night after the opening ceremonies (Feb. 21) at the Old Tyme Bar at the Legion. Christmas and New Year's are over, let yourself go and register for the 2003 Beard Growing Contest for the Temagami Winter Carnival!

I was just thinking about the only year that we went back to Temagami for Christmas - that was the year that the Post Office burned to the ground with most of our presents in it.

Hello...We live in Marten River (now part of Temagami) on Pozniak's Road. We have been told that there used to be a building known as the Sisk Club next to us, but all that remains now is a concrete foundation. If anyone has any photos or stories of the Sisk Club we would be interested in knowing what it looked like, etc. Thanks.

I was wondering about the time line for the completion of the Temagami train station. I was up in July and noticed that there is much still to be done. Will there be a collection of historical photos? I hope so. Perhaps Jack Humphrey of North Bay could be helpful with that aspect. I did notice that the work done so far is quality work.

To Debra , Yes, As a young boy I do remember your parents at the Bear Island Store. I am a nephew of Bruce McDaniel (now deceased) and on two summer vacations spent time, when not boating, swimming, or making a nuisance of myself :-), buying soft drinks and swimming from the dock on Bear Island. Though I've since spent a number of weeks up there since, nothing captured the 'magic' of Temagami quite like through a child's eyes. And though my uncle always told me the Lake was 'magic', I never realized the metaphor until recent trips in my 'middle years'. Regards, Brad Bandow

Since I left my latest entry in the book, I have been catching up on all I missed during my long absence from Temagami websites (and the computer, actually)! Well, let me tell you I had printed a few pages which I was sharing with my husband while we were driving to Phoenix for dinner the other night! When I came to Darryl Lalonde's contribution of the recipe for "Temaskaming Milk Shakes", I thought we might have an auto accident!! I was laughing so hard, my words were almost unintelligible, but I had to wait until the next night, before I was able to get the words out better so my husband could understand it all! Even THEN I had difficulty! I have a very vivid imagination, and just the picture in my mind of someone holding to the pail with one hand, and the moose with the other, while trying to keep up with the moose...WELL, you get the idea. I may have to share the recipe with hundreds of my nearest and dearest friends. (With Mr. Lalonde's permission, of course.) Perhaps they would be just the thing to serve at holiday time. Now, I HAVE JUST THE RECIPE, for Darryl and all of you to serve WITH the shakes! Taken from MOOSE MOUSSE,(Published by Simon and Schuster, Inc. in 1964!) a cookbook which my Mother gave to me many years ago, when I was a young bride, I present to you: "MOOSE MOUSSE" Pass a moose through a fine sieve, add 3 beaten egg whites and a cup of light cream. Stir thoroughly and put into individual ramekins. Serves 53, more or less. I, personally have never tried the recipe, not having immediate access to a moose. If, however, one of you wishes to send me one, I would be most obliged to attempt to prepare the feast! In addition, if anyone is interested I could send you from time to time other delectable recipes from the book, such as: "Seared Roebuck" (it's a "stitch!) "Eggs en Brochette" "Malarky" "Fits Kaniption" "Potted Liver" "Gnu's Knees" "Cloven Hooves" & "Short Shrift Beef" among others... Bon Appetite Darryl and all you others! "Wabi" (Nancy) We're still waiting for a response to my last entry. (About where to stay on the Lake and WHERE is Jack Humphrey???) (Even his email address no longer works! I'm so used to seeing him often in the book. Time to fire this off...

It has been a long time since I've visited this site, due to our first move in 30 years! We were in central Illinois, but no matter where we live, my heart has remained in Temagami since the early to mid-50's when I was a camper and counselor at Camp Wabi-Kon. I am wondering where Jack Humphrey is these days since I don't see him in the book (I've only had time for a quick glance!) Also this was to have been the summer of our much overdo return visit. It's been about 6 years since our last, and that's way too long. Our timing has been "off" due to the problems associated with moving to a new part of the country, and remodeling a house! However, we are also finding that the lodges and places to stay on the lake have diminished in number! Any suggestions will be appreciated, for next year, if not this...please! We really do not want to stay on the mainland, but on the lake!

Just returned from a week in the Marten River area with a side trip to Temagami. Many Chautauqua County firefighters were welcomed by the Marten River Fire Department for a wonderful week of camraderie and lots of get-togethers! We're glad that their new fire truck is working well and they even had a call while we were there! Thanks to all the Marten River firefighters for their hospitality and friendship. Took a side trip to Temagami and climbed the tower (awesome!) and visited the train station (looking good!). Also visited Pru in the Temagami municipal office who was so helpful in getting the fire truck we donated to MRFD licensed in the right name! Thanks again, Pru! We will return again next summer! What a great place! I've never seen such beauty! Saw lots of bears (at the dump), but no moose. Maybe next time!

I meant to submit this recipe to the TLA for their cookbook, but missed the deadline. I feel that this milkshake recipe, however, should be enjoyed by as many that have the determination and courage to try it. Temiskaming Milk Shake a handful of courage a bucket full of moose milk an armload of stamina a dash of insanity a lot of skill Procedure 1.During calving season (moose's),quietly creep up to an unsuspecting moose. (be sure it is a cow moose or you will get poor results) 2.Place a bucket on level ground between the beast's hind legs.(not too close to its end) Keep an eye on the feet (moose's),as they can inflict severe wounds.Also wear a raincap in case nature calls,(moose's)- an incident here could jeopardize procedures. 3.With a delicate touch and a lot of tact, grab on to the unmentionable parts,(moose's).There are four of them located in a very sensitive area(moose's). Squeeze with a GENTLE downward motion. 4.Caution!-If moose begins to walk,hold on with one hand, carry the bucket with the other. Walk (or trot) maintaining moose's speed. Keep body in a crouch so as not to be detected if moose glances back. If moose begins to run it is wise to let go and try again later. 5.Once bucket is full,cap it with a piece of canvas or your raincap (if not used) as per step #2. 6.Run like hell, shaking the bucket in an up-down and side- to-side motion. Result- Temiskaming Kilk Shake. NOTE:- if moose pursues, leave the pail and climb a tall tree. If there is no tree,place pail on the ground and pretend will all your heart that you are a tree. For those who prefer cream, follow step # 1A. 1A. Sing sweetly to the moose,so that it will fall asleep and lay down (moose). Milk, while the animal is upside down (This can be done while holding the hind legs up with one hand and milking with the other.(A lot of strength required here). Cream will then be skimmed off first. (Moose prefer children's lullabies or short French poems sung to the tune of "Allouete"!

Hi everyone! I read this guest book a couple times a week but have never added anything to it but I thought I would this time and mention how much we enjoyed the Temagami Picnic and fireworks. What can I say, the fireworks were great. To us, the fireworks were the best yet that we have seen in the past. It was sure nice seeing people at the picnic that we have not seen for some time like Jack and Betty Stevens, Kenny Renuand, Donald Charette, and many other people. The all afternoon entertainment was alot fun. I just thought I would say Thanks to all the people who helped make the weekend great for all. Happy Canada Day. Mike Loney

I am so happy to have discovered this site today. It was a heart felt moment reading over the other comments and remembering many of the people. I miss Temagami and love being home when I get the chance. I think this is a great way of promoting the benefits of northern life and what Temagami has to offer. Also, I would like to take this opportunity to say Hello to everyone! Keep up the great work.

Hi Becky. Sorry, I do not have a boat like that but I remember riding in one that your dad made. Woody was using it in 1969. I have a picture of one that has a roof section. Lynn and I will be in Temagami in July. We'd love to see you.

Hi all.... I'm presently searching for a particular type of boat for restoration purposes and was hoping the readers of the Guestbook might be of some assistance. It is an open cedarstrip boat handcrafted by Frank and Howard Wood of Woodcraft Boat Works, Temagami, in the late 50's or early 60's. There were 5 or 6 of these boats and I'm hoping one of them is in good enough condition to restore. Please email me if you have any kind of lead. Thanks...

Best wishes with the construction of the new mill in the spring of 2002. It is probably the best thing that could happen to the Temagami community, as it carves out a unique market niche for itself by creating a viable product from under utilized tree species. I look forward to passing through your town again this summer and perhaps will endulge in another holiday-weekend houseboat excursion! All the best, Marc & Fani

Hello all. It's been a really long time since I left Temagami, around 10 years I think. Wow, I can't believe its been that long. The last time I was there was 2 years ago when I was practice teaching at good old T.P.S. That was a pretty bizarre experience. Hanging out in the teacher's lounge listening to Madame Berube (Pardise) tell her dirty jokes. I decided not to persue teaching, because I hate kids. I'm just kidding. Actually the kids I was teaching were great. I moved to Guelph. Worked for Bell Mobility for a while. Then I had a opportunity to work in the Financial Industry, so I jumped at it. It's a great profession. I'm still living in Guelph; my office is in Cambridge. I would love to hear from my fellow Temagamites. Please fee free to drop me a line. Cheers. Chris

Temagami is one of the greatest places in the world. That is why we must take immediate action to stop the potential logging of block 30 in the Temagami area. Ecotourism in the area could be permanently harmed by these plans. I beg every visitor of this guestbook to voice your opinion to the Ministry of Natural Resources in North Bay. For more information, check out these links: Thanks for your help.

Sorry I couldn't make it to the end of January Hockey Tournament Raymond G., school won! I visited the virtual tower tour and my fiance (MaryEllen) and I decided to visit there this spring when I go up to visit my Mom Carolyn. I sent an email to Michelle Seguin commending her on the enthusiasm she shows toward social interaction within the Temagami area and the much needed involvement by the locals. When I was a kid growing up around the Cobalt and Temagami areas, I took for granted a lot of the efforts that people like her made in my every day life. Living the philosophy that "there is power in numbers" seems to suit Michelle's personality quite nice and I feel that anyone who helps her will ultimately benefit, especially if you have young impressionable children. I know the warmth a small town can give, especially if you got a good stove, ehhhhh! Your Native Friend, TTHigo

Hi All, A few of us are celebrating the holidays at the Humphrey's. Would like to send our seasons greeting to those Temagami folks present and past from Al and Bernie Larochelle, Gregg and Carolan Forsberg and Chuck and Cindy. Hope things are well for all and wish the best for the coming year. Greggor is still playing hockey and is smooth as Perry Como. If you have a note Carolan and Gregg leave it with Chuck and he will pass it on them, the same for Al and Bernie. P.S. Timmins is not the end of the world but you can see from here. Pray for us!!!!

most people of Temagami either dont remember me, (or don't care to). But I heard that Bill Dwyer died recentley. I was coached by the big guy with Tommy Laronde, Eddie Shynkerinko Andy Carr, Andy Stevens, Jeff Davis,Piere Savoie, Ian Carswell as well as the first year of the Intermediate "C" team of Temagami. Bill always had the connections in North Bay, we would get games against the Sealtest oldtimers when nobody else could. I am sure that nobody understands the things Bill did for minor hockey and just the game, then his daughter Cathy. I remember her giving me absoulte chewing out when I was about 16 becuase Bill saw something that I didnt see. All the best to Cathy and her familey at christmas. BE THANKFULL FOR THE TIME YOU HAD NOT THE TIME YOU MISSED. ( boy I hope theres not to many spelling mistakes.) LEN HODGSON

A little belatedly, I want to thank all our friends in Temagami that made our second North Woods Reunion trip this summer a huge success. What a great area and community. Karl Livengood, Bob Williams and I brought back two more former Cleveland YMCA North Woods Campers, Brad Hale and Tom Baldwin who like us had not revisited Temagami since our camping days in the early 1950's. Brad and Tom were as excited as we were on our first return in 1999 that Temagami is still the same as we remembered. We feel deeply indebted to all of you who have helped to preserve it's beauty and splendor. We now have located a total of 10 of our fellow cabin mates and counselors but a few are still missing. If any of you happen to visit this guest book, please let me know where you are.

Well, I finally arrived safely home from my sister Tina and her new husband Kevin's wedding that took place at the tower on the second of September. Boy was it nice to be home, I have not been home for two years and there has been a few minor changes but overall the same. I sure missed it. I had to make sure to have a couple of poutines from Debbie Sequins fry wagon. I was home for 2 weeks and managed to get my three year old asking for them all the time. She simply asks for the stuff with the gravy and cheese. Well, it won't be long before we have snow out here in Smithers, there is already fresh snow on the mountains. It was hard to leave the 29 and 30 degree temperatures to come home to fleece pants and turning on the furnace. Dana, Sylvie and Nancy it was nice to see you again. Take care and hope to hear from you soon

My grandparents live in Temagami and have a cottage on lake Temagami and it is my favourite place on earth! I spent 8 great weeks around there this summer (including time at Wabikon!!) and it was just a whole big blast. Anyway I've been trying to get my grandparents (Jack and Edna Erwin) to come and visit us out in Calgary, because they haven't for a few years now, but my grandfather wont. I was wondering if anyone who reads this and knows who he is could start telling him he should really come visit his daughter and her family out west. It would really be appreciated. Temagami rocks!

I was back to Temagami in the summer and my brother Sam and I had a great trip up Lake Temagami with Muffy and her daughter Amanda and my cousin John Guppy. I haven't been on the lake for years, and it was just wonderful. It brought back a lot of great memories. We had a great visit with Muffy's Mom & Dad, Dorothy and Verdun Pacey, Peggy Guppy, Verna Carr, Norm & Marilyn Lacroix. It is just a great time to visit when you walk downtown in Temagami, because you see a pile of people that you haven't seen in years. We had a great time!

Well folks after much trial the guestbook is back up and running, Long story short we had a failure of the server that was hosting the guestbook. This server was provided for free and was not going to last forever. The problem is that when the server went down so did the files. I have recreated the files as best I can for now. The last copy of the guestbook that I stored is the current one you see now. I realize the postings are old but it is what it is. We will just have to post new messages :) Thanks to Andy at Onlink for the help and effort, and all others for your patience.. Any problems you encounter simply email me and I will get to them as soon as possible.... Spread the word that we are back Thanks Trevor

Hi everyone, I've started a Temagami photo album at this site. Maybe it will help some of the people who have had to move away from Temagami, the seasonal people bide their time until they get back and of course the ones who have a hard time getting home anymore at all. Just click on the URL and when it opens an album list will be visable in the upper left. Just choose which one you'd like to look at then click "View Album". note: I just had to put a couple of albums of my rock collection in there eh :-) I hope you enjoy, Jack

I had to pass through Temagami on my way to Haileybury from North Bay today. On the way I picked up an interesting gentleman whose car had broken down. He was doing some sort of thesis and making a presentation at a seminar at Temagami Shores to people from all over the country, inclu. the US. The seminar had something to do with resolving differences between Environmental values and practical economic values. It was great to see the intrest and excitement in this person on this issue. Also great to see needed business going to the village. I stopped at the Busy Bee and helped out a fella from Detroit area that wanted to see some old growth forest and some other info about the area. I sent him to Temagami Boat Livery and Northland Paradise (I hope Northland is still there)I know Rene and Lilian are :-)He said he'd been in town one day and was staying 2 more, loved the food at the Busy Bee, Loved the people, and was having a great time. I truly hope this is a sign of things to come. Oh yea, I also talked to Cliff & Murt, my goodness they're still in great shape, still staking claims and working in the bush. Also talked to Alex & Irene Guppy at the snack bar, they sounded great. Anne & Betty Durette are as much fun as ever. Terry's family seems all settled in to their new Orient Gardens, I'm gonna try to take my family up for some of his delicious Chinese food. All in all it was a "great" little visit. Thank You Temagami.

Does anyone still there remember Doc (Scotty) Mcgowan? He was on contract with the Provincial Goverment to take care of the miners and native Indians in the mid '40's. I'm his third child. His firstborn was Robert (Bob) and the second was Kathleen Ann (Marne). His was was Kathleen. We've recently refound the Marquette family, and Carl was kind enough to point me to your web page. Looks great! But not the Temagami I remember. Riding in a birchbark canoe, by moonlight with my Dad and two guides, is one of my fondest memories. It was so silent I couldn't figure out how we were moving. The beauty and peacefullness will stay with me always. Love from the south. Judy

I'm really enjoying this site now that I finally found it, thanks to Tracey Gauvreau... but I'm a little ticked off at the Humphrey boys for not including me (Tex) and Buford in their list of nicknames, not as though we didn't spend enough time around their place!!  Here are a few names I have remembered to add to the list:  Peddle Car, Squirrel, Doornail, Ape, Danny Mohee, Gully, Steve L. West, Coon, Crazy Ed, Albertine Moosewood, Signet, Biggie, Chico, Shitsy, Bucky (Phantom Shitter), Puddy, Square, Ziffel, Magoo, Ringo, Hangman, Beak, Box Car, Boomerang, Schwad, Cacut, Gas peddle, Hendrix.  ... And if I drop a couple more hits of Ginkoba I'm sure I'll think of a few more.

Anyone have pictures of the old boats that dropped passengers off on their islands in the 1950's , such as the Niade, Grey Owl etc.? please e-mail them to me at if you can. I'll be happy to send other Temagami pictures in return.... been there as a "family" since 1927, pictures of 4 generations so far... and my kids are now 14, 18 and 20, so it won't be long until 5th generation kicks in.

First spent time in Temagami during 1982, with Sheila "Peeler" Blake! Many fond memories of 'going up the lake'. Also spent time with Dorothy Zimmerman, in the pink house and at the cabins up on Rabbit Lake. (Lived in North Bay then.) Last I was in Temagami was for Sheila's wedding. Still in touch with her, usual at Christmas card time!

Oh my God what a blessing to find this page. I had no idea how much I missed Temagami until I saw all the familliar names and places. I was just kind of skimming the guest book - the White House burnt down? Wow! I had my first legal drink there. I spent every summer in Temagami from the ages of 7 to 19 and it really did become a part of my soul. My first job was at The Busy Bee (I was a really lousy waitress, but Chris and Wendy should know I got better and worked in a fancy dining room for about two years)I worked at Lakeland Airways for about five summers - if anyone has any news about the Garrahs I'd love to know how Darren and Judy are. Wow - heavy nostalgia .. Rene Laperrier and Cindy Salmond and what was that store called .. something something Store of Little Things?... Jack Anderson teaching me how to drive in Grandma's beat up old Sunbird .. Anyone who wants to swap memories with me or catch me up on everything I've been missing .. please, please email me.

Hello everyone! This guestbook is a really great idea. I love being in Tmeagami. I visited there in 1990, just passing through on my way out west. We stopped in for lunch and took in the beautiful view out across the water. Many times I passed through Temagami, on trips to Hornepayne, Thunder Bay, Ignace and Sioux Lookout. I have always loved everything about Temagami. In 1996 I camped at the Provincial Park there and canoed along the arm of the lake. It surprising how large the lake is. There were many houseboats along the way. I told myself that I would rent one someday and explore the rest of the lake. I am presently a student at Sir Sanford Fleming College in Lindsay. I am in a program called Ecosystem Management. I like Temagami so much that I have am doing an extensive report on Temagami. The report includes such things as abiotic, biotic and cultural factors that affect the twon and the area around it, including the Pine forests. There are many problems facing the biological species in the area. I felt that this was an excellent oppurtunity to learn more about the area. In the future I hope to visit Temagami many more times and maybe someday actually live there. Although that is just a dream at this point. If anyone has any interesting stories or facts about Temagami, I would love to hear from them. E-mail me or write to me at my permanent address: Al Marchant RR#5 Orillia, ON Canada L3V 6H5 Thank you.

Maybe someone can help me? My boyfriend and I took our first trip to Temagami last summer and, naturally, fell in love with everything about it. We decided to hike for a day on the Fergusson trail- starting at Camp Wanapitei. After about 3 seconds on the bumpy, puddle ridden Red Squirrel road we realized our poor little Nissan would never make the trip again. This year we want to take a week and hike the whole trail, only trouble is, we have no way of getting from town to Camp Wanapitei. I know we could fly in but it's costly for us right now and we weren't sure about leaving the car there , either. Does anyone know of a ride-board or an alternate way of getting us down that road? We could hike down the road, but again, where would we stash the car? Any helpful hints would be appreciated so much- we REALLY want to get to that Camp and the trail! Thanks very much - Cynthia

My family is planning another webpage in the near future, getting a start on it hopefully at Easter. I am particularly interested in pictures of an historical nature about Temagami, the Lake, the Town, the Boats, O.N.R. , etc. If anyone wishes to assist in the way of pictures,post-cards,info, etc., please contact me. On a recent trip to Temagami, the Librarian was most helpful and I wish to thank her publicly. If you have a scanner, you will be able to e-mail pictures; if not, I'm sure where there's a will, there's a way.Please feel free to contact me , and I will respond shortly.

It is a somewhat cold night in Oak Ridges, just south of Aurora. I needed something to warm me, so I have turned to visiting web sites from my beloved Temagami. What a wonderful idea this guestbook is. I first visited Temagami in 1976. I feel in love at first sight. I worked at Camp Wabikon in 1980, counselling and teaching drama and music. I have worked at Canadian Adventure Camp for the past three summers. Temagami is a place that calls your name if you don't return every so often throughout your life. I hear so many people say: "I'm going to British Columbia, it's so beautiful there". I always wonder if they've seen Temagami. If I close my eyes now, I can feel the sun, the cool water on my hand at the bottom of my paddle, and smell the pines.

Hi! Just wanted to say what a great time we had up there on our March break. The boys had a great time, and we really didn't want to leave. Also thanks to Debbie Charyna, Rhonda Etmanski and Robyn Koisten for putting on a great snowshoe baseball tourney, it was a lovely day and we had a blast. It was great having everything down on the waterfront in front of the Lady Evelyn, also thanks for the owners and staff at Lady Evelyn for their great hospitality, I look forward playing next year. It was great to see some old friends I haven't seen in awhile (Cindy Charette-Sirotkin, Susie Adair, Donny Broughton, O.J. Guppy, Eddie and Barry Roy). The weather was great, had a great time with my sister Deb, and cousins Doug and Carrie, thanks guys for the great time, I look forward to going back soon. I HOPE!

I hear Terry Woo opened a new Chinese restaurant next to the old drug store. Might help to fill the void of the missing Whitehouse. He makes great Chinese food and it is nice to have he and Helen back in Temagami!

I actually read through all of the messages and I had a lot of laughs and was pleased to locate some long lost friends. I miss Temagami. Loved growing up there and having such a big family of Guppy's to vacation with at "Guppyville." Who is Mel Guppy? I was also really excited to read news from the Roosevelt sisters of Detroit. Spent lots of time with them on lake Temagami in my younger years. Temagami needs a homecoming. Take care all.

Once more with feeling :-) I want to ask your opinion on something and hope you'll post responses. Do you think it would be feasable to ask the people who run this guest book to expand their horizons and develope a web page or newsgroup so binaries / pictures could be uploaded. I have hundreds of pictures of Temagami and I'm sure others do to. If a web site or newsgroup were establishised and the pictures scrolled off or were updated, maybe monthly, I think it would be a great asset in promoting Temagami. Any comments?

Hello friends, Gee, the previous posting from Melanie requesting information about Temagami is a great oportunity to talk up Temagami and it might even pay off :-) I sent her some information and a couple of pictures with an offer of more if she wants them. Maybe if everyone either posted some relative, helpful, info here, or sent it to her it would help her "and" Temagami.Don't like to pass up an oppertunity eh, haha.

Hi there! I am one of a number of business students researching the wonderful area of Tamagami for a marketing project. We are basing our market research on a case we have read on the Bear Island Trading Post (does anyone know if this still exists?) If anyone has any information on Bear Island or the trading post (or maybe post office) we would greatly appreciate it. It is a very beautiful area, and until now, none of us knew of all the vacation possibilities available to us! Thanks!!!

Sorry to hear about the "White Inn". My brother and I were just up in October and had lunch there. The last time he had been to Temagami was in 1978 when we both stayed there for a few nights.

When the guestbook went down, my entries were lost. I haven't had the time (or heart) to visit 'til now. You see, I was so inspired by Darryl Lalonde's story of the Aubrey Cosens, that I dug out my old postcards, thinking to surprise you all with 3 or 4 old photos, only to misplace them as we are preparing to move! Imagine saving them for over 40 years only to lose them now. We even purchased a scanner just for the purpose. I do enjoy the ones that someone else has made available at this site, now. WHEN I find mine, I do promise to share them with you! I am STILL looking for folks who loved not only Temagami, but Camp Wabi-Kon also!! Where are you?????? I was a camper for 4 years, and a counselor for 2, in the 1950's. And my husband and I have visited three times during the 80's and 90's! He loves "our Lake" also, and hopes to return in the not too distant future. For all of you on AOL, how about another try at chatting about Temagami in a chatroom? Some of you were doing it for awhile. Just put each other on a Buddy List, and when 2 or more are online, go to chatroom "Beautiful Temagami" I'll send you the names and addresses I have! Love to all from the middle of Illinois. Nancy B

The comments of Mel McDonald brought back a memory of a hockey game years ago in Latchford. A bunch of us went up to Latchford to play a game against the locals. One of the Thurlow's played goal..forget his name.There were 3 Thurlows on our team, Jud, being one of them; A once upon a time very good hockey player,Tom Petrant was on our team as well.I forget who else was there.Anyway, after about 10 min. of play and the score tied 1-1, our goaltender was down when a shot came from the corner and hit him in the forehead. He began to bleed, and was not able to continue. I believe we tried a young McCourt in net next, with not much success. Somehow the game ended in a tie, probably by accident as well.

I first experienced Temagami at 12 years old. I worked many summers for the Paceys and moved to Temagami when I was 20. Worked in Temagami for 10 more years. I have lived in Red Deer, Alberta for the last 22 years. Working in the oil patch, I have met countless characters, but few can compare to fellows like Ernie Miller, Gordon Guppy, Shlaa Leduc or Jud Thurlow. I think Jack Humphrey recently asked who would have any stories to tell about old Ernie Miller. Ernie's closest friends were Tex Morrison, Jud Thurlow and Wayne McGuire. I remember one night at the White House, when we all had a few too many soda pops and I asked Ernie if Ontario Northland sent him to Moosonee on holidays, or could he really guide and call geese for the hunters? He raised his head from the table ana looked at me like I was the dumbest jerk he had ever had to acknowledge, and said "Mac, who do you think calls them back in the spring you stupid X?###!! I have wonderful memories of the years I spent with people of Temagami, and the summer visitors. Hi Jack & Chuck Humphrey! I enjoy reading your messages!

He had written some of his storys about his times up there. He had met a man named Joe Friday that lived there. In his papers he had written about Bear Island and even Fridays point.

Every year we would go up to the tower for a hike we had many years of fun and enjoyment i miss you all. I would like to say hi to Debbie and Nancy Gareh KIM CARR ROGER BRASSARD. I also like to say a special hi to my sister Bev McDougal's good friend Ed Schroeder who use to give us boat rides in his big wooden boat and sound his horn for us when he came to pick us up thank you ED. My sister married a wonderful man from Temmagami and have a wonderful family they own a cottage on Angus Lake. I have been up there to see them but not in awhile.

Hi to all!! I spent another wonderful month in Temagami during my Christmas Holidays and hope to be back to see everyone soon. Temagami is a dream place, so different from the big city I spend most of my time in here. My friends often ask me why I want to go work so far away instead of staying around home, when they see the pictures, they understand and sometimes, they are even jealous!!!

This sure is a sad day for all residents on island #27. Mr. Walton was a great man and we all thought the world of him. He will be greatly missed as will Mr. Terry & Dr. Webster who also have passed away. We lost 3 wonderful people from a generation that gave us the life we now know of Temagami. Life goes on but, Temagami will never be the same on island #27 for many of us. Sam, John, Grant & also Bill (my grandfather) are all together now once again. I can picture then having a great time together. We miss them all very much. Town will not be the same either with the Whitehouse gone. What is happening to our beloved little town of Temagami? I can't stand to hear any more bad news. I pray that the families are all doing okay after the fire. Town will look different forever now. My heart is always with Temagami and the fond memerories that I will carry with me forever.

Hi Brother, Long time no see :-) If the Bill MacArther you're wondering about is the one who owned Amich Lodge and sold the Esso products, then I think I can help you. When I was 15 years old he was about 65 years old. This would make him 105 :-) Now... I can't be sure where he is but I doubt he's moving around much, or at least very fast, and we should be able to catch up with him. Would you like me to look further. You know how I like to give you all the help I can. Brother Jack

Yes it is a tragedy to see the Hotel gone, even worse to see those families left with very few personal items. Just to let you all know, the Lions Club and Bank of Nova Scotia have set up a Trust Fund for monetary donations and are collecting articles of clothing, houseware, etc. for the Leach, Harwood, and Barker families. Anyone wishing to donate may do so at the Municipal Office, Temagami Marine, Busy Bee, or at the Bank of Nova Scotia.

Yes it sure was a sad day for Temagami. My mom woke me up and said the Whitehouse was on fire and this was 7:45 am. As I drove up the hill near the medical center on Steven's Rd, all I saw was a huge fire ball in front of me. This memory will be with me always. By 11:30 as I watched with Pierre was gone. All that remains is a big empty space and many memories lost for all especially the Leach family who all escaped safely. That's all!! Tracy Gauvreau

New Years Greetings from Orlando Florida. It's both wonderful and sad to see Temagami on the web. Wonderful in the warm memories it brings to mind... and sad that it has been too many miles and too many years since I have made the journey home to Bell Island #25. Wishing all a great 1999 and hoping this will be the year that I bring myself and my new generation Webster's to this wonderful, magical part of the world.

I just heard the tragic news...THE WHITE HOUSE IS GONE...up in flames, say it isn't so. Soon there will be nothing left. If those walls could talk. One quick little story. In the spring of about 1979, after a year away at school in the big city, I sat down at the bar with the Guppy Girls, Shiela Blake and Peter Buck. We ordered draft, the waitress scoffed and said "the only draft in here comes under the G.D. door."

We were home last summer and spent a good amount of time reminiscing about the things we did as kids. It surprises me how many of us actually lived to tell the tale . . . and tell them we did. We got together at Nancy Guppy's house during the summer for a bit of a reunion and got going on with my brother Sam, sister Tina, Nancy and John Guppy. It amazes me how much my cousin John (OJ) remembers. And it is so cool to sit with others who experienced the same events. Everyone remembers different things and a lot of gaps get filled in . . . some of them with BS but thats okay because the tale is the thing. One of my brother's stories relate to telling of a bunch of them getting together on halloween to throw molatov cocktails (gas in a bottle). I guess Dill Pickle's (Ricky Millar) rag wasn't in tight enough and his gas wound up running down his sleeve (lit of course). I can see him racing away like a giant firefly. We used to spend a lot of our summer nights at Finlayson Park and I can still remember heading into town with about twelve other kids in Lou Rosevelt's 9 1/2 horse outboard. We probably had about 1 or 2 inches of freeboard and were riding with no lights in fog. Sure enough, out of the fog comes Louie's brother Bob in his 35 horse cruiser at full throttle straight toward us. We actually touched gunwales but it happened so quickly that no one had time to react. Nothing was said and we carried on into town. No one even commented on how close we came to being fish bait. I have 2 kids of my own now and I think if they did half the things we did I would be hard pressed to keep my heart in my chest. My mom and dad are to be commended. Anyone else got any ditties to share. I've got some about working at Milnes Lumber yard but that another tale.

Hi, my name is Wayne Yarrow, and I understand that the M.N.R. is considering a reduced catch limit for lake trout due to the fact that they consider the lake to be over fished and that the lake trout numbers have declined in recent years. My reflection to this matter would be totally the opposite. I have been coming to Lake Temagami for over 30 years and have found the lake trout fishing to have been better in the last ten years then ever before. I practise catch and release and visit Lake Temagami three seperate times a year. In any given week while fishing for lake trout (still steal lining) I may only witness three boats actually fishing for lake trout. Any visual boat sightings by the M.N.R. airplanes is not a true indication that these boats are actually fishing for lake trout. I will soon be retiring and plan on owning my own place in Lake Temagami. I would like to support the M.N.R. in there walleye restocking program. Temagami Lake is the most magnificant piece of water in the world. Love those loons Wayne Yarrow.

Hey everyone from my generation. Back in is going well just hard to figure out why I ever left. Oh yeah, to ski in those beautiful Canadian Rockies. I have been hanging out with Lynne Cyr (Van Elswyk) and Debbie Charyna and we were reminissing our Temagami Public School years; you know the days when we had Mr. Prefasi every year (grade 4, 5, 6, 7, and 8 for some). Oh those were the days. Are any of our classmates out there. Let us know...we are just wondering what is going on. Names fresh in our mind that we do not know where these people are: Sean Huntington, Brian McCarthy, Nancy Cloutier, Susie Fleming, Laura Bartle, Sean Nihill, Steve Waddell, Kim Chapman, Stacie Carr, Britt Higo, Vicki Renaud, Diane Legault, Brandi Atkinson, and Greg Dryden (you were not in our grade 8 but where are you?). If anyone know the whereabouts let us know through my email. Wouldn't it be cool to hook up again. I think so!! As Kevin Watson is good to be back to this beautiful place...not quite in those words but that is what he meant. Hope to hear from some of you. Later, Tracy Gauvreau

I have been posting on this board for a long while and still enjoy checking in and reading all the new posts. I grew up in the North(New Liskeard) and my dad was a lawyer in Temagami for quite some time. I spend my summers at Camp Wabun on Garden Island.(just north of Bear Island) This past summer was my first summer as a member of the staff. What an incredible experience. The winter months now set in and I realize that the summer really isn't that far away. The times that I can sit out on a rocky campsight, enjoy the smells, the stars and the silence. Temagami...what an outstandingly wonderful place to be!!!!! 8 months and counting.

we're considering a trip to Ontario during the second half of June 1999 and would be interested in a short (3 or 4 days) canoe outing in the vicinity of Lake Temagami. We would like to hear from canoe outfitters and guides who might be interested. We would brin gout own sleeping gear, and could bring tents. We would rely on the outfitter for cooking.

After some 25 years of leaving Temagami I still hold a special place in my heart for that beautiful lake.The first day we hooked on to the net the word Temagami was my first search.What an incredible feeling it was to find a site that brought back so many memories. Finding this guestbook site and reading names of people I went to school with was incredible.Over the last 20 or so years I often wondered what ever happened to the people I went to Temagami Public with. If any of you know of them or myself it would be great to hear from you. Chris Ebsworth (I lived with my brothers Nick & Anthony and sister Angela out at the mine on Temagami Island. Names that come to mind are David Guppy/Pam Goddard/Mark & Ranny Gauvreau/Andy Etmanski/Nancy McCart or any of the others from that class of grade 8 so many years ago.

My father(Chris) and I went icefishing last year(1997) in February, and i speak for the both of us when i say it was just plain amazing. We will be back next year and as much after that as we possibly can. We had a great time, the people were great and the view was spectacular. I wish we could come up there more often, but it is hard since we live all the way down in Raleigh North Carolina. One last thing if anyone knows Macoose(The Wolf) please give him a dog biscut for us. Thanks from Raleigh!

We spend a lot of time reading the guestbook entries and I guess it's about time I signed in and gave an update on where we are and what we are doing. It sure is nice to hear from those we grew up with (it's like going home again). Conrad and I have been in North Bay for about 8 years now and he retires from the Ontario Government this month and is busy setting up his own accounting practice. I have been working for the MNR fire office since moving here which explains why we never seem to get to Temagami during the summer. We do get to visit our parents (Audrey Wood, Lorne and Evelyn Hamilton) often in the off season. Hi Lynn and Debbie.... good to see you found the site.

Hi Lynn. Thanks for calling to let me know about this site. I immediately sat down and went through every message. It brought back so many memories. I hope I get some replies to my message soon. Hi Becky. I saw your mom again this summer and she filled me in. I see Joe is looking for people who might know him or his mom and dad. Well, Joe, I've got a few stories to share with you. I've been camping in the park every summer for about 40 years. My family enjoyed the lake, especially my dad who loved to fish. I soon grew tired of fishing and found more fun with the kids in town. I met the Woods' family first. Woody came around to the park docks to swim as did many others from town and we became good frieds. I've been back to the park with my own family and they enjoy it just as much as I do.

Well, since everyone has been writing about their past experiences in Temagami, I thought I would take my turn. I was just messing around on my computer and I came across the Temagami site. Great idea Trevor!!!! I have just returned to Temagami about one month aga after spending close to seven years in the heart of the Canadian Rockies...Lake Louise, Alberta. It was tough to leave such a gorgeous area but Temagami is as beautiful. It is unfortunate it has taken me my whole life to realize the beauty of this area. I just returned to school to complete my BA in hopes of becoming a teacher. I am one of those Temagamites that took this place for granted...growing up in such a "hole" eh Kevin. Just kidding everyone...apparently this joke has been going on quite a while. It is true though, so many young and older people do not appreciate what have or had here until you leave it behind and come back to it. Anyhow, it has been good to see the old faces around town and read the guest book to see what everyone else has been doing. I have so much to say but I will save it for other visits to the site. U me will you!!!! and anyone else who knows me. Take care.... Tracy Gauvreau

He did this compliments of the Blue Jays owners and managers. He was treated like "Royalty" supper, meet the owners, good game seats, etc., etc. I don't know for sure but I think it had something to do with the fact that he can paint a Blue Jay better than anyone else in Ontario???

Looking out on the lake just takes my breath away espically on a rainy day when you can see all the dark clouds along the shore line.. I think that is so neat.

I just got back home yesterday after spending 10 wonderful days in Temagami. As a kid, I remember running down to the dock to jump in the boat to catch the waves whenever the Aubrey Cousins went by - nice to hear the story about its namesake. Mom even let us run down in the middle of breakfast - wow! My Mom also swears I climbed the tower as a kid (5 years old), but I don't remember. Now I've just finished climbing the tower with my own kids, ages 3 & 5, and what a site to see! Thanks for restoring the tower as I couldn't bear the horizon without it. The loons, the train whistle and the tower are all intregal parts of the lake. Bell Island, #25 - til next summer then!

I read with interest Daryl Lalonde's account of the boat, the Aubrey Cosens. Too add to his story, this is what happen to the Aubrey. One fall when the Aubrey was being pulled out of the water, its keel was broken from the weight of the water left inside it. It sat for many years in dry dock beside the Ontario Northland Boat Lines, next to Lakeland Airways. My father, Lou Riopel and my uncle, Alf Guppy bought the boat and moved it to our Tourist Camp in Marten River, Land O' Lakes Lodge. The plan was to put is hull in the ground and make a restaurant out of it. We never did make a restaurant out of it, as one night it caught fire and burnt to the ground. A sad ending for a great boat.

Just found out about this page on Temagami - had to write and say hello. Spent summer at Northwoods Y camp during the summer of 1945 - had great fun visiting White Bear holding hands with the girl staff. Grey Owl was the boat that brought supplies to the camp and took us to the square dances at Bear Island. Joe Friday was our guide - his grave is on Bear Island (placed their by the YMCA Indian Guides) I also brought canoe groups up to Gull Lake - was there the year the fire tower blew down in a tornado. What ever happened to North woods camp? Will have to get back again - maybe next year

A little history behind the Aubrey Cosens, a historical vessel from Lake Temagami's past. Sgt. Aubrey Cosens Mooshof, Germany February 25th-26th, 1945 The Queen's Own Rifles of Canada Aubrey Cosens was born in Latchford, Ontario, on the 21st of May 1921, the son of a First World War veteran. Shortly after his birth his family moved to Porquis Junction, near Iroquois Falls, Ontario and he was educated in the Porquis Junction School. He left school in 1938 to work with his father on the railway as a second hand. He left Porquis Junction in 1939 to join the Royal Canadian Air Force but his application was rejected. Finally, in 1940, he went to Hamilton, Ontario and was accepted by the Argyll and Sutherland Highlanders of Canada (Hamilton) Regiment. He served with them in Canada, Jamaica and England; then transferred to the Queen's Own Rifles of Canada in the summer of 1944 and was soon promoted from corporal to sergeant. Sergeant Cosens is buried in Groesbeek Canadian War Cemetery, Nijmegan, The Netherlands. His Victoria Cross is displayed at the Canadian Rifles Glenbow Museum in Calgary, Alberta. Citation 'In Holland on the night of 25th-26th February 1945, the 1st Battalion, The Queen's Own Rifles of Canada launched an attack on the hamlet of Mooshof, to capture ground which was considered essential for the development of future operations. Sergeant Cosens' platoon, with two tanks in support, attacked enemy strong points in three farm buildings, but were twice beaten back by fanatical enemy resistance and then fiercely counter-attacked, during which time the platoon suffered heavy casualties and the platoon commander was killed. Sergeant Cosens at once assumed command of the only other four survivors of his platoon, whom he placed in a position to give him covering fire, while he himself ran across open ground under heavy mortar and shell fire to the one remaining tank, where, regardless of the danger, he took up an exposed place in front of the turret and directed his fire. After a further enemy counter-attack had been repulsed, Sergeant Cosens ordered the tank to attack the farm buildings, while the four survivors of his platoon followed in close support. After the tank had rammed the first building he entered it alone, killing several of the defenders and taking the rest prisoner. Single-handed he then entered the second and third buildings, and personally killed or captured all the occupants, although under intense machine-gun and small arms fire. Just after the successful reduction of these important enemy strong points, Sergeant Cosens was shot through the head by an enemy sniper and died almost instantly. The outstanding gallantry, initiative and determined leadership of this brave N.C.O., who himself killed at least twenty of the enemy and took an equal number of prisoners, resulted in the capture of a position which was vital to the success of the future operations of the Brigade.'

Did anyone else notice a glitch in the guestbook lately, or was it just me?I fired off a note to good guy Trevor Adair again, but after searching through many titles (many,many titles) under Temagami found the original one that I have been using. Someone, somehow, (I think) messed with the page and ,in so doing, did something to the guestbook. Hopefully, everyone doesn't have to go through what I did. Jack, thanks for the note.I tried to reply, but my e-mail was unable to arrive at your address.

Hi everyone! Was back in Temagami in July for a few days and had a chance to wander around the Public School. I wandered around in the old part and even looked into the room where I got the strap in grade 3. Anyone remember the Principals - Patty Connell or Clark Boughner? The town seemed fairly busy while we were there and it was great to see! The station restoration is really going well - some of the old pictures were really neat to see (Grandpa Guppy on the Belle and the Aubrey Cousins). Had a great visit with Suzanne and Ron Prefasi, Grant & Cheryl Pacey, Barry & Sandy Elliott, Muffy, and all my 'Guppy' relatives. The visit brought back fond memories of great summers on the lake. What a great place to grow up!

Iguess some of the Anishnabe stories about the lake must be true! Some nights, I can "feel" the Lake Calling me back. I have conducted archaeological work up there in the past (1991 - 1993) and the images both past and present that I saw have stayed with me like no other images. And I have traveled to MANY places. My current work schedule is up in the air..but if I can make the time this year, I'm coming back to the place that has been called the "most beautiful place on the face of the earth". The place is in my blood..I can't shake the still vivid memories. I want to retire and die there! Respectfully, James B. Bandow BA.

I see my sister has put some comments in on our years in Temagami so thought I would add my two cents worth,too. As she said we spent many,many summers on Island#342 and still manage to get up that way every summer. Anyone that remembers me, drop me a line - would love to hear from you. I live in Florida now but sure miss the summers up the lake and the fishing and the canoe trips. It's a great place and I'm so happy to see this guest book - have seen a few names that I recognize.

Have enjoyed reading this web page. I first visited Temagami in 1935. Long time ago, right?? I was just a baby then so I don't remember, but because my father bought an island up the lake near Bear Island and built a great cottage on it, my sister ( Nancy) and I spent every summer of our young lives up there. Hi to everyone that would know the name SHANNON, and Nancy and I will be passing through Temagami in August on our way up to Haileybury to visit our great friends Norma and Frank McDougall, and Murray Wright. Anyone that remembers me, drop me a line, would love to hear from you. -- Pat.

Hi - Geat Site - First came to Temagami in 1952 ( 4 yrs old). Stayed at Bambi Lodge every summer until it was sold to the mine in the late 70's. Then went to Northland Paradise during the 80's and most recently to Temagami Shores. Will be at Temagami Shores next week (July 18-27) with two of my three children. Just can't stay away. Can't wait to see the restoration of the old train station and the tower. Soooooo,,,, many good memories of summers in Temagami. Thanks for the site and all the updated info.

Temagami is wonderful!...I'm going up to the cottage in a few weeks. My grandmother (E.J. Whitaker) lived there for years. She will finally get up there after the illnesses she has had to overcome in the past few years. She is so excited, and so am I! We have lost contact with the Schumackers and we were very concerned about Hap because we heard he was diagnosed with cancer. If anyone has any news we would appreciate it very much.

My sister pointed out this guestbook earlier in the year and I have been coming back on a regular basis to see who has checked in. I guess its my turn. I can't believe what a hoot it is to see messages frompeople I haven't heard from in over twenty years. I've been out in Alberta for that long now and have two kids (12 and 10). I wonder if anyone knows how to contact Doug Goddard? I'm coming home to visit my folks in Tilden Lake around the middle of July and am looking forward to hooking up with whoever happens to be around.
