High School - Burlington, Ontario, Canada
This is M. M. Robinson High School, where I spent most of my teenage years. In Burlington we have two government funded school systems the Catholic school board and the public school board. MMR is a public school. It was named after Melville Mark (Bobby) Robinson (1888-1974), a Burlington fruit-farmer who was the sports editor of the Hamilton Spectator (a newpaper) and who founded the British Empire Games (later the Commonwealth games) in 1930. He was inducted into the Sports Hall of Fame in the 1950s. That goofy man giving the thumbs-up in the Subaru is my husband (don't mind him, he went to Catholic school). You're it Carol!
