Mount Saviour Monastery
For the first time in many years all the fruit trees were barren
The heavy crop of last year and the mild winter seem to be the cause of
this rare phenomenon. The town of Big Flats cleaned the ditches along
the road and paved the one mile road. Our main expense of the month
was the repair of our road to St.Gertrude's (1/2 mile) and a new layer
of asphalt. Towards the end of the month, Br, Pierre went to
Canada for his annual family visit and spent 24 hours with 4 college
classmates and their spouse to reminisce events of 60 years ago.
