To A Wonderful Staff, I was wondering if I could look at the 1935 Mount St. Charles year book in which my father was in. I have been there this Labor day, September 3, 2012. I was fascinated in talking with a girl who went to the same school with me, her name was Mrs. Peloquin. I also met my daughter's principal, Mr. Peloquin , where he was at Halliwell School when my daughter, Anne-Marie was 8 years old who is now a nurse and she is 40 years old. I thought the play was well done and the actors were so real in that time period. I enjoyed everything, but most of all was the living room with the player piano, just like I remembered at my Grandmother Rose Helene Forcier Plante and Emile Plante's home so many fond memories ago. Thank you for all for a wonderful day! Great staff, friendly and informative :) Denise M. Tessier Dufault and Andre R. Dufault
