Did you get married or celebrate a special occasion at Minoru Sports Pavilion in the 60s? Were you a member of a group who square danced in the building in the 70s? Perhaps you participated in an aerobics class in the 80s? Maybe you were part of a sports group who used the Pavilion as its headquarters for a tournament or awards celebration?
