Kathleen Glancy - Picnic at Dean Orphanage


About this memory

The Dean School did not only house village children but many from surrounding neighbourhoods. The Dean Orphanage being one of them, a short walking distance away. Kathleen Glancy recalls two of the girls Isobel and Margo Brouillard who were sisters. They were allowed to invite friends they had made to their birthday and Christmas parties. Our end of term school sports were held in the grounds of the orphanage. Three legged race,egg and spoon and sack races .Great fun and we all shared a picnic provided by our mothers.
