Roy did some serious hanging out at the River Rock Theatre May 21 and 22/10, taking part in the Chilliwack 40th reunion concerts. It was a memorable event with many old friends, both in the band and in the audience. In this photo, Roy and Bill Henderson share a moment at the end of the second encore, a rousing version of ‘Seventeenth Summer’. Bill’s daughter, Saffron, is to the right of Roy. That’s former Collectors/Chilliwacker Claire Lawrence, to the left of Bill. Claire produced Roy’s first, second and fourth LP. As well, Claire co-produced both UHF albums with the group.
