This week’s Blast from the Past features the last of a series we received from Bashaw Star reader Earl Berry. It’s a Bashaw School photo believed to be from the 1940s. We don’t have all the names in this photo but as far as we can tell these are the people: Principal Peter Raffa, standing, and back row (l-r) is John Raper, Don Whitney, Angus Braseth and Ernie Mueller. Front row (l-r) is Clark (last name unknown), Dorothy Borup and (unknown). We hope to get more fun, historical photos of the community so if you hope to showcase your old images please contact Bashaw Star; we’d love to hear from you. Photo submitted
