Of Fathers, Expectations, and Missing Out on Woodstock.

STORY BY: Ian Dalton
YEAR: 1969
LOCATION: Woodstock, NY

Ian shares a story about his father, a “military man”, who fought for the Canadian Army during World War 2. A man of high expectations, his father got Ian an office job in Toronto when he was 17. Ian’s friends wanted him travel to a concert in 1969, and he felt torn: does he leave the job and disappoint his father, or does he go with his friends? He decided to stay at work, and missed out on the infamous Woodstock music festival. Thanks for sharing, Ian.
