A great big THANK YOU to Cynthia & Ted Downey for this beautiful picture. It is bound to bring back some happy memories for a lot of people. Cynthia also supplied most of the names. There are two names missing so if anyone can help us there, we would be very grateful. Any idea what year this was, Cynthia?
In the last post, Yvonne Dionne spoke of singing in the Kiwanis Music Festival. Therefore I thought it was appropriate to post this picture today. Again, thank you Cynthia & Ted.

Here is Yvonne's comment. Enjoy!
"Wow - I am happy to find this page, and to see comments from Yvonne (Cullen) mentioning Roxanne. I was at St. Pat's for grades 3-5 (1969-1972), starting in the portables with Miss Sears (I think). We lived at 199 Lemarchant Road, which is now gone. I live in Ottawa now. I used to write a friend from Lemarchant, asking about Roxanne, because just before we moved to Ontario (my dad was in the military and we were transferred) one of the Cullen girls was hit by a car on Lemarchant - I saw it happen and it has never left my memory.
St. Pat's was a beautiful time for me. It was one of my most memorable schools (numbering 14 before I graduated high school). I absolutely lived in the library with Sister Redempta (spelling?), reading voraciously anything I could get my hands on. I was in the Choir and we sang at Kiwanis, but I mouthed the words as I was terrified to mess up. I loved the concerts. I was a Girl Guide. I was so curious about the nuns and their residence.
I visited the Church and grounds this summer. Such a good feeling washed over me there.
Would love to hear from anyone who remembers me, and I will keep up here to see what other memories people have.
