My brother and I lived at H.R.A.1941-47 I've mostly fond memories. We would draw circles on the ground & play 'marbles' football in fall/baseball in spring. The local Fire Dept would flood the field for ice skating. Christmas was always extra special. Starting from the dorms we would walk down the stairways single file with candles & singing carols and then have a special dinner. Once we had venison - a hunter had donated to us. In the basement was the laundry - bakery and a craft room for our hobbies including Boy Scout meetings. Every fall we would hike out to the B.C. State Park. During teacher conventions we stayed at Roy Crete's parents cottage on the Bay. About once a month we'd get to stay up later to watch a movie in our pajamas - with the old-fashioned projector (that always seem to break down at least once!).
Sister Mary Giles was in charge of senior boys gr.5-8
I could go on & on....hope this was interesting to you. I'm 81,just reminiscing.And hoping someone might see this and recognize me or these experiences. August 29,2014
