The Drumheller Mail - - AROUND TOWN -

We won­der if there are any mem­bers of Shan­dro's fam­ily still around the val­ley, as we would like to re­unite them with a keep­sake that has been around the of­fice for years. In his early years, Joe played a lot of sports around town, one of which was the Wye base­ball team, play­ing with the likes of Butch Slater, Bruce Vick­ers, and Johnny An­der­son. Even ear­lier than that, Joe must have been a boxer as he won a medal from the Am­a­teur Ath­letic Union of Canada Cham­pi­onship in 1923 in the novice 75 lb. di­vi­sion. The medal is at the of­fice and we would love to re­unite some mem­ber of Joe's fam­ily with it, and hear more about what hap­pened to him through­out the rest of his life. Joe
