On October 29, 2017, it will have been 16 years since Ann Mills, Larry McGuire and I started Ruhr Memories as a Hemer High School web presence; and now the time has come for me to step back and let someone else run the site.

A former Soest High School student, Ed Horka, has kindly agreed to take on day-to-day management. Five years ago, Ed was instrumental in converting Ruhr Memories to its current format, and he has shown an active interest in the site for many years.

Thanks to all those who have contributed photos and money, and thanks also to those who have offered encouragement and promoted the site to their friends and family. Without your support, Ruhr Memories would not have become what it is now—a pictorial history of the experience of Canadian army families in Nordrhein-Westfalen, from their arrival in 1953 to their departure in 1971.
