Hello Bill Hurley. I just got back from a basketball game at laval where you were one of the referees. You did a great job. My Red Island memory goes back over 50 years when you and your brother Jack came to Red Island for a few weeks of the summer. I never forgot your Ted Williams bat that you brought to the meadow to play ball. Real bats were not a common item for us at that time. It really felt great . I thought the hitting part was rather big compared to a picket off the fence. It was joy to hit the ball so far.

50 years ago my family moved to Hr. Buffett. I still remember going back to Red Island in the summer of 61 and spending a week with my uncle (Tom Ryan). I was 5 at the time.
