Dear Jeff:

Some family of mine recently visited the Stan Reynolds: "Reynolds Alberta Museum" in Wetaskiwin. Mr. Reynolds died at age 88 in February this year & with him a piece of Alberta's transportation history died. At least we still have the memories b/c Mr. Reynolds donated countless industrial machines, aircraft, vehicles, as well as farming equipment to that museum so that Albertans could get an idea of how we used to get transported & where we were going as a province IV our future transport needs.

The museum used to be private, but in my birth year of MCMLXXIV (1974) Mr. Reynolds approached your government under then Premier E. Peter Lougheed & a gorgeous, internationally recognized transport museum was built. Mr. Reynolds knew that it was important to preserve the past so that social studies & history students (& their family's) can have a good idea of just how exciting we as a province are IV fascinating vehicles & vehicle types. These students might then become the vehicle builders, technicians, & engineers of the future!

I Encourage All II Go,
