Acting erican

ByRobert Boulanger

Les Grèves was a vacation colony run by the good Franciscan Fathers, forty miles northeast of Montreal. Every summer, three hundred boys spent weeks or months there. My older brother Michel and I stayed the entire summer. All the boys slept in a large two-floor dormitory-a big, airy barn of a building with rows of beds on several floors. Michel and I had our beds on the second floor, about thirty beds apart.
