Expo 67 and Bobby Kennedy

STORY BY: June July
YEAR: 1967
LOCATION: Montreal, Quebec

June tells us how lucky she was to be chosen as an official hostess for Expo 67 in Montreal, at the age of 22. She spent the best year of her life there, meeting and talking to Robert Kennedy, and taking his children on a tour. Kennedy was assassinated the following year, so BOOM was a bittersweet experience for her - she relived this and other stories from her life! Thanks for sharing, June.
