A Kapuskasing man’s memories of his life growing up is part of a new book set to be released. Warren Lemon details of his experiences from leaving New Brunswick as a young teen and then showing up in Kapuskasing, a community he has called home for 55 years.
“I thought I should put that in writing,” he said. “Those that know me or knew me and maybe some might be interested in what life was like growing up in those different places. So that kind of spurred me to put some thoughts together in seven different chapters of my life.”
Lemon moved to Ontario and took a Forest Ranger course and then saw a job opening for workers up at a mill in Kapuskasing. He would spend 38 years working in the woodlands department in the mill.
“I think readers of all ages can relate to my book and to about 125 personal and digestive actual accounts of myself and others,” he said. “It can be relevant to assist the younger generation in making wise decisions.”
Lemon says he loves Kapuskasing and couldn’t imagine living anywhere else. The book is at the publisher waiting to be printed, and will be available in the future both as a hard copy or for an e-reader.
