Many thanks to Brian C for donning his chef’s apron again as king of the BBQ. Thanks to Herman for making sure that the actual BBQ got to Eamon’s for the event and finally thanks to the 50+ members and their guests who participated.
This year we had the added treat of being able to see, first hand, the work which Ray Bouillet and members of the Eamon’s Historical Society have undertaken thus far in restoration of the Garage.
The weather was just about right. Not too hot. Not too windy. The social time was good. There was plenty of food, courtesy of the salad’s and treats which members brought along to share.
If you couldn’t be with us this year, then make sure to attend in 2019.
Here’s a few images of the classics on display.

The building now has full power so our ability to hold monthly meetings there is getting ever closer. In addition, Brent and Don have been hard at work applying primer to the completed drywall which is now ready for final painting.
The Eamon’s Garage Historical Society is working to restore the Historic Garage. Starting in January 2016 with its relocation to the AG Society Grounds in High River, the Society and many sponsors have worked diligently to bring this piece of Calgary history back to life.
Originally located on Crowchild Trail just west of Calgary, this Art Deco building was a way-station on the old highway to Banff.
It gave way to LRT construction in Calgary and was in storage for 4 years before being relocated to High River.
Restoration of the Building is no small task and will take many man-hours and thousands of dollars to complete.
Following the success of the 2017 Donate and Win campaign, the Society is anxious to repeat for 2018 with a far more impressive vehicle at stake.
For 2018, every $20 you donate to the Eamon’s Garage Historical Society will result in your name joining others for the September 23, 2018 draw. This year’s vehicle is a customized 1929 Ford Tudor.
Spec’s for this vehicle are outstanding…. Here’s a sample….

Ray Bouillet, Brian and Harold Chipchase, Wes Shaw, Jeff Langford, Herman Groenwold and many others have worked to get the Eamon’s project to its current status.
From the attached pictures, the obvious changes include … the floors have all been poured, walls have been framed and insulated, the electrical panel and branch circuits have been installed.
The Happy New Owner is Monti Graham of Calgary!
Congratulations to Monti and thanks to all of you who contributed to the restoration of the Historic Eamon’s Garage.
