Wishing to say ‘hello’ to my old friends in Glenboro and District. I just finished reading  Glenboro’s  web-site, enjoyed it very much… A lot of familiar names are seen, still contributing as involved citizens, all these years. Wonderful!

In October 1976, the Glenboro Veterinary Clinic was officially opened, with Veterinary Director Dr Jack McPhedran cutting the ribbon.

That was  34 years ago this month (October, 2010), almost to the day…. golly, a life time ago… Don Foster and I were both there, with a lot of other  interested folks, sharing in that happy event. I recall that it was a bright, sunny day, the grass still very green.

I can still remember doing bovine Caesarians in the back area of the new clinic, with my cow-patients secured firmly within  the stanchion.  It was a wonderful new facility, a delight to work in.

Good to see that Sara and her supporters are doing so well. All the best, to Glenboro and District.
