  1. My husband’s family has lived in Coquitlam for over 126 years. His dad & aunt are featured in the Coquitlam 100 Years book, Relflects of the Past. My father in law attended Glen School when it was a one room school house. He used to walk his cow to school & leave it in the pasture next to the school. When school was done, he’d walk the cow back home. My father in law’s grandma was the caretaker of Glen school at that time. When my father in law grew up,he became the caretaker. He met my mother in law at Glen school-she was the kindergarten teacher. They raised three boys on Glen Drive, all of who, attended Glen school. My husband went to school with Terry Fox & his siblings, Our ties to this community run deep.
