Somehow I have come to think that my First Communion happened at Easter time. But I know that isn’t true. It was in summer, Sunday, July 16, 1950.
Each year after our June exams in our one room school house, Fairview SD #174, on Highway #16 (now #48), my five older sisters and I attended an extra two weeks of school.
For the first two weeks of July we trekked with horse and buggy to Rastadt School in St Peter’s Colony, located about 4 miles north of Kronau, Saskatchewan.
