Historical Date/s: 97-04-11 Type of Event: MAGDALENA FILIPOWICH 100th Birthday

MAGDALENA FILIPOWICH Mr. Walt Lastewka (St. Catharines, Lib.): Mr. Speaker, it was April 16, 1897 in a small village in Austria when a little girl was born to Pauline and Thomas Kowalchuk. They named her Magdalena. Magdalena sailed to Canada with her family in 1903 and they settled in Tiny, Saskatchewan. In 1915 Magdalena married Michael Filipowich. The couple built a small, two-bedroom home in Swan Plain, Saskatchewan, where they had 10 children. The little house still stands as a reminder of the hard work and dedication of one of this country's great families. Magdalena has lived in my riding of St. Catharines since 1956. She now boasts 37 grandchildren, 85 great-grandchildren and 24 great-great-grandchildren. This Sunday, Magdalena Filipowich and her many friends and family will celebrate her 100th birthday. I want to join with them in this special celebration and say to Magdalena happy birthday, congratulations and God bless.

Historical Date/s: Type of Event: Tire family

The Tire Family you have posted on your website as being near Dafoe, Saskatchewan is not entirely correct. It is close to 30 miles from Dafoe near the former hamlet of Daphne, Saskatchewan. Our farm is about 3 miles form the "Tire Family". The Ron Bohnen Family used to operate a Gas Station there years ago. I remember that they used to have a variety of different animals inside as well such a monkeys, parrots, etc. Ron used to drive the school bus for the area.
