    Comments: Great web page! My mother, Beatrice (nee Kenney) Nairn taught school at Richmond Hill and boarded with the Charlie Diehl family. My sister was named after Rilda Diehl. Beatrice met Ivan Nairn at a school dance at Glencoe School and they were married in 1936 and farmed between Cypress River and Glenboro. Beatrice was related to the Christies. I remember visits to “Aunt Maggie” Christie’s in Cypress River as well as haircuts at Kleebaum’s Barber Shop and Billiards. Farm machine parts were purchased at Helgason and Arason if memory serves me correct. Remember dances at Cypress with the Gardiner’s Orchestra playing!

    Hi – We  enjoyed so much our Coasters visit to Cypress River – especially the events sponsored including us in your celebrations. By the way, your web site is very nicely done. I had heard that you were planning to produce a video of the events of your anniversary and the car tour on the way from Winnipeg. Please let me know as I am interested in ordering these. Thanks again!

    Comments: Alf and Violet Palmer were my grandparents. Grandpa built the old Shell station on Highway 2 which is no longer there but replaced by a beautiful roadside park. I have fond memories of spending alot of summers in Cypress. I couldn’t wait for school to end to go and see everyone. Grandpa was the manager for the baseball team and many evenings were spent down at the ball park with him. I remember everytime someone went and got a foul ball, grandpa always made sure they got a quarter for it. Grandma did the Cypress River Newsletter and week after week she would spend hours in her basement putting it together, using the old handwind copier and then they next day running them all to the post office to be mailed! Who knew that so much happened in such a little town to have a newsletter every week!? Hope to come for the Homecoming!

We stopped at the local coffee shop and to my surprise it seemed as everyone in the shop were a “Young or related to Young’s. The Young’s orginal came from Blyth, Ontario, that is wher I was raised and now only 10 minutes away from Blyth. We visited the cemetry. We visited with Alan and Donna Lee, and David (Rocky). If you see these people mention to them that I was on this site. If you are Young or related just e-mail me. I’ve enjoyed surfing your site. Have a great time this summer with all your events.
    Loved your community, similar to Blyth, Ontario. We are at Seaforth, Ontario

    Comments: Thanks for putting that in for me. It was a terrific weekend and the people of Cypress should be proud of themselves to put on such a huge event. The weather was perfect -Friday was a bit on the cool side but Saturday was gorgeous. There were so many people that I talked to and renewed friendships with but there were so many others that I wish I could have seen – but just run out of time. I know that Diane & Ray also had a wonderful time and we are still talking about it. Just about everyday, Ray will call and say “Did you see ???”. This weekend will be long remembered by everyone. Please pass along our thanks to all the volunteers and committees that made it so special. Enjoy the rest of your summer !!

    Comments: Many, many congrats to the planning committee for such a fabulous celebration. You all worked so hard and pulled off a great party that would have done any community, anywhere extremely proud. Cypress River, we had a fabulous time over the weekend – what can I say? Where do I start? The best part was seeing so many people we hadn’t seen for so long and you were all so friendly and made us feel so good and happy. Thank you all a million times for making us feel so welcome. To each person we spoke with, I thank you from the bottom of my heart for your friendliness and evident pleasure in seeing us again, there were too many of you to name everyone individually, but I hope you know who you are, we were happy to reconnect with each one of you and if you are ever up our way, please give us a call and drop in for a meal or coffee or whatever. To those of you whom we knew before but didn’t get a chance to see, I’m sorry we missed you but the invitation to reconnect is extended to you as well. I have to say that all the young people from Miriam and Justine’s classes (grads of ’07 & ’09), you have all grown into, not only incredibly good looking young people, but also very, very nice, pleasant, polite & personable young men & women – go out there and make your marks on the world. When I met and spoke to the young people of Cypress River I was truly struck by their maturity and good attitudes, it made me feel hopeful for the future. The parents and community should be truly proud of all of them. With best wishes to all of you from Val, Tim, Miriam & Justine Bullen Ph: 204-348-2782

As the Chair of the Reunion Committee, I would like to send a Big Welcome to all former students, teachers, parents and friends of the Cypress School. Registration deadline is April 1, 2009. Forms are on the Reunion link, they can be printed off and mailed to us. I went to Cypress school for Grades 1-6(no such thing as Kindergarten then.) I feel priveleged to have beenable to send my three kids to the same school. We are excited about celebrating as a family this great school. Looking forward to seeing you. Deb Young(Jonsson)

    Comments: I drove “through” Cypress River frequently when I went to Med school at the Uni of Manitoba in Winnipeg coming from my wife’s parents home in Belcourt, ND USA. Always thought the area was great, but recently, listening to Neil Young’s “Prairie Wind”, hearing him talk about the old family Farm in Cypress River, never realized Cypress Hill was the “founding locational home” to one of my favorite muscians. And to think I drove through and past it on HWY 2 all the time. Amazing what life gives you. So truly enjoy that priceless, unforgettable, life changing prairie wind that colorfully blows past you!

    Comments: I try to come out there every fall hunting and always smile when i think of Cypress. My mother, now deceased grew up there and always spoke fondly of it. Her maiden name was Linda Holmes who married Ray Burley from Mariapolis. I look forward to seeing Cypress again this fall ! Regards and best wishes to you all !

    Comments: I was looking up this place because in Feb of this year, I met the nicest couple from Cypress River in the Dominican. As I am reading the entires I see that the last name is the same as Patrick’s the young man I met. He was vacationing with Jenny Steele. He is a grain farmer..and she a student. If you are related to them.. hats off.. they are 2 of the nicest kids we met ..
    looking for a population count. I come from a small village of about 700 people.
    hi to Patrick and Jenny

    Comments: Cypress is still a strong memory for me. Gladys and Tom Kenyon’s house is gone but it lives on in my memory and in a song that I wrote for him and the nature of country life. I still have a very close connection to family that also fell Cypress was home, including my father, his two sisters Carlee and Phyliss and also the connection my cousins have to the town as well. Of course, the Dregers lived there for a while. Good luck and I hope to carry a sense of who you are now with a sense of who you were when I was there often.
    P.S. I was watching Corner Gas and thought that it could have been Cypress instead of Dog River!!! My Urban partner loves the show and loves the sensibility of a small town. Who knows; Any real estate lots next to a water source available out there? In the memory of Tom and Gladys,I hope all is well out there!
