One J Krause, president, is identified in this article and not sure (but it must be) if this is my father H William Krause. At any rate, this article discusses the formation of a Mennonite Recreation Association of Leamington getting a Provincial charter, dated April 30, 1947, and now organized for some 15 months. They purchased 11 acres on the Leamington Town Line for Tennis and M.R.A. softball games with teams from the vicinities. Now, I remember being told that Dad had argued and decided to leave the Oak Street Mennonite Church at some point when told that he and his friends were not allowed to participate in such sports. Later, I also received a pair of my father's white trousers from my mother that I wore during the summer of 1963 when courting Lynda.

Point Pelee Fisherman Catches 140-Pound Sturgeon

Six-feet long and tipping the scales at 140 pounds, this is the largest sturgeon Mr. William Krause of the William Krause and Son fishery at Point Pelee has caught in 21 years. The sturgeon was lifted out of a pound net yesterday. Left is Mr. Bill Krause and at right is his son, Eric. The large fish yielded 45 pounds of cavier. All three sturgeons are valued at $200.

-----------------------

A large sturgeon weighing 140 pounds, was hauled in by the William Krause and Son's fishery at Point Pelee last week-end. Caught in a pound net, it was the largest sturgeon caught at Point Pelee in many years. The large fish yielded 45 pounds of cavier. Mr. Krause says the fish was the largest caught by him in the past 21 years.

Those were the days. This picture taken 26 years ago shows the crew of a Wm Krause and Sons Fisheries boat with three large size sturgeons. The fish, a source of caviar, were taken in pound nets and were quite common in those days, but are somewhat of a rarity today.
Left to right are: Bill Scheller, Wm. H. Krause, Rudy Krause, Vern Scheller, Wm. Krause Sr. and Bill Wilson. Krause Fisheries are still active in the fish business on Lake Erie.

1962

  • Adult smelt first appeared in very large numbers at the western end of the Central Basin in 1951 (Kennedy, 1961). These fish were probably the 1948 year class, which suggests that a large sanctuary existed by 1948. Smelt were not harvested in significant numbers until 1952, and not intensively until 1960. Very large numbers were present in 1953 and 1954, judging from the numbers caught accidentally in the fishermen’s large mesh nets. They continued to be abundant in spawning runs at Pt. Pelee until 1962, then declined somewhat. ... Adult smelt migrate eastward across the Central Basin after spawning  at Pt. Pelee ...

Canadian fishermen recall runs of ripe walleyes to sand and gravel areas on the west shore of Pt. Pelee and also along the north shore of Lake Erie near Kingsville (W. H. Krause, personal communication). These areas have been used by few, if any, walleyes in recent years. The grounds off Pt. Pelee have become progressively modified over the past 20 years by a black, malodorous deposit noticeable on trap net anchors. The changes are probably due to domestic and cannery pollution from Leamington and other communities. According to fishermen, various reefs off Pt. Pelee and inshore areas off Pelee Island had large spawning runs until relatively recent years (H. Tiessen, personal communication).

  • The second time that I tried to court Lynda. Lynda was manning her Pop stand as usual, this time with Joe Kirkwood Sr. putting on a fabulous exhibition of trick golf shooting.

    • The first time Lynda turned me down flat when I called for her to go with me to my second Grade 13 graduation. After my call, she laughed with her friends that "Uncle Eric" had asked her out. I was called "Uncle Eric" not just because I was always there to drive her and some of her closest friends to and fro in my 1939 Pontiac coup (Lynda was usually the one to sit sideways in the small back seat), but also because I had already dated most of these same friends!

That August early evening, after work at my Dad's fishery, I came in my father's dated white pants (may have had on white buck shoes as well) to the golf course that her father managed. There I hung out by the fence near her pop stand, talking to her. Asked her out that night for Pizza which she accepted. Shortly afterwards, asked her to go with me to the Drive-In (local passion pit) and again she accepted. Our dates continued unabated after that for 3 1/2 years until we were married on December 3, 1966.

1963 - 1964

  • I undertook my undergraduate work - University of Windsor (1963-1967) - while living at the Point excepting for school weekdays during 1963-1964 when I (and Klaus Wiebe who also attended Leamington High) rented an apartment in a home in Windsor.


     

  • Vehicle: Used 1956 Dodge and kept only for a short time just prior to purchasing my 1965 Dodge which I must have purchased in 1964 just prior to using it to drive to University in September of 1965

1964 - 1967

MY FIRST NEW CAR

  • Vehicle: New 1965 Arctic White Dodge 330, 4-Dr. Sedan, 225 slant 6 engine, Torque flight automatic, with radio.

MY GUTLESS 6-CYLINDER WONDER
SO FAR HAVE NOT LOCATED IN MY PERSONAL COLLECTION AN ORIGINAL PICTURE OF MY CAR!

"The 330 four-door sedan was the least expensive full-sized Dodge offered in the 1965 lineup with a starting price of $2,887 ..."

"Long popular with Canadians, Dodge entered its 51st year with a fresh-from-the-ground-up model line.
The Windsor-based Dodge Division of Chrysler Canada fielded thirteen full-sized beauties, in four series for 1965,
every one of them just itching to knock the socks off the competition ..."

Every car in the Dodge line carried the economical Slant-Six engine as standard equipment. This year, the mill was rated at 145 horsepower @ 4000 RPM ... Dodge power ranged from the miserly 145-horsepower Slant-Six engine ..."

"An open letter to prospective purchasers promised that the newest Dodge was “a lot more car for your money.” The folks in marketing weren’t kidding. “Dodge has a longer wheelbase then ever before.” Now, it was stretched to unprecedented 3 073 millimetres (121 inches) in length. Inviting people to come and look, the letter read, “It has a wider tread between the rear and front wheels: over five feet (1 524 millimetres). It has hundreds of extra pounds of solid strength. Dodge is big.” In an era when compact cars were king Dodge boldly proclaimed, “thrift comes in a big new size.”

"The envelope was a massive, squarish unitized body punctuated with deep full-length creases at mid-body and the upper door line. The overall look was lean and uncluttered. Quad headlights were imbedded horizontally in an attractive ribbed pattern grille that took on a barbell look. Trapezoidal taillights were the end song of a long, rectangular rear deck cove, called the “Delta.” Bumpers, fore and aft, were appropriately angular ..."

"Billed as the “next best thing to money in your pocket,” the lowest priced Dodge 330 didn’t even get the Polara name. It was offered as a four-door sedan, a six-passenger and nine-passenger wagon. Gone were the carpets, replaced with rubber matting. The upholstery was a highly durable Jacquard fabric with silver metallic threads offered in one of three colours. Rear arm rests disappeared but there were still two sun visors and dual horns. The practical 300 was positioned in the price range of many of the “jazzed up compacts” but staked its reputation on being bigger, roomier and more powerful ..."

http://www.oldcarscanada.com/2011/11/1965-dodge.html

In 1965, in Canada, the  Dodge line was 330, Polara 440, Polara 880, and Monaco. The Canadian 1965 Dodge 330 was basically a Polara with Savoy (Fury I in the U.S.) interior. The only options on it were Torqueflite and a block heater. Built in Windsor, Ontario, the body was done in one colour, including the trunk and firewall, unlike its USA cousin which could be two-toned. - Price new: Approximately $2500.00

This was my good friend Nick Toth and myself, the summer that we worked at theLakeside Park in Kingsville
when Victor Joseph Demel took off with our back wages promised to us to come out of the take from a second, proposed wrestling match. Among our chores, we supervised the pavillion as a roller rink use, prepared the pavillion for the various indoor events, and kept the beach free of seaweed, dead fish, etc.

Krause-Richards Rites

The Faith Mennonite Church on Sherk Street, Leamington, was the setting Saturday for the wedding of Lynda Richards, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Michael Richards, of RR Leamington, and Eric Krause, son of Mr. and Mrs. William Krause Jr., of RR 1, Leamington. Rev. George Janzen officiated for the ceremony. The bride's floor length gown of white peau de soie had an empire waist with a panel of applique down the front. It was accented by a matching coat, featuring a scoop neckline and long sleeves, which formed the chapel train.

Her bouffant veil was held in place by an orchid-like headpiece trimmed with seed pearls. She carried a cascade of white roses with feathered mums.

Shirley Richards, sister of the bride, was the maid of honor. Bridesmaids were Kathy Krause, sister of the groom; Mary Lynn Setterington, Lily Shuster and Lynn Wiper, friends of the bride.

Their floor-length gowns of royal blue velvet featured matching capes and they carried white carnations formed in a, sphere with royal blue velvet handles.

The best man was John Kornelson, cousin of the groom. Ushers were Bill Krause, brother of the groom, George Toews and Paul Krause, cousins of the groom, and Nick Toth.

The bride's mother wore a blue brocade dress with matching accessories. The groom's mother was also in blue with navy accessories.

A reception was held in the Tudor Room of Diana Restaurant after the ceremony.

For a wedding trip to the southern states, the bride chose a forest green walking suit with a corsage of baby orchids.

On their return, the couple will reside at RR 1, Leamington.

1969

  • At first, National Park status probably had little effect on the day-to-day lives of the naval reserve residents. Eventually it dramatically altered all the pre-Park use of the area, setting the stage for what Point Pelee has become today.
  • For example, by the 1960s, several commercial fisheries still operated from the Park. But the government's decision to acquire private land within the Park partly to "... improve the scenic drive" drove all but the Girardin and Krause fisheries out.
  • In 1962, the Girardin fishery moved north of the Park.
  • Seven years later, the Krause fishery's lease expired, and they too left. The demise of this, the last commercial fishery in the Park brought an end to an era which had lasted more than 100 years.

SEE THE FISHERIES OF POINT PELEE - GIRARDIN - FOR MORE OF THE TREAD TO THE NOTES BELOW

Hi Kathleen: Great pictures. This is when the Park was busy, busy, busy - we lived within the Park, and often we had to wait, wait, wait just to get to other side of the road so we could go down to the beach, where my father had his Fishery. Indeed, sometimes the bugs then were so thick that these cars in the Park had to watch it as it was like driving on ice!! As sure you will remember too. Eric

  • "Wed, 26 Nov 2008 04:53:20 [NOTE FROM KATHLEEN HAACK]

just found them hi eric, i remember having to close up the cottage and stay inside for what seemed like forever when they sprayed (fogged) for those bugs and "skeeters" i used to love to see the fishflies on the window and door screens sunning themselves and fanning their wings in the sunshine. we lived down by the bluebirds cottages and i remember walking barefoot on the tar road in the cool of the morning and by 10am in the summer you better have shoes on if you wanted to walk on the road cause that tar got hot and gooey. we would walk the beach all the way from the cottage to the leamington pier or the other way all the way to the end of the point at least once a week, i think the cottage was about midway between the two. remember falling asleep to the sound of the waves either crashing or whispering along the shore. and looking down the cresent beach curve back toward kingsville watching the sun set on days and days of pure joy.we would have a contest to see who could spot the most freighters on the horizen. i didn't know until this past week that people like your family actually lived in the park, i thought it was a place people could only visit and stay for a while; i've looked at the school pictures you've posted on your site and find it amazing that "real life" went on in the point. i miss those days something fierce. k  [Eric - YES - THE SPRAY - We also got the DDT big time as well as insecticide spray as we lived in the midst of an apple orchard.]

  • In 1951 my family stayed in cottage #1. We vacationed every year until 1963 and that year we stayed in cottage 10. Then I took my children then in 1965 to 1968. I have many friends in the area and usually get up there once a year. I lived in Detroit and am now in Texas. I goggled Blue Bird Cottages and it was great seeing someone else wrote about them. I recall Mrs. Sarah and Pete very well. I also recall the sign by the flowers that said "please to not pitch the flowers." I also recall Pete asking if we were going to the Bitch, meaning Beach. My dad always got a chuckle when he said that. No hot water and 1 hot shower in the shower stalls. I can recall like it was yesterday the smell of the cedar the shower structure was made of. We ate across the street at Nobel's and at Tina's which was down on the lake road where the opening from the marina to the lake is. I also remember roller skating and diving off the pier. Once in a while we saw a freighter at the pier filling up with Heinz products, and toured the plant as well. Great memories from a great place. Just some of my thoughts I thought you might like to read.

In my day, the road to Krause Fisheries once stood opposite the lane to my parents house.

When Lynda and I married, we first lived in a cottage immediately north
of my parents house, between their house and further north, my grand parents house.
This is where my uncle Rudy Krause and Wife Eleanor lived before they moved to a new house at Sturgeon Creek.
