#TBT A letter received by traditional mail: HPSC Archives
Due to a very infrequent serious cleaning, I have come across some pins that may be of interest to your club. My Dad’s (Tom Hatanaka, I believe he was… #007): 1. HPYSC pin – when HPSC was part of the HPYMCA; 2. 25th Anniversary pin. As a historical note, I believe I was the first and only member, who became a member at the age of 18, the only year Ontario’s drinking age was 18. This was passed by the board since my Dad, an original member, wanted to retire but wanted to be in one HPSC Ski School photo with me. Given that I had my Level 1, I had to pass the instructor Training to become a member of of Ski School, which I did. So my Dad taught one more year so we could go to Tremblant together in December. FYI, I subsequently got my PSIA Level 2 and taught in the kids program at Holimont Ski Club, Ellicotville, NY, so my kids could ski. Regards, Diane Ferguson.
