The Stanley Cup Visits North Bay

from Ken Pagan of the North Bay Nugget,

Wayne Yeo had been to a private Stanley Cup party before—but it was 42 years ago, when Carl Brewer, the late Toronto Maple Leafs defenceman, hosted a cottage gathering in Keswick, Ont.

He remembers getting to celebrate with Leafs greats such as Frank Mahovlich and watching the Leafs’ 1967 Stanley Cup parade.

Thursday’s Stanley Cup celebration was a bit more special for Yeo and his wife, Barb—their son, Mike, returned to North Bay’s Memorial Gardens with Lord Stanley’s mug and about 1,500 fans joined in the celebration.
