September 26th 2016

Today I went to visit Mme Nault at the Chateau in Legal. Having worked with her for so many years at Legal School, it was a pleasure to sit down with her and spend a bit of time sharing memories and talking about the various activities we are now involved with. Mme Nault is Madame Nault. At 96 years young, she is till doing crafts and keeps herself busy. She was proud to show me some of the artwork she does to decorate her room. Her chair is surrounded with newspaper clippings and small craft projects. She misses her house very much, as space is limited in her room but she is not unhappy at the Chateau. She loves to talk about her work at the church and how much she enjoyed it. She keeps fond memories of her teaching years even though specific events are beginning to fade away. Her recollections of our reunion of 2011 immediately brings a radiant warming smile to her face. A smile that touches you very deeply as it is so genuine and full of love.

If you have the opportunity, I encourage you to go visit Mme Nault at the Chateau. It may take her a few seconds to recognise you as her visual recognition is somewhat impaired but the second you identify yourself verbally she makes the connection. She will enjoy your visit and so will you.

Hi Everyone

Here is part two of Sheila's trip to Germany. Interesting read.

21 teachers/staff have confirmed their presence for the reunion. Assuming your spouses/friends will accompany you, we are looking at a minimum of 42 people in attendance. Some others have indicated their desire to attend but were still unsure. I will negotiate with the caterer with that number specifying that more will attend. Please let me know asap if you will attend. Knowing numbers will help plan the event.

Hi Everyone

First:

I invite you all to read this new posting from Sheila Scharmann. Interesting. Some people are very active!! But sometimes the unexpected happens. Sheila had an interesting spring break incident she chose to share with us today. Refer to the teachers'page for more.

Second:

Many have not yet communicated their intentions to me with respect to the teachers' reunion on September 17th at Diane Landers place. The intent at the moment is to have the supper catered by one of the local caterers in Legal. The cost per plate will be in the vicinity of $25.00 a plate. I need to hear from all those who intend to participate in order for me to negotiate with the caterers. I hope that all the ones who have not yet answered will do so, not only for negotiating purposes but because I and all the ones who will be present, would like to see you there. If you choose not to come to the reunion, please let me know as well as this will eliminate the guessing and make it easier to plan the event.

Please note that if you are still undecided there is no urgency yet. But if you know you want to attend or not attend and have simply neglected to make your intentions known, I would appreciate you letting me know sooner rather than later.

Hoping to see you at the reunion,

Raymond

Remembrance Day poem written by Sheila Scharmann. See teachers' page


November 4th 2015

The young man in the net for the "Moosejaw Warriors" is a very likely candidate for the NHL's draft this coming spring. At 17 years of age he is considered one of the top Junior prospects amongst the goal keepers in the Junior ranks at the present time. This young man happens to be the grandson of Remi and Denise Cyr. Last month(courtesy of Remi), I had the opportunity to go to the Oil-Kings' game in Edmonton against the Warriors. Zack Sawchenko(that's his name)came up with a very strong performance, holding the Kings to only one goal up until the last couple of minutes in the third period. Zach had to come up big on a number of occasions to keep the Oil-Kings off the scoresheet. The final score was three to two for the Warriors and Zack played an important role in the victory for Moosejaw. Useless to say that the game was most excitng!

Following the game Zack came down to the bleachers to meet his many cousins and grandparents along with auntie Yvette, who were present to see him play. He signed some cards for his cousins and spent some time telling us about his hockey life while pursuing his studies. Being a grade 12 student, playing hockey at a high level is very challenging. However, Zack is doing very well in his studies. In the picture, he is signing autographs for his family members who could not make it to the game.

Incidently, Jack Sawchenko will most likely be the starting goalie on Nov 9th and/or 10th when the Russians will be the visitors in Kelonaw, to play the Western Canada "Junior Stars' Hockey Team. The games will be broadcasted on TSN. Mark your calendars hockey fans!!

Dear colleagues

It is with deep regret that I learnt of the passing of Mrs Fabiola Hunting on September 24th at the age of 90.

Mrs Hunting and her husband Dick were caretakers at Legal School in the 60s and early 70s. For those of us who were fortunate enough to work with Fabiola, we know her and remember her as the kind, generous and loving person she was.

Mrs Hunting was a gentle women who quietly and efficiently performed her work never complaining and with a smile for everyone she met. Throughout her life she respected the people surrounding her regardless of their ages and status in life. It is hard to imagine Mrs Hunting without a smile on her face and a kind word to share.

To the family we offer are deepest condolences

I received this note this morning from our good friend and colleague Jeanne Roska. Our deepest sympathies are with the Roska family today as they morn the death of John Roska husband and father.

To: Raymond Tremblay

I have sad news to pass along- John passed away after a short stay at the Sturgeon Hospital. It was not expected. We were very hopeful that he would come back home and be as good as before. We have to accept that God had different plans for him. He died very peacefully with his family beside him.

We are having a prayer service at St.Patrick's RC church in Clyde, for John this Friday at 7pm and a funeral mass at the Westlock Community Hall on Saturday at 10:30 am.

Please let Terry & Denise know, as well as anyone else from Legal & the Osoyoos friends. John was so appreciative of your friendship.

Jeanne

Jeanne we are so sorry to hear this news. What can I say? He was such a gentle and generous man. One could not help but love him as the super person he was. I personally met John for the fisrt time this year as we met in Osoyoos. He caught our hearts immediately. Marie and I have a hard time accepting this reality but we will cherish his memory forever.

Jeanne our prayers are with you today. We regret not being able to attend the funeral service but we will be there in spirit.

Sincerely

Ray and Marie

Jeanne, John, Ray, and Marie

After being interviewed by the school administration,
the prospective teacher said:

'Let me see if I've got this right.

'You want me to go into that room with all those kids,
correct their disruptive behavior, observe them for signs of abuse,
monitor their dress habits, censor their T-shirt messages, and instill in them a love for learning.

'You want me to check their backpacks for weapons, wage war on drugs and sexually transmitted diseases, and raise their sense of self esteem and personal pride.

'You want me to teach them patriotism and good citizenship, sportsmanship and fair play, and how to register to vote, balance a checkbook, and apply for a job.

'You want me to check their heads for lice, recognize signs of antisocial behavior, and make sure that they all pass the final exams.

'You also want me to provide them with an equal education regardless of their handicaps, and communicate regularly with their parents in English, Spanish or any other language, by letter, telephone, newsletter, and report card.

'You want me to do all this with a piece of chalk, a blackboard, a bulletin board, a few books, a big smile, and a starting salary that qualifies me for food stamps.

'You want me to do all this, and then you tell me......

I CAN'T PRAY?

Hi Everyone

Marie and I would like to wish you all a very happy Thanks Giving Day. As Canadians living in a country free of wars we have plenty to be thankful for. Let us thank the Lord for our families, children, grand children, friends and community. May we maintain strong rapports with the people we cherrish. If at times we have neglected them, it is never too late to amend and renew the ties of friendship. A good friend is an invaluable gift. Many friends is a source of strenght comfort and joy. On this thanks giving day let us take the time to include in our family celebrations, a few moments for our friends and all the individuals who in one way or another, contribute to the well being of our community.

From Marie and I, have a most enjoyable Thanks Giving Day with your family.

Starta - St Albert and area retired teachers

Starta held its monthly Breakfast Meeting last Friday and following an invitation from Helen Kieran, I decided to attend the function. Well useless to say that I enjoyed the event fully. First it was nice to meet Helen, who as usual was doing some volunteer work for Starta and also Leo Bruseker who was MC for the event. Also in attendance were Raymond and Rachelle St Martin -- both former students from Legal School. In all there were probably 150+ former teachers in attendance, all eager to partake in the delicious breakfast prepared by the Golf and Country Club and share memories with others. A guest speaker from the St. Albert Public Library gave us a most interesting presention outlining the many services provided by the library. At one point during the meeting new members were presented; each one having to say a few words about themselves. The atmosphere was very relaxed and jovial. All and all a very interesting reunion.

In conclusion, I invite you to attend the Starta Meetings. Meeting former colleagues is always a rewarding experience. Come, meet the group and make the event even better.

Fred Scharmann

As I am writting these lines, students from MCHS are getting ready for the first "Fred Scharmann Memorial Hike". Following is an article by Stephen Dafoe concerning the event.

Morinville -

The Fred Sharmann Memorial Hiking Trip departs from Morinville Community High School (MCHS) Wednesday morning, an inaugural outing to the mountains in memory of a Morinville businessman remembered as an avid outdoorsman and community volunteer. About 20 MCHS students will take part in the three-day trip, returning Saturday.

Greg Boutestein, an MCHS teacher and friend of the late Fred Scharmann said the trip has been at the school for many years but has not been as consistent as the annual school bike trip through Jasper National Park, which Scharmann was a dedicated volunteer participant in for about 16 years. The hiking trip was revitalized last year and will continue annually in Scharman's honour. "With Fred's passing, to me it just made absolute sense to name it in Fred's honour because of the bike trip and his love of the mountains,” Boutestein said. "He and I did a lot of those bike trips together."

Boutestein said students would do some longer hiking Thursday and Friday, travelling up to some alpine areas and covering about 20 kilometres per day depending on the weather. The MCHS teacher said September is a good time to make the trek because there is no snow to contend with. "It's just a whole different beast when you are dealing with snow," he said.

Sharmann's widow, Sheila, said she likes the idea of the trip taking place early in the school year. "I think it's also nice at this time of the year that the kids can get a bond early in the year that will stand them throughout their years," she said, adding she is pleased the school has decided to dedicate the trip in her husband's memory. "Fred was huge in the community in a variety of ways, starting way back with the scouting movement. He started with scouts, then soccer, and the ambulance, and RCMP auxiliary. He just had his finger in the pie and he believed in making the community a better place by working with the people."

. Scharmann said her husband was fond of the mountains and loved to take part in the annual Roger Champagne Memorial bike Trip, an annual outing that put him in his element.

"This trip would just be a natural for him," she said. "It just matches everything that Fred stood for - love of nature, helping the community, working with kids, continuing to bond with Greg [Boutestein]. Everything he stood for, this trip embodies. I couldn't be happier and am very honoured."

Scharmann hopes the memorial trip will encourage students to one day become dedicated volunteers like those accompanying the students on the trip. "I think it is also teaching them to do things that are a little bit unusual," she said. "Not every high school kid is into hiking. So you are teaching them that is a great thing to do, and they see it is important to give back to the community too in that way. Maybe one of these kids, when they are 40, will be a support vehicle driver. That is another way that they are educated and Fred would want that, too."

Boutestein is pleased to see another MCHS nature outing taking place each year. "Any trip like this where you can take kids up and get them engaged in the wild and in the mountains and taking advantage of that; that to me is huge he said. "That's education at its purest form. You are not teaching them math. You are not teaching them science. You are teaching them a passion for where they live and a passion for nature in general."

We're enjoying life together - about 1/2 time in Edmonton and 1/2 in Kelowna. Kate was in zambia with me this year, assisting with my field school in public health and helping some organizations build their capacity for program evaluation. We also get to work together on developing early childhood development framework for Alberta.

Best wishes to all,

In the mean time we will spend time at our Lake awaiting our possession date. We are looking forward to start our new life in a different setting eventhough we did enjoy life in Legal for all those years. However, comes a time when a move become necessary. With age, comes the needs to downsize and enjoy life a little more. That is what we wish to do.

Greg Boutestein, an MCHS teacher and friend of the late Fred Scharmann said the trip has been at the school for many years but has not been as consistent as the annual school bike trip through Jasper National Park, which Scharmann was a dedicated volunteer participant in for about 16 years. The hiking trip was revitalized last year and will continue annually in Scharman's honour. "With Fred's passing, to me it just made absolute sense to name it in Fred's honour because of the bike trip and his love of the mountains,” Boutestein said. "He and I did a lot of those bike trips together."

Boutestein said students would do some longer hiking Thursday and Friday, travelling up to some alpine areas and covering about 20 kilometres per day depending on the weather. The MCHS teacher said September is a good time to make the trek because there is no snow to contend with. "It's just a whole different beast when you are dealing with snow," he said.

Sharmann's widow, Sheila, said she likes the idea of the trip taking place early in the school year. "I think it's also nice at this time of the year that the kids can get a bond early in the year that will stand them throughout their years," she said, adding she is pleased the school has decided to dedicate the trip in her husband's memory. "Fred was huge in the community in a variety of ways, starting way back with the scouting movement. He started with scouts, then soccer, and the ambulance, and RCMP auxiliary. He just had his finger in the pie and he believed in making the community a better place by working with the people."

. Scharmann said her husband was fond of the mountains and loved to take part in the annual Roger Champagne Memorial bike Trip, an annual outing that put him in his element.

"This trip would just be a natural for him," she said. "It just matches everything that Fred stood for - love of nature, helping the community, working with kids, continuing to bond with Greg [Boutestein]. Everything he stood for, this trip embodies. I couldn't be happier and am very honoured."

Scharmann hopes the memorial trip will encourage students to one day become dedicated volunteers like those accompanying the students on the trip. "I think it is also teaching them to do things that are a little bit unusual," she said. "Not every high school kid is into hiking. So you are teaching them that is a great thing to do, and they see it is important to give back to the community too in that way. Maybe one of these kids, when they are 40, will be a support vehicle driver. That is another way that they are educated and Fred would want that, too."

Boutestein is pleased to see another MCHS nature outing taking place each year. "Any trip like this where you can take kids up and get them engaged in the wild and in the mountains and taking advantage of that; that to me is huge he said. "That's education at its purest form. You are not teaching them math. You are not teaching them science. You are teaching them a passion for where they live and a passion for nature in general."

Hi Everyone

This web site is a follow up to the "Teachers and Support Staff's Reunion" of June 2011. Getting together for a few hours and sharing memories of the years gone by, was most rewarding and at the same time it created new memories for us to keep for years to come. Most of all the reunion was the ideal event to renew old friendships and strengthen the bonds amongst all of us.

At the time of the reunion, we all agreed that it would be very desirable to have more reunions in the future. However, this may not happen for a few years, so in the mean time, this Web Site will attempt to keep us all in touch until the next one.

Participation in the Web Site is very simple. Whenever you have something that you want to share with others, you send me an email with the content you want to see on the web. Preferably, compose your text as you want it. I do not have the time to compose the texts and
also I might not do justice to your thoughts. Note however, that I can easily insert images with your texts or links if you want. That is your prerogative.

I hope that this Web Site will become a
valuable tool for you and that it will accomplish what it
intends to do.

I remain yours truly

Raymond Tremblay
