I was disappointed.

My visit on Aug 24, to the Welland Library to ferret out the file of the Tribune’s coverage of the Niagara College sod turning, in 1967, turned out to be anti-climactic.

My memory of that Tribune coverage, was of a big spread, across most of a page, with at least two pictures. After all, Niagara College was a certified, “big deal”. It was a real coup for Welland. For, just a couple years before, St Catharines, the big city down the canal, had become home to a university, and now, little Welland was building a college. I remember going out to the college site that day to take pictures of the ceremony for  the Tribune, it was a hot, dusty spot, bustling with construction work.
