Back in 1909 in Brucefield, Ontario, a school house was constructed to serve the children in the community. Later, that school house was converted into a home and eventually was owned by Brian and Bonnie O'Reilly, who raised their children - Ryan and Cal - there, along with as many as 50 foster children over the years.
The school house is now more than 110 years old and is currently owned by Pat and Lisa DeJong, who have two children.
Recently, Pat started renovating the kitchen and found what his family considers several "treasures" hiding behind some old cabinets.

EDMONTON - Soon after arriving in the bubble in Edmonton, Troy Brouwer opened his hotel room door, turned on the lights and found something that made him feel right at home.
On his bedside table was a photo of his wife, Carmen, and their two children, Kylie, 7, and Cade, 4. Next to that were two cards from his kids made out of construction paper - Kylie's said "I love you dad to the moon and back" and Cade's featured a hand-drawn Blue Note and the message "Go Dad, I love you."
Ryan O'Reilly has been nominated for the King Clancy Memorial Trophy, which is given annually "to the player who best exemplifies leadership qualities on and off the ice and has made a noteworthy humanitarian contribution in his community."
