Bella Bella: 70s students sought

Dear editor,

This is a call for help to people in Bella Bella.  I am not sure how to send a letter to the editor of a local paper that is read in that community, but I’m hoping this might work.

In the very early seventies, in Burnaby B.C. I attended MacPherson Park Junior Secondary School.  I met a very small group of students, during my grade eight year, who were from Bella Bella.

I was curious then, and full of questions about where they were from, what it was like.  I have thought of these kids often over the years, wondering what happened to them.  I remember names of two, Norman Stevens (or Stephens, I don’t know) and his cousin (I think) Emerald Stevens.  I would really like to hear from either of these two, or from anyone who attended MacPherson Park School in or around 1970, who came from Bella Bella.  I have included my email address.

Thank you for any help you can give me in my quest, I appreciate it.
