I was a Richmond Review carrier for four years in the early 1980s. My route was where I grew up in South Arm by No. 4 Road and Steveston Highway. I remember delivering the Wed/Fri paper to about 40 homes and collecting 75 cents per month for the subscription.
I was featured in the “Keg Athlete of the Week” series that was in the sports section every Wednesday, and received a coupon to use at the Keg, where I later worked.
My father’s funeral was featured when he passed away in mid-April 2000 because many Richmond soccer people showed up to pay their respects for his volunteer coaching.
Don Fennell wrote a piece about his service and board work with the Richmond Soccer Association.
Don also wrote about my friends and my soccer team, the Richmond All-Blacks, that still plays in the RASA league.
My favourite article was about the predecessor to the All-Blacks, Certigard Impact, winning the Premier division cup in April/May of 1995.
It was the first time in 35 years that this had been done by a lower division team — the article title was something like “First time in 35 years Lower Division team wins the Richmond Cup.”
