Seeks People with Memories of Lions Club Field Trip to Expo67

GARSON, ON, September 7, 2022:  

Lisa Coleman-Brown, a member of the Sudbury Writers’ Guild and Playwrights Guild of Canada, has been awarded an Ontario Arts Council Theatre Recommender Grant from Tangled Art+Disability in support of the creation of her play “Garson Girl”.

As it will be based on the true story of 11-year-old Carolyn Astgen’s adventure on the Lions Club sponsored 1967 field trip which took local schoolchildren to Montreal’s World’s Fair: Expo67 by train, Lisa is eager to contact anyone (students, teachers, chaperones, Lions Club members, or railway workers etc.) who participated in this trip and can share their own, or their senior family members’ memories, photos, slides, or home movies.

Those willing to be interviewed are asked to contact Lisa by calling 705-693-0947, or emailing lisacolemanbrown@fibreop.ca


The bi-polar author of many published short stories, Garson resident Lisa recently co-wrote the radio play “Inferno 6077: Born Out of Fire” commissioned by Northern Screams and the Northern Ontario Railroad Museum & Heritage Centre for their pandemic friendly, Tourism Award nominated, drive-in style Terror Train Haunt produced in October 2020. Her psychedelic one-act comedy play “2 Guys on a Wall” about the building of INCO’s Super Stack during Sudbury’s 1970 tornado was published in Laurentian University’s literary journal SULPHUR IV in 2014.
