Who would you especially like to see at the reunion? Everyone.

What is your first memory of Mount de Chantal?  Scary!

What is your last memory of Mount de Chantal? During the graduation ceremony, Bishop Hodges stopped me and talked with me. He had remembered my Dad. It was so kind of the Bishop to mention my Father. After graduation a few nuns wanted to know what was said – "was I starting trouble?"

Most memorable event: Graduation

Favorite musical group while at the Mount: The Beach Boys

Favorite non-classroom activities: Elby’s – a time for good food.

Place/space/sound that captures the Mount in memory: The change of class bell. I always see Ginger’s face – wonder why?
